On Small Business Saturday I announced my newest product, The Dog Pack!
I have wanted to do this project for at least 4 years, and I finally got around to getting it done. Originally I was going to work all digitally to complete it, but found that hand-painting the dogs was a better way to get the look I desired. Each dog was painted on paper in acrylic and then scanned into the computer to work into the design.
Breeds were chosen mostly based on popularity and assigned with what seemed to feel right! Sometimes this was based on size, or my personal interactions with that breed of dog.
The design was a tossup between doing something that looked “pop-art” style or vintage. In the end I felt that the vintage style just visually looked better so I went with that.
