What happens when the end of the world approaches and you and your trusty steed are asked to join the Four Horsemen? Would you have what it takes to survive a post-apocalyptic society? Artist Jenny Kammerer explores just that.
Jenny, a seasoned equestrian and heavy metal fan, can’t imagine a better friend in life than Gibson, her big, huggable, Quarter Horse/Draft cross gelding. With his perpetually cheerful disposition, inquisitive nature and habit of showering everyone in his path with affection, Jenny knew from the day she met Gibson that they’d stick together until the end of the world.
But what happens when the world actually does end and the fabled Four Horseman arrive to recruit Earth’s remaining equestrians for the cause? Do these two have what it takes to make it in a post-apocalyptic society, or will they become the least effective horse people of Armageddon?
Jenny Kammerer is a professional artist, video producer and frustrated Philadelphia sports fan who’s been in the saddle since the age of four. When she was 16, she met her Paint/QH/Draft cross Gibson (aka Guitar Solo) as a green two-year-old, and quickly settled into the training side of equestrianism, drawing inspiration from the techniques of Pat Parelli and other natural horsemanship teachers. Known for most of her childhood as both the awkward artsy one and the weird horse girl, she always seemed destined to draw nonsensical horse cartoons. In addition to her independent illustration work, she currently teaches painting classes at Paint With A Twist and produces short-form documentaries that can be seen on Horse TV.
