Tartan Trip



'Pet Peeves' is this weeks topic for Illustration Friday.
So continuing on in my pseudo 50's style we have Dora and her dog Hero.
Dora is on a tartan trip having just discovered that she has Scottish roots.
Hero is not impressed, in fact he's a pretty peeved pet right now.
Not only has she dressed him up in this ridiculous outfit but she also insists on calling him her Bonnie Prince Charlie, after some old Scottish dude!
And another of hero's pet peeves is Dora's smoking, no matter how you dress that up it's still a disgusting health hazard.
I should know I only quit three years ago.
And if I can quit then anybody can.

Excellent development of your 50s style, this works really well. Also a great take on the theme... coordinating pets is a step too far, poor Hero!
