Pets again, sorry (not sorry).

I'm thankful to all who hired me. I enjoy it and they're pretty nice and straight forward: I get photo, I return drawing. bish bash bosh. 

Photos I get are usually low-res, sometimes a couch or chair leg might be obscuring the animal, which if not too obstructing can be removed by me. Sometimes the lighting is poor, sometimes a background too distracting. My job therefore is to use that imperfect spur-of-the-moment photo, remove the background (though not necessarily) and turn it into something more permanent, more focused. Pretentious diatribe over, just look at the friggin' dogs.

Just a quick portrait comparison

A couple of portraits from last year, both in black and grey ink. One cartoony in style and one a bit more straight laced, though faces weren't exaggerated at all in either. Something to think about for yourselves.

Two good friends of ours, from 
Chorlton Runners' running club! 
They run in lots of different countries,
and have two cats. Also, he turned 40
and she bought this for him.
