Pig Brother rEvolution

Pig Brother rEvolution - Illustration
Sweet swine of mine.

We always knew that, but now even one of the world’s leading authorities on hybridisation in animals claims humans evolved from pigs or, most exactly, pigs having promiscuous relations with monkeys. Yeah, you got it. Sounds crazy? Geneticist Gene McCarthy (nomen omen) believes human evolution is a bit different from what we think: his theory is that our ancestors were foxy chimpanzees mating with stallion pigs. You can check his article on macroevolution.net.

You may ask yourself: is eating pork a form of cannibalism? A soft anthropophagy?
So here is a quick and simple digital illustration that came out by playing with layer styles and effects. Almost like playing with genetics.
Now that you know it, next time try to have more respect for your pig brother!
P.S. No human flesh was injured during the creation of this graphic design. Just human brain.

Yeah, everywhere there’s lots of piggies
Playing piggy pranks
And you can see them on their trotters
Down at the piggy banks
Paying piggy thanks
To thee pig brother

[Alternative lyrics to George Harrison’s Piggies]
