New print today! A sweet & sleepy French Bulldog. Because sometimes, all we really want is to sleep in…(ok, most of the time. Or is that just me?) 😴 To get your very own copy, click on the image above, or visit ChickenpantsStudio.etsy.com. Now, back to naps, er…work. I mean work.
Today’s sketch: Rainbow is the New Black. This dog knows what’s up. Down with tame neutral tones. Up with color. Lots of color. Gobs and gobs of color.
Today’s drawing, for your amusement: Sleepy Bunnies.
I was recently commissioned to draw a portrait of this lovely lab lady, Daisy:
One of my drawings in it’s new home! This pup is a custom pet portrait. This is a regram from @elsabean : Look what I got in the mail yesterday! Lovingly drawn and painted by Claire of @chickenpants ~ this is my Daisy girl. I had her for 14 years. She’s been gone for 6 years ~ still missing her. Thank you so much Claire!
And here’s the original image:
I can’t take on much custom work at the moment, but I find it incredibly meaningful to make portraits in various media of beloved pets who have died. It was extremely cathartic for me to create an art quilt when a beloved dog of mine died. If I can help others process their grief/ honor a beloved pet in a small way, it makes me happy. And of course, I hope it makes the people who commission my work happy, too!
Trying something new for today’s sketch – a colorful watercolor bubble background. I’m a huge fan of stark white backgrounds (obviously), but I’ve been having fun playing around with watercolor blobs lately.
