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!
I’m super, super thrilled to kick off our second month of The Scratchbook with one of my favorite illustrators ever: Jo Chambers of Studio Legohead. I’ve been a huge admirer of Jo’s work for many years and am beyond excited to have her as our February Scratchbook artist. And, since February is the month of hearts and candy and ooey-gooey confessions of love, it’s only appropriate to feature some of Dog Milk’s “canine couples”!
Rumor has it, Smash and Coco Bean of Chic Sprinkles have had an on-going relationship for some time. It comes as no surprise, then, that they would choose February, the month of love, to publicly address these rumors — and ignite renewed interest in their fiery love affair. But, will the flames of passion burn eternal? Only time will tell.
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!
We’re big, big fans of Jo Chambers aka Studio Legohead here at Dog Milk (have you seen the portrait she did of Miles??), so when Jo reached out with her newest series, I jumped at the chance to share it! In honor of The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and all that is royal and jewel-encrusted, Studio Legohead is offering your pups the same regal treatment: custom portraits in the Jubilee style, complete with actual gold and silver foil crowns. Blingin’!
Jo from Studio Legohead sent me a link to the most adorable pet drawings and embroideries. Boy, is she talented. I love that some of the dogs have Pucci scarves on their heads!
