I couldn’t be more excited about this month’s Scratchbook feature! Those awesome kids at Crazy Rebels (the same that brought us this bad ass dog tag) have created a series of illustrations in their signature “Cartoon Rebel” style featuring everyone’s favorite Brussels Griffon: Digby Van Winkle!
Known for his love of bacon, Crazy Rebels has illustrated Digby’s “Bacon Life”. Enjoy!
A wise friend recently alerted me to the work of illustrator Roman Muradov, and when I checked it out I realized I’d seen his work before — like, all over. After all, his client roster reads like a list of some of my favorite things: The New Yorker, NPR, Village Voice, GQ, Random House. You’re possibly familiar with his distinctive style, too… and have you noticed how many pups he sneaks into his illustrations and comics? I see what you did there, Mr. Muradov. (You can check out more of his work in his portfolio, on his blog, and in his shop.)
Jude Landry is a graphic designer and illustrator based in Mississippi and, well, I dig his style in a major way. When he’s not busy teaching graphic design at Mississippi State University, he’s creating silk-screened art prints, like this ridiculously awesome Bulldog! At the moment, this is his only dog-themed print, but I would LOVE to see his take on other breeds, wouldn’t you?? Meanwhile, this illustration is also available as an iPad case, iPhone case, and even a throw pillow!
I can’t really remember how I started down the Etsy rabbit hole, but here’s how it ended up: a roundup of some of my favorite letterpress doggie cards and prints!
I discovered Rona Green‘s dog illustrations through Four & Sons, and something about her work is very endearing to me. The Melbourne, Australia-based illustrator, painter, and sculptor’s drawings and prints feature anthropomorphized, heavily-tattoed, rough-and-tumble-looking dogs who all seem to have a softer, more delicate soul lurking behind their humanoid eyes. They remind me a lot of photographs of shelter dogs — dogs who may have a harsh, scarred exterior but who really just want to be accepted and loved. (OK, OK. That kinda sounds a little cheesy. But you know what I mean, right?)
