Another day, another doggie collage.

Lately I’ve been dabbling with some film work – figuring out how to work with editing, lighting, etc. Perhaps sometime in the future I’ll tackle a few collage-related film pieces. We shall see…

Anyway, I hope everyone is having a glorious week – and happy-almost-Friday!

Here’s the finished piece. My client gave this collage to his wife as a Christmas gift. I was happy to hear that it was well received. This dog sure looked pretty cute – in all the reference photos the client sent me, Shelby had her tongue hanging out.

Anyway, I’m off to enjoy the weekend. I’m going to work away on my children’s book illustrations – and I must say, it’s pretty difficult being secretive about my book since I’m so used to sharing my progress pictures, etc. The only image from the project I plan to post is the cover art once I’ve finished it. I’m half-way done with the book – can’t wait until it’s finished and ready for print. I’m excited to share it – even though it’s got a ways to go.

The dog collage I did before this one was of a dog that I thought was named Louie. Turns out this is the real Louie, and the last dog was Jonny. Anyway, I finished my last dog portrait in the series of commissioned pieces for one of my clients. Next week I have a meeting at a gallery that might possibly put my work on display.

I’ve been extremely busy with work these days, but now things have cooled down and I will be able to focus more on art making (hopefully). I’ll try to get started on another piece tonight or tomorrow night. I hope everything is going well with everyone!

I have one more collage to do in this commission series before I’m finished. In other news, I’m working on last minute work for Art on the Avenue which will be on Saturday. This will be my first time ever doing an outdoor festival. Depending on how much I like it, I may or may not do more in the future.

I just finished this one–and stayed up a little too late working on it. Anyway, I’m actually doing a series of dog portraits for commission work. There will be a few others in the future scattered here and there in my posts.

I finished the commissioned dog collage tonight–much to my surprise. I thought it would take me at least another day, even though the piece is fairly small. Now I’ll have some time to work on the portrait collage tomorrow.

A lot of the people in the area are obsessed with their dogs–on a busy street a couple blocks from my house, there are two (not one, but two) dog bakeries. It was only fitting that I’d do a park scene that included a little dog.

And I’m done with this series for now. I’m off to work on cutting paper for my next projects. Perhaps another portrait? A flower? Another animal piece? We’ll see where my inspiration leads me.
