Dog Days

All the dogs are in my life are the 2-d kind. This was from a magazine assignment a few years ago, still one of my favorite pieces and a turning point in my illustration. Before this assignment my colors where very muted, but with one bright jolt of red I was hooked on adding in a punch of color in my work.

(I'm thankfully avoiding the dog days of summer as I'm currently on vacation in Michigan where we don't even have the air conditioner running!)

I think Alicia is right - separation anxiety indeed! Fun sketch, Heather!:)

This reminds me too much of my Valentine when she was a pup. That girl loved her shoes! =o)
Cute illustration, Heather. I like the pop of color!
