The website Animal Voices recently interviewed Patrick McDonnell about his creation of the MUTTS strip. You can stream the interview and hear Patrick discuss how the strip got its start, his relationship with his own animals, and how he creates those “little drawings filled with life.” He also talks about how his readers react to the issues he shines a spotlight on (like Guard Dog!)
Animal Voices is a volunteer-run Canadian animal advocacy and vegan lifestyle radio show. Broadcasting out of Toronto — and worldwide on the web — it covers local, national, and global animal protection issues.
