Woof.... Sunday!


Ironic.....

Confession:

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



Carpe Diem, 
Happy Sunday!

  1. Oh no, I'm sincerely sorry that anyone would judge you harshly or tease you for such a thing. Everyone has their own fears and trepidations (and dislikes). If animals aren't your cup of tea, don't worry at all.

    Though she did keep them as pets when her own kids were little, my maternal grandma wasn't/isn't a fan of dogs at all, nor is my step-dad, so I'm really used to people who aren't into common types of pets. It's great that you feel comfortable sharing such with us and are able to draw custom illustrations all the same. Way to go!!!
