I am thankfully, pretty darn content at the moment. Many times the past couple of years especially, I have thought - I can't do it for obvious physical reasons and it's added stress to some degree - because jobs come with deadlines. I like to draw when the mood, idea hits.
This is one deadline I'm sure I'll meet, I love drawing & painting these images.
17 for sure for the book! I just realized last night I AM already 1/2 done! because I'm having so much fun! BONUS -I was given sheets with 'outlines' - draw what you want!
Draw what i want!? YOU BET! And that is exactly what I am doing with all the LOVE I can muster I might add! I want this book to help and be successful - Not for the reasons most do - I want it to work! I want children to have safe interactions with dogs.
I know a couple of children & adults who have been bitten over the years, I've blogged about it several times. Storm was bit when little. My fault. ;( I left him with our dog - who I felt more than safe with, but another male dog who' was in heat was visiting and Storm got in the way - one second. I should he been more careful with a dog I did not know. Lesson learned.
Do what you love!
I did work for Windy Willow Pet service in the past, Go check out the link: http://www.windywillowspetservices.ca
They have a little video I just saw and you will see my earlier work for them! The puppy training kit - it is easy and fun and interactive for children I highly recommend it for anyone bringing home a puppy!! I was honoured when Rachelle the owner of the company called me again, not to mention I really like her- we hit it off & she trust me - I know what she wants - and will do my pest to provide it.
These paintings will also make wonderful framed prints imo, or even gift cards.
Either way I will helping prevent accident between dogs and children and that is fricken AWESOME!!!
Wow, it brought back memories- Daisy was a pup when worked on the puppy kit project and she is in many of the images! Poppy was not even thought of, time flies.
Well it's back to it! I have drawings to do - I'm going to sneak in all our dogs of course and few of my friends dogs too!
I had a great cannabis cartoon come to mind in the tub and I believe I will try to start a daily strip - probably about the dogs. I'm going to draw them smaller to see if I can still squeeze them in more often!!
Have a terrific day.
Spend it with a dog you love... I have 4! That a lot of patting - I'm up for the task!
Do what you love and the rest will follow!
Oh, listening to a new podcast called the Cavern of Secrets. I Am enjoying. Like girlfriends hanging out and they talk about it all. I agree with most. If you wan to hear a normal Canadian conversation - have a listen.
Is it only Canadians who admit how f*cking scary Donald Trump is?
