Ta-Da! It’s here – Christmas day, which also means that the commissions I have done for presents are now postable! I am working on yet another top-secret pooch drawing this evening, so I am going to instead leave you with a number of the pieces I have done in the last couple of weeks that you haven’t been able to see. For starters, we have the featured image of Eshe, ink on wood. Eshe is adoptable through Handsome Dan’s Rescue in RI.
One of the first pieces I worked on was this set of ink drawings of Jake, a sweet elderbull who was fostered and then adopted by the founders of Handsome Dan’s so that he could live out his golden years in a safe, loving home. I had fun with this one, as I love his face, and so I ended up doing two drawings of him. Here is the first – I also took photos of the various stages of the drawing to share!
The second piece of Jake was one of him sleeping on his favorite couch:
It has been fun working on these pieces, trying to capture dogs I have never met – a huge thank you to the folks who requested these! I am glad to hear from recipients that the pieces are well liked, and look forward to doing many more pieces for people (I will be doing many more pieces in the style of Eshe, the featured image). If you are interested in commissioning a piece, feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org! For tonight, I’m getting back to work on yet another gift, this time from me to someone special. This is definitely of a dog I have met, and I hope that it is well received! So, while you won’t see the sketches here tonight, check back, as I will be sure to post it once the proverbial cat is out of the bag!
