Kilgore Trout by WonderDookie Kilgore Trout by WonderDookie
One of my favorite literary characters of all time. A crabby, old, dirt poor, sci-fi writer named Kilgore Trout from a number of Kurt Vonnegut Jr. novels.
I've been trying to continue doing something a little more abstract from my normal style. I based my image of Kilgore on Vonnegut himself, and a couple of Vonnegut's prints.
According to Vonnegut Kilgore trout died in the year 2004. The epitaph on his tombstone says, "Life is no way to treat an animal."

Edit: Shit, and now the world has lost Vonnegut himself. Sad day.

"So it goes."

this is the first Vonnegut-related artwork i've seen on DA. I like his hand
I love how Vonnegut will start rambling about one of his sci-fi stories midway through a paragraph. :trout:

Thank you much. I looked up Kilgore Trout not long after I uploaded this, and there are only a couple of other Vonnegut related drawings that I could find.

Nice style, different, but really good.
Man I wouldn't like to run into him in the streets, he'd probably have a go at me for being young and then lecture me on something from his day.

No, he'd probably just start screaming about the air being poison, or something along those lines.
