I’ve got crazy respect for anyone who does a 365 project (i.e., contributing an element to a cumulative project 365 days out of a year). I mean, I can’t be trusted to floss or even eat breakfast every day. German artist, designer, and photographer Anja Zaharanski’s 365 project is to illustrate a dog a day — those of her friends, that she meets in the neighborhood, or from email submissions (she’s received over 200). Anja works in mixed media, and I love the abstract but soulful feel of her illustrations. You can check out more at her project website.
If you follow Dog Milk on Twitter or Instagram, you probably saw me freaking out last week when this portrait of Wrigley arrived at my doorstep. One of my favorite illustrators and artists ever (fact), Jo Chambers of Studio Legohead, did an absolutely incredible job capturing Wrigley’s personality and that little mischievous twinkle in his eye. Life goal of commissioning a portrait of Wrigley: complete!
Dogs in Clothes is a series of paintings by California-based artist Heather Mattoon. I love that each portrait comes with its own tiny story, for example: “Charlie the Boston Terrier practices the trumpet every day after school, despite complaints from the neighbors. He aspires to be a great jazz musician one day.” How cute is that?
