My cats both have unique personalities that bring me joy ( and sometimes annoyance) everyday. I have two cats that love to hang out with me when I am creating artwork, usually by laying on top of whatever I am trying to draw or paint. One of my favorite things to illustrate has been my cats and my friend's pets. Before I draw a pet I like to know what are their unique traits and behaviors. By finding out their qualities as seen through their owner's eyes I can make a portrait that highlights what makes them special. Maybe your pet is quiet and moody, maybe they are hyper and friendly. The challenge of making those qualities come through onto a piece of paper is what makes illustration so fun. Let me illustrate your pet. All types of pets are welcome, even a lizard, if that's your thing.
