Where would we be without our pets? In fact where would this crazy artist be without any animals to draw.
Two fun things this week. Firstly I joined illustrationFriday.com/ I hope to complete the weekly challenge as an extra way of refining my picture book skills. I’m looking forward to the challenge, all you budding artists please join me, there is some amazing work in there.
The second event is an art GIVEAWAY yes another one. This time a chance to win a portrait of your favourite pet (by ME). Illustrated in soft colour Derwent pencils. It will be no bigger than an A4 page in layout and I will be drawing the winner out of the hat on the date of my monthly newsletter 15th of May.
To be in the draw you must subscribe to the newsletter. (top right) For those already on the subscriber list, YOU are already in the draw. (This is not the follow button) If you need an idea of how your pet might turn out, just take a look at Tink (above) she is my friend Kathleen’s dog.
Kathleen has lovely website, Tink sometimes visits from time to time but mostly Kathleen blogs about food and life in general, she is fantastic writer, often humorous, yet sometimes she touches on subjects we all need to think about. Check out her latest healthy recipe here. I am going to try this one for sure it looks YUM. http://kathleencaron.com/comfort-food-thats-good-for-you/
Now back to my animals, these two mismatched friends are my sisters dogs. I loved the contrast in size and could imagine they are the best of friends.
Animals can sooth the soul, bring joy where there is only loneliness. I believe we all need a pet in our lives. Please tell me about your pet and how they have changed your life? Good luck in the competition. (NOW CLOSED)
