They Can Talk is a comics series created by artist Jimmy Craig which showcases conversations between animals. Being a dad to two felines, he believes that animals have similar thoughts as humans. He began his project back in 2015 and since then he encountered some difficulties.
“Sometimes it’s challenging to give the animals recognizable expressions without making them look too human. I still try to keep the comic somewhat grounded in reality,” the artist told Bored Panda in an interview and added that he thinks that his illustrations got better over time.
“I still keep the backgrounds simple (or non-existent), but I think there’s more consistency in the look and style of the animals,” Craig revealed.
His artwork has attracted a large number of people, and his Instagram page counts over 455,000 followers, whilst each post has tens of thousands of likes.
“I’m satisfied as long as I’m doing something creative. Thankfully, exposure from the comic has led to other opportunities and I hope it continues to serve as a sort of portfolio for my writing and illustration,” he said.
