Because I work retail during the week, this is on my mind every damn year. It’s not as bad this year because I’m with someone who really enjoys Christmas music, and that’s kind of making me enjoy it, but this year I decided to reeeeeally think it through. And I need something to unwind after drawing hundreds of dogs.
Thought I was done with portrait work, but turns out drawing dogs is much more appealing to me than drawing humans.
A few months ago, a lady named Brenda Anderson of Happy Puppy Park in Vancouver, WA came to me and asked if I’d draw Christmas portraits of her clients’ dogs. I agreed, and the last few weeks I’ve been providing a portrait for all one hundred seventy dogs in care at the center. You can check out seventy-eight of my favorites on my personal site.
