So from what I can tell from my seven minutes of research this week… The Snawfus is an American Lumberjack myth evolved from the old Native American legend of the White Stag. The Snawfus is a giant magical white deer, with antlers so large that vines, branches, flowers and moss grow amongst them. Rumored to bound from treetop to treetop with a monkey/squirrel-like ease and occasionally he appeared as a tall man with a deer’s head. And if that’s not enough, the “smoke” surrounding the Smokey Mountains is said to be the steaming breath of this legendary beast!
Our Judge for Battle Snawfus was Chicago Artist, Michael Rea. His word is law. See the results below and check out his work here: mikerea.com Feel free to voice your joy, disagreement or sadness in the comments below!
Something in the combo of earnest environmental poster and comical impossibly positioned hoof holding the pipe that i love... I also bet a Snawfus would have great weed. Submitted by the mighty Sneurat!
Titled - Nothin beats some ole fashion antlertop huntin... I'm digging the abstractions in sizes and domains! And target on his chest or not, that Snawfus looks like he has a helluva good time! Submitted by ScottyJ.
Sutter Home, the preferred social lubricant of skeezy, '70's velour short wearing Snawfuses (or dammit is it Snawfi?)... btw I am 140% confident I know this guy... Submitted by EJ
The log tv is an excellent prop! Our large footed lumberjack friend is obviously one to appreciate beauty in all its forms... the real question... is there a Snawfus butt on the flipside of that wall?
Sometimes I laugh so hard it almost makes me sad when i first look... I mean he looks like he's running sooo fast!!! Kinda digging the grainy texture too
Monkeys... nature's karmic kamikazes. My guess is he pays down the line (hint hint)... Regardless, I am a huge fan of the Snawfus pus and the monkey butt.
Nothing like a northwoods style wood fired kitchen! The question that comes to my mind is does it still smell delicious once it's gone all the way through a Snawfus?
Here's mine for battle Snawfus! If you look close, I'm going after the famed triple points nest (bird sex, waving squirrel, owl) probably should have thrown some ferns in for good measure.
Ha! I love it cause there are sooo many things i can incorrectly read into! I mean its mountains right? or is it a butt? Its a warning sign, but warning for what? Art, it makes you think, right?
I knew there were gonna be some good ones this week! The only thing that keeps me from just savoring the joy is my concern that our carefree Snawfus is about to get a Brain Candy esque facefull of bird!
Oooh second pipe in as many submissions. A fantastic rendering, but man now I sorta want there to be a basket case Snawfus under that hideous hump! 7 Points for the collar btw...
Man that is a serious rack! "what'd you do today Johnny?"... "You know slaughtered a mythical Snawfus, wore his head as a mask while i climbed to the treetops to smoke a doob!"
Yes! I love when they have that great fantasy art muscularity! Great level of hidden sh*t in the antlers, and he's got a giant, possibly moss laden, axe! Who doesn't love that?!
Once again blown away by the number of lines laid down! This one's intense! Like the Cthulhu of Snawfusessess.... Snawfus he dreams, he waits!!! And i love the little Sendak-esque sailboat in the corner.
Awww! Titled "The Little Snawfus that Could"... The wrestling fans among us will recognize this as a classic babyface... the only way he can do it is if we all get behind him... snawfus..snawfus..Snawfus..SNAWFUS! SNAWFUS!!
