Slobbery kisses, wet noses, wagging tails, and wiggly butts... From the moment I learned what a dog was, they have been one of the few things that breathe pure joy into my life. Dogs are inherently kind, happy, humble, and forgiving... They remind us to stop and smell the flowers and never sweat the small stuff.
Intricate patterning inspired by Japanese printmaking and the fluid energy that dogs carry works to capture the individuality of each dog illustrated, highlighting their personality and providing a vivid, simplified, and vibrant background for the highly rendered pups to jump off of.
These works strive to explore that joy, to give these loving and loyal creatures the recognition they deserve, yet, never ask for... To scream to the world that... They're All Good Dogs.
