It’s a new month (already?!), which means it’s time for a new Scratchbook artist! I hope you’re excited, because our Scratchbook this month features the work of the immensely talented Evie Kemp. I’m a HUGE fan of her bold illustration style and am flattered that she chose Wrigley and Smash as her Scratchbook muses!
Twenty years ago, New Jersey-based artist Tara Metzler rescued a pit bull named Novia from an abusive situation. Since then, she has dedicated her time and talents to animal welfare organizations and rescue groups, most recently launching a collection of PSA-style posters to bring awareness and advocate for this wonderful (and misunderstood) breed.
Dog Stalking is a weekly column on Striped Cat Studio, a design and lifestyle blog by Bay Area designer Kate Wong, that features watercolor illustrations of dogs Kate has met during her recent adventures. So far, she has profiled 15 adorable dogs (my favorite might be Chicken, a sweater-wearing Chihuahua mix that will dance and spin for treats) with more added each week.
Editor’s Note: We’re excited about our new art column The Scratchbook! Each month we’ll be featuring an exclusive dog-themed illustration done by one of our favorite artists. Enjoy!
To say that I’m excited about this month’s Scratchbook artist would be a huge understatement! Seriously. I am so stoked, you guys. When Jana Bonsignore, whose fashion-inspired illustrations we featured last year, sent in the illustrations we commissioned for March, I kinda lost my mind (in a good way). This series, which she’s calling “Fun Facts“, features several adorable — and amusingly sassy — French Bulldogs. Read on to see them all!
