I paint custom pet portraits from photographs and will ship anywhere in the USA. Allow two to three weeks turnaround time. My paintings are acrylic on canvas that is mounted to a wooden block, so the painting is ready to hang when you get it! No framing needed. Go here to commission a portrait.
What’s the next best thing to a custom pet portrait painting? A custom pet stamp. You pet is your mascot. So you should put them on everything! Fabric, paper, bandanas, scarves, T-shirts, stationery, wallpaper … The possibilities are endless. I work from photos. Buy a custom pet stamp here.
This is my bunny Glenn and my first pet stamp.
I created these dog illustrations with a bamboo pen dipped in “ink.” I actually used high-flow acrylic paint, which works just as well or better than most ink I can find these days. I combined the drawings in Adobe Illustrator and used them to screen print doggie bandanas.
It really is called a bunny ears cactus. These are prints from original linocuts (aka giant stamps) filled in with watercolor. One of my favorite artists is Walter Anderson, a fantastic printmaker from Ocean Springs, Mississippi. His family continues to print and hand paint his works today.
My bunny loves to eat fresh organic veggies from Johnson’s Backyard Garden in Austin. I created linocuts of these vegetables and then printed them on watercolor paper to allow hand coloring with watercolor and gouache.
I enjoyed drawing on watercolor paper with a bamboo pen dipped in ink. It’s lovely. Since good dip ink it hard to find these days (it’s all water-based now), I find that using high-flow acrylic paint works just as well.
One thing certain after the 2016 election is that we are a country divided into rural vs. urban: red state, blue city. The traditional Republican/Democrat values and personas no longer apply. Some of us find ourselves not wanting to identify with either party.
I love the Parisian ad posters of the 1890s.
Because a lot of people feel like this right now.
