And since we are on the subject of dogs, I can only say that at work I am happily working on some new pet-related products (although that's really all I can say. Working a year in advance means I can't talk about all the fun stuff I'm doing NOW). It's been a fun project to work on, and very close to my heart since I grew up with (several) dogs and volunteered at a shelter with my mom in Texas for a couple of years whenever possible.

About...goodness...two years ago I illustrated two dogs that are the adorable mascots of Gulu-Gulu Cafe in Salem, Massachusetts, and are famous enough to have several shirts featuring them executed by different artists. I was happy to add to Gulu-Gulu's store with my takes on Jack (Boston Terrier) and Charlie (Pug). Jack's shirt came out pretty much right away, with Charlie being left for a later date. At the end of 2012, Charlie Shirt came to be! Steve, the owner, actually sold out of them, but he was awesome enough to make another small run so my boyfriend and I could have one. There are a few left- you can purchase one here.

I've been fortunate enough to also own both shirts! I also waste no time in telling people who admire the illustrations that the artist was one of my professors in school.ReplyDelete
Isn't it fulfilling to see your own design on shirts other people wear? Charlie the Pug holding a mug of Gulu-Gulu's coffee is just adorable. It isn't a surprise why those shirts sold out immediately. Hope to see more creative designs from you! Ciao!ReplyDelete
