Lauren Gregg is a designer and illustrator from Athens, GA, and she’s also a dog owner, which makes her my kind of people. She created the above painting for a tribute in San Francisco to filmmaker Wes Anderson (referencing, from Moonrise Kingdom, “Was he a good dog?” “Who’s to say.”, which made me laugh harder and longer than anything I’ve seen in a movie all year, as in, people in the theater were probably getting annoyed with me). One of Lauren’s pups, a Frenchie named Reggie, suffers from allergy problems, and Lauren’s selling silkscreen prints of her Moonrise Kingdom painting to help pay for his treatments. If you use the code dogmilk, she’ll give you 30% off till December 1st. Go help!
This tongue-in-cheek anatomy poster from Labradors Worldwide made its way into my inbox recently and I couldn’t wait to share it! I think all dog parents, regardless of breed or mix, will appreciate this. My faves?
Ears: Soft, extremely kissable and sensitive enough to hear a packet of treats being opened in the next town.
And Nose: The Lab nose is the most powerful ‘instrument’ on earth. It’s thought that Labradors could smell sausages 30 years before sausages were even invented.

Are you familiar with the work of Helen Dardik? She?s a prolific illustrator and pattern designer, so chances are you’ve encountered her creations before. Her illustrations and patterns are colorful, retro-inspired, and whimsical with an element of ordered chaos — it?s like she took a picture of what?s in my brain when I’m having an awesome day and made drawings of it. Oh, and there are dogs, too. You can find Helen at her website, blog, Etsy shop, and Pinterest. (More images after the jump!)
