Our "Flat" Friends (Thanks, Lili!!)



Time for a change of pace.  Thought everyone might be getting tire of our recent dog-show posts, so here's something different.  Today's post is all about Lili Chin, the fantastic artist who has drawn fun doggie 'toons for Brutus and several of our blog friends.  

I commissioned her to draw Brutus in honor of his first birthday last summer, and posted it on the blog as soon as Lili sent me the file.  I'm so tickled that several of our friends liked it so much that they also had Lili do some artwork for them.  Recently I had her draw Lorenza as her prize for winning our "That's Ridiculous" contest.  

Here's a few of her fun drawings of doggies we know:

That's Sedona, our Duck Trolling Retriever who was one of our first blog buddies.


 This is Brutus the pug dreaming of his favorite thing!


The drawing of  Oliver & Sophie made it into their pawrent's wedding!


And finally, the fashionable Lorenza, drawn in one of her trademark dresses!

Hope those made you smile! Lili really has a knack of capturing the expression on each dog's face, making them instantly recognizable, and she is really fun to work with.  You can see a catalog of Lili's doggie art on her flickr page or on her website.  Her drawings are very reasonably priced, and to make it even better, a portion of the proceeds are donated to the doggie rescue organization of your choice!!  To find out more, email Lili at lili.chin@gmail.com.

I've got another fun (non-dog show!!) idea starting for the next few Fridays, hope to see you all tomorrow!!
