3 girls 1 dog


I was just on my way to teach a class and I had a few minutes so I thought I would post a little sketch. I drew this dog because of a job I was working on. The client gave me a character description that I found quite funny. They describe the kid--brown hair, skinny, smart, comes from a good family, likes to read and doesn't have a dog. Whew, I almost drew him with one. In fact the urge to draw this kid with a dog was so strong that I drew this one ( I just didn't send it to the client). It makes me wonder if they told me not to draw a dog because it is a problem I've had in the past? I don't normally draw random dogs in sketches. Maybe it is a subconscience thing I do? Or is it a problem they have had with other artists and they just didn't want me to fall into the same trap. I'm perplexed. I will definetly take a closer look at the things I'm sending out. Who knows what I might have unknowingly sent? A dog today--tomorrow a giraffe or a golpher..or what about spiders...or unicorns?

Poor kid. Random dogs are my favorite kind.

By the way, congrats on your most recent WSJ job. If you keep up at this rate I'm going to have to renew my subscription.

Maybe she WANTS a dog so she needs a look of yearning in her eyes.
Maybe that's the reason they said she didn't have one. ;-)

I like your simpleton too.
