Illustration Friday 'Subtract'


Joshua's hair was really starting to get him down.



It was time to take action.



Wow, looking good, feeling great!
Take one messy matted fur-ball, subtract the excess hair, and voila you're left with one superdupper dapper dog!

This is so cute! When it's time to clip my dog it's never as pretty as that, would be a bunch of scribbles...

Oh, We know both those 'looks'. I particularly adore your second sketch with the scissors. Brilliant, Janie!

I love dogs. I'm always glad when our dog goes to the hair cutter. He alway looks so small when he lost all his hair. Great illustration.

I suspect, though, that a real dog would happiest when covered in matted fur.

Cheryl said...

Wow - you illustrated the whole process (story) really well. It always pepped up our pooches to get a clip.

It's so full of energy and very well illustrated. I love the whole process and the final product. Bravo!

Yo Joshua! How's it going, bub? Always nice to see a fellow boofhead around the traps.

Have you got opposable thumbs? Can you type? I have. And I do. Like I am now.

We should get together sometime and shoot the boofhead breeze.

Great, loose line work and concept! I gotta say, I love Joshua with or without the haircut!

Thank you everybody, I was off line for the last few months and all your lovely comments made it a warm welcome back, thanks:)
Dermot, greetings from Joshua, who is getting nowhere near my laptop by the way, he's such a klutz. But he said to tell you that he digs your look!
