There’s more after the jump!


These paintings were done for a baby girl’s nursery room and each painting is a cartoon version of the family’s real dogs. Initially, the request was for paintings in retro mod style with bold graphics and shapes. The problem was that the whole nursery room was already on mod overload and I suggested that having a more sketchy, simple style for the paintings would balance the room out.

There are five dogs: Tilly, a foxy mutt; Pheobe, a sly beagle; Hei, a black mutt; Jon-Jon, a dopey Old English Sheepdog, and BoBo, another Old English Sheepdog. Shown below are Tilly, Jon-Jon, and Phoebe.
