Illustrator Ben Hed posted a new comic to his Instagram account one and a half years ago. A kitty named Pixie got a foster pal, the former military dog Brutus, in it. The Internet fell in love with the cute pair immediately, so Ben decided to devote a whole series to their little fun adventures. “Honestly, while at work, Pixie and Brutus were just another weird comic idea I had. I never intended to make a series for them,’ Hed told in an earlier interview.
I just thought it was a funny idea to introduce a cute little kitten to a large war dog that was intimidating. So I made the first cute animal comic for Pixie and Brutus and people loved it so much, I just kept making them. Now, on Instagram, over 2.3 million individuals follow Ben, and Pixie and Brutus contributed quite a bit to this crazy figure. Their new comics are just as pawesome as the old ones, whether you are new to the series or know these two very well, which can really brighten up your day.

The series is, of course, much more than just its main characters. The supporting cast is amazing, the storytelling is exciting, and the art is lovely. But it really brings the complex, polar opposite stars of the show to another level. Ben introduced the beloved feline: “Pixie is a tiny, joyful, energetic kitten.” “She’s innocent, and somewhat ignorant of the serious, dangerous things around her, too.”
By comparison, Brutus is a huge, scar-faced German Shepherd. He was rescued as a Military Working Dog by the owner of Pixie after retirement (MWD). Brutus is the very opposite of Pixie, in several respects. He’s… seen things. He’s a very stern and intimidating military dog, but he’s got Pixie’s soft spot and he’s doing what he can to protect her from the harsh realities of the world around him.

Keeping up with demand from such a big fan army might put pressure on others, but instead, Hed used it to push himself even further as an artist, saying “I worry about the performance of each comic, but before I created Pixie and Brutus, I worried about that too.” Following that interview, his Instagram followers increased dramatically, which he said never ceases to amaze him.
