'Each image winks at the cosmic joke of existence.' - ANTENNA MAGAZINE If you've ever eavesdropped on people's conversations, had heart-to- hearts with friends or family, or even just paid attention to the thoughts bouncing around in your own head, you'll undoubtedly find that we humans have, well, issues. In a stroke of cruel genius, internationally exhibited artist, Romeo Alaeff, asks- what if animals had as much emotional baggage as we do? Pairing gorgeously detailed drawings with overheard snippets from human conversation, I'll Be Dead by the Time You Read This collects the neurotic animals that have become an art world sensation. 'I love Romeo's animals. I'm looking at one right now-a stoic little eagle saying 'Don't pity me.' Personally, like being pitied, but I appreciate the sentiment.' - MOBY
