I am scared of animals.... specially dogs and cats. I never liked them, I am freaking out just about the idea that I have to be near one!
Please don't leave comments like you can get over this .... my family tried, friends tried.... I am a hopeless case. My grandparents had dogs and they freaked just when they had a look at me!
In their minds I must have been the screaming and jumping lady with an almost perfect moonwalk in panic.
One time the dog escaped from the back garden and ran directly towards me. I did not see him, had just a feeling, got up and there he was. 5kg of terror in front of me.
I screamed and got on top of the chair. As this was not enough I had to climb on the table. Still screaming the poor dog, freaked out and ran directly into the wheel of the parked car.
Don't worry he made it... just got a bit dizzy!
Anyway even at uni all my friends made fun of it and knew I react crazy seeing me in action around a dog. Every time I enter a classroom they played the very famous song... Who let the dogs out?! by Baha Men.
There are many more stories like that but I don't want to ruin your Sunday!
I actually don't know how it started, but I started to get a few orders on pet illustrations. Custom pet illustrations. So I guess this is a kind of therapy....
How it works? I get an email from a very lovely person asking to illustrate the beloved pet and give a fashion touch....
I look at the photo and try to make it work.... and sometimes it works like in the illustration above!
At the moment I have been approached to illustrate a few more fashionable dogs.....
So bring it on and will illustrate your pet as well...... c'est la vie I guess!
