I had the pleasure of creating a custom pet portrait for my friend Jason Espiritu of his dog Ace. Ace is the mascot and co-owner of Ace Pet Services. He is full of energy and always on alert, ready for the next adventure. Jason sent me a few photos and I chose the one that I thought showed Ace's unique expression of curiosity. I really enjoy taking the information and photos people send me about their pets and turning it into a unique and special portrait that they can cherish always.
If you are in need of pet services such as pet sitting or dog walking, Ace Pet Services is the company for you. Jason runs his business with integrity and true appreciation of all pets and their owners. One of my favorite services he offers is taking dogs on hikes around the Los Angeles area. He takes dogs out to get exercise in the beauty and adventure of a variety of hiking trails. Visit his website to check out what they have been up to. http://acepetservices.net/

M is for Muffin. I love Muffins but I rarely have them because they are pretty much like dessert for breakfast and usually I don't like too many sweet treats for breakfast. My favorite type of muffin is chocolate chocolate chip but for this illustration I chose pumpkin because we have entered fall and all anyone can talk about is pumpkin everything. A good pumpkin muffin with a hot coffee is one of my favorite fall time treats. I rarely bake but in the fall I will make my fair share of pumpkin muffins. What is your favorite type of muffin?
You can find this original illustration on my Etsy site and you can find prints, cards and other products featuring this muffin on my Society 6 site.
I have had a long break in my alphabet food series but now I am back at i with a sweet treat.. For "L" I chose to illustrate a lollypop because it are just so pretty and fun to draw. I never was a lollypop type of kid. I didn't care if I got one after being good at the doctors and it was not the first thing that grabbed my attention at a candy store. I am more of a chocolate lover than any other type of candy, but they are nice to look at. When you think of typical childhood candy, a lollypop is probably the first thing you think of. It is part of childhood and love them or hate them I am sure we all got one as a kid for doing something good. You can find this original illustration on my Etsy site and you can find prints, cards and other products featuring this lollypop on my Society 6 site.
