Casey Porn is an artist and “small-dog enthusiast” living and working in Raleigh, North Carolina. Her vibrant, curious, endearing portraits often feature dogs as subjects, with her own rescue pups serving as her muses. She was kind enough to sit down with Dog Milk and tell us a little bit about her work, her process, and her dogs.
Alina Kremer is a pet portrait artist in San Francisco who operates under the name Michi Design. Her adorable pup pictures are vibrant and lifelike but with a bit of playfulness, seen primarily in her use of background. I think it’s so cool that all her paintings start with a red under-painting, which peeks through in the final product.
Philadelphia-based photographer Andrew Pinkham has been working on a series of 19th Century animal portraits, including some very fancy-looking hounds.
As a big fan of stamps, I was overjoyed to come across these custom hand-carved pet portrait stamps by Japanese artist Kozue. What an incredible and fun take on pet portraiture! Stamps are one of my favorite simple ways of sprucing up cards and mailing boxes, but really the possibilities are endless. And to have my dog’s face on a stamp would be too much fun. I think I might stamp everything in my path.
