"Some of our greatest historical and artistic treasures we place with curators in museums; others we take for walks." - Roger A. Caras, Animal Welfare Activist
1000 Dog Portraits is a compilation of quirky, fun, fanatical illustrations, paintings, collages and drawings from designers and artists around the globe. From hounds to herding dogs, and mutts to terriers, there is a diverse range of artistic renditions from naïve and abstract to traditional portraiture.
Artist and designer Robynne Raye curates this collection that is a study guide on style for the budding artist as well as a book of inspiration to the practicing professional. There's even a chapter called, "How Many Ways Can You Draw A Beagle?" showing the myriad of ways an artist can depict a single breed of dog.
So rev up your illustration muscle and be inspired by this loving tribute to man's best friend.
Robynne Ray is cofounder of Modern Dog Design Co., in SEattle, Washington. She loves her two cairn terriers, Winnie and Conan.
"What's better than a beautifully illustrated dog portrait?
