Dogs and cats

For the last week or two, I have been working non-stop to get these cat and dog illustrations done. It was kind of stressful, since I really shy away from making anything too true-to-life (my comfort zone is making abstract patterns), but I'm so glad I did them.

I'm still making some tiny changes with color here and there but I should have them for sale in my Etsy shop soon (individuals breeds and all of them grouped together). See more on my Flickr page.

OMG. We've already got a set of alphabet cards as inspiration for our nursery-to-be. At this rate we might as well not paint as we can just paper the walls with your awesome prints!! Love these! :)

Jenn! These are so nice, really great and just very well done. I'm glad you've ventured beyond your comfort zone--you've achieved an awesome result!

These are great... you wouldn't know you're not comfortable doing life-like drawings. :)

For someone who stepped out of their comfort zone - you did a really great job! I'm a lover of vintage graphics - not particularly crazy about any animal breed -- these were the first of anything like it that i've truly enjoyed! They are fabulous!

Would you consider doing personalized ones like you did for your friend? I absolutely love these prints, I think they're so clever and creative.
