So to kick off, I'd like to share some fantastic news I received earlier this year - an illustration of mine was selected to appear in Rockport Publishers' new book, 1,000 Dog Portraits by Robynne Raye!
With 1000 illustrations of hounds, herding dogs, mutts, terriers, beagles, pugs and every dog you can think of, in 1000 different interpretations and styles (quirky, realistic, collage, paintings, drawings etc) this book is sure to be a great collection for all you canine lovers!
It is such an honour to be featured alongside the likes of Debbie Millman , Marian Bantjes , Robynne Raye (Modern Dog Design Co.) , Jessie Hartland , Joey Ellis , and a plethora of incredibly talented illustrators and designers!
It is also with a lot of mixed emotion that I share this news - at the end of that very same week after hearing such great news of being featured in the book, we lost the very family pet I had illustrated, to tick bite fever - how much life can change in the space of a week.
Sometimes life unfurls in the most mysterious, ironic ways.
