I recently ran across this amazing art by an equally amazing artist who goes by the name Viergacht.  The caption for the photo reads, “A young male North American ape, Anthropoidipes ameriborealis, patrolling his territory. ”  Note the nod to Dr. Jeff Meldrum’s 2007 paper, “Ichnotaxonomy of Giant Hominoid Tracks in North America,” which attempted to name the species that left the footprints detailed in the paper.  The PDF of that paper is available by clicking this link.  I love well-read bigfoot enthusiasts.  

Viergacht is a fantastically creative and talented artist.  He has a presence on the art collective website, Deviant Art, and specializes in realistic animal-esque fantasy stuff, as far as I can put into words.  And I love that I have a hard time categorizing this person’s art.  

For us bigfooters, it’s important and practical to know about realistic bigfoot art in case they are used in a hoax.  This goes for photographs, fur suits, digital art (like the one above), animations, and more.  For sheer enjoyment, these art pieces are just fun.  

Viergacht’s art can be seen by clicking this link.  He is available for commissions as well.  Start by contacting him at viergacht@gmail.com.  

Star Wars and Sasquatch, Together Again

Yes, it’s really true.

Like most people my age, I am a fan of Star Wars, and have been since seeing the original in the theaters back in 1977.  At that early age, I even thought that Chewbacca was a sasquatch, which of course makes me smile all these years later due to the whole Matilda fiasco, but I digress.  

Whenever Star Wars crosses with the bigfoot subject, I am, of course interested, so when I saw the graphic above I wanted to learn more.  As it turns out, the story above is true!  There is, in fact, a comic book with this story line that was produced by Dark Horse Comics with the above story line.  The story, entitled Into the Great Unknown, is contained in Star Wars Tales, Volume 19.

As it turns out, the comic book itself seems to be out of print.  The only link Amazon has is below:

Star Wars Tales Vol. 19

The good news is that someone has put the comic book out on Youtube for everyone’s enjoyment.  So, below is the Youtube version of that comic book, but be sure to give it a read in case the copyright folks notice that it’s up!
