About this book

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.

Media reviews
Every morning, next to my bathroom mirror, Romeo's anxious goldfish reminds me of the fullness of existence; for to be afraid of dying is not to lead a fearful life, but one so precious you don't want to lose it.
- Christian Rattemeyer, Associate Curator, Museum of Modern Art

"Romeo's brilliant drawings of cute, contemplative creatures make you laugh, sure, but they also make you think. And they're not just for flipping past; you'll find yourself staring at them-and relating to them-more often than not."
- Isabel Gonzalez, Senior Editor, InStyle Magazine

"Romeo's little animals have more tragic-comic personality than any character on Reality TV, and certainly more profound!"
- DB Burkeman, author of "STICKERS: Stuck-up Piece of Crap: From Punk Rock to Contemporary Art"

"I love Romeo's animals. I'm looking at one right now-a stoic little eagle saying 'don't pity me.' Personally, I like being pitied, but I appreciate the sentiment."
- Moby
