Something a little different for today’s sketch :: a fall themed corgi + coffee. It’s been feeling like fall in my neck of the woods for a little while now, I’ve just been in denial. (And to think, I could have drawn a Pugkin spice latte or something! There’s always tomorrow…
Han Solo and Princess Leia…as pugs! Hands down, my favorite drawings of last week were these two:
Star Wars played a huge part of my formative years. Huge may actually be an understatement. Writing a fan fiction trilogy may have been involved. But that’s a whole other story.
The first thing I did with the drawings was to transfer them to cotton:
Which went pretty well, I think.
The originals have sold, but the beauty of this process is that I can make them again! On any color background you like. Click here if you’d like to find out more.
And then, it finally dawned on me (thank you, kind Instagram people for suggesting this!) to make prints on paper. It was one of those major OH! RIGHT! moments. You mean I don’t have to make everything five steps more complicated? I could just do the direct thing? That…honestly never occurred to me.
I wound up making two versions of the print. A one page version, with both pugs together:
And a two print set:
Because ok, maybe I do have to make everything five steps more complicated than it needs to be after all.
Today’s dog sketch has such a Jane Austen vibe. If there were French Bulldogs in 18th century English society, that is. Can’t you just picture this dog saying, “It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a dog.”
Today’s dog sketch brought to you by the desire for more sleep. May the weekend bring you many naps!
