Rockport Publishers and Modern Dog Design Co. invited artists, illustrators, and designers around the world to submit artwork with dogs as main subjects for their next book titled: 1000 Dog Portraits. Being the big dog fan I am, I couldn't not participate. Take a look at the illustrations I submitted :)
Matita is my Italian dog: she's a mixed breed but somewhere in there, there's supposed to be some kind of terrier.

Bruno is a German Boxer and he's one of the 4 dogs my father has in the farm in Colombia. He's so sweet, in spite of the gladiator face.

Zagala is my Grandma and Aunt Lili's dog; she's a cute French Poodle. She never gets those ridiculous poodle haircuts, but just for the fun of it, I decided to portrayed her in Paris with a new more fashionable style, hehehe.

And here's Snack, a Beagle. I don't own any beagle, so he's imaginary (and so is his name), but I imagine him being a true explorer ;)

The last one is Woof!: an imaginary mongrel I created for an old Spoonflower contest. You can buy this design on fabric, wallpaper and giftwrap here.

So… what do you think of them? I hope you like them.
The Judges will choose their favourite pieces today, and I really hope they'll include in some (if not all, hehehe) of mine in the new book.
