A Fast Food Triptych By Cara Lowe

Triptych By Cara Lowe 1

Cara Lowe is a Pasadena based illustrator and artist. Her work is pretty great (particularly her drawings) but she does a pretty effective job of making cultural commentary.

Personally, I don’t think we give dogs much attention. While our treatment of them is ethically contested, they still are our best friends. They’re beautiful and funny and offer a type of unrivaled companionship that only they know how to do. They are very important to us!
