Pet Portraits

Unique pet illutrations of adorable pets. Get in touch with me if you have an interest!

 

Would you like a unique illutration print of your dog or cat? Get in touch with me by email or phone. I only need a nicely well-lit headshot photo (or two). 

During 2017 and into this year, I have been illustrating pets for The Paw Prints Shop. People send in photos of their pets and I use those photos to create a unique illustration of their dog or cat … which usually includes a colorful pair of glasses! The Paw Prints Shop is the genius inspiration of Amy Bone, who is a Chicago photographer of both people and pets. She wanted to expand her business into more than just photos and open up an Etsy shop for her products, which include custom portraits ... along with coffee mugs, water bottles and other items with pet illustrations and some fun "pet sayings" products. Amy’s shop has been very successful in the period of one year and I’m sure she will continue to add more products and creative pet goodies.

 
Amy and I met here in Mount Pleasant, SC, her home before moving to Chicago, and discussed the possibilities. Although my experience drawing pets was limited, I jumped at the chance to expand my skills and was excited about this new project. I have now illustrated over 30 dogs and 10 cats and am hoping to begin my own pet portrait business here in Charleston (with Amy’s blessing, I might add!). Anyone interested in a pet portrait can contact me through my website - or just give me a call. Now that I have begun this journey, so many dogs I see out and about catch my attention as a new breed I haven’t illustrated yet. And the pets themselves are as individual as people .. so no two look the same. See some of my illustrations here:
