huge Bulldog

dear blog,

Walking around in Williamsburg I stumbled upon this HUGE (American?) Bulldog. The owner said that this dog was about 30 lbs. bigger than they are supposed to get.

Merry Christmas!

Dear blog,

Here is my first annual Christmas Card! The idea was to get a bunch of the RIT illustration kids to make a christmas card/portfolio piece and send it around. It turned out to be a lot of fun. This was just what I needed to get motivated...A DEADLINE!!!
Everyone I sent cards to got their own individual drawings inside.

Thanks to everyone who participated!

The downside to Product Illustration

Dear blog,

I was standing in line at the food co-op today and noticed these cans of pet food.
Everything seems fine until you look closely at the animals' faces.

Egads! Is it just me, or is there something eerily human about that dog's eye. Or in the elongation of the cat's nose and the shape of its jaw. Getting proportions just right is tough, especially with cats.
It reminds me of the covers of the Animorphs books, right around the last shade of the person becoming the creature.
