Dog and Cats PET Caricatures in Austin and various animal events

Many interesting things have been happening on the artistic side of my life.  Beside doing paintings, commissions, and teaching, I've also been staying busy doing Dog and Cat Pet caricatures at different events in Austin and participating in different animal related events.  
Pet caricatures at the events are usually done live and from photos.  If your pet is not with you at the event, I can paint him from a photo on your phone on a spot.  These caricatures are great gifts for any pet lover.  I use markers and special pencils.  You can also order caricatures from my website, it's $30 per picture in color.

Recently I was invited to do pet caricatures at WHOLE PAWS events at WHOLE FOODS in Gateway and Bee Cave stores.  It was a lot of fun.   Here are a couple of photos from that event. 

This summer I did dog caricatures with  Walk Your Dog Austin organization at National Dog Party Day in Austin.  Walk Your Dog Austin is a great company that connects dog owners to various pet events and pet friendly places in Austin. 

I also participated at Puppy Mill Awareness Day 2013 in Austin, it was a wonderful successful event with many great people who love animals.   I met a lot of awesome people from local animal rescue organizations there.   My favorite weather man from KXAN news Jim Spencer was a speaker at the event.   Here are some photos of me doing dog caricatures there.   

I also painted dog caricatures with Paws of Austin at Great Dane get together and Austin Pet Expo.  I will post photos soon.

And I was glad to donate some of my animal artwork and services to AUSTIN PETS ALIVE auction, Bikers for Boxers, and Dogs Out Loud 'Tails under the Stars' auction  events to benefit Animal rescues. 


This Saturday I'll be doing caricatures with Austin Animal Alliance at FETCHING ART Auction and fundraising event in Cedar Park, TX.  The event is from 6:30-9:30 November 2nd.  Several local artists donated their artwork (I have a dog painting there as well) for the auction.  Please visit their page for more information.
