Mabelle and Kato




Here's a couple more dogs done on commission for some friends of mine. The drawing of the Pug is "Kato" for my friend, Justin and the Acrylic painting of the Hound Dog, "Mabelle" is for two of my old roommates- Becky and Eric. Now I might start a new business drawing and painting dogs.

Kato came out fantastic, Dan. I've already put it into a frame. Mabel looks great, too. I think you might be onto something here. Maybe you can hook up with some pet shops and advertise there. Ads in an issue of dog magazines could work too.

Thanks again, Justin.
I noticed at least 3 different pet stores when I was in Park Slope yesterday, and I wished I made a new flyer of just pets. I'll work on that.

These are awesome, awesome, awesome, Dan!!! Justin had emailed me the Kato portrait and I told him it was gorgeous. You captured his likeness amazingly and it looks real. I'd go with what Justin said...

Thanks, Jesse! Yeah, I think I am going to pursue it; I have to explore a lot of different ways of making money in these crazy times...

I think Kato came out great, but I really love the more caricatured look of Mabelle. Excellent job!
