Creative Tuesdays: Scottie Love


This round of Creative Tuesdays was to simply choose our favorite CT contribution from this year and then share as to why it was.  I chose the "Holiday message" theme where I had these three adorable Scotties, playing with Christmas lights and bunting.  It really couldn't be more fitting for myself and my life with Mr. Toast.  We both love tea, bunting, Christmas - and the little guy shown above. 

For those of you who know me,  Scottish Terriers often pop in and out of my illustration work and is inspired by the one and only (above), Brendel Joseph - our incredibly precious, loving and playful Scottie.  This little doggie has been through thick and thin with me.  He first entered my life shortly after my cancer surgery back in 2006 and it was then I called him my miracle puppy - and that he is!  This little guy is at your side when you're down or feeling sickly, shoving his head under your chin to get as close to you as he can.  He's also a ball lover, leaf chaser and the best snuggler in the world.  Hee

Happy Christmas, everyone!  May peace and love fill your world this holiday season. :)

  2. This is the cutest!! Yay for animals popping in and out of one's illustrations ^_^ I love that you post your doggie pictures, and that he inspires so much adorable art from you. He's a beautiful pup indeed! He should at some point star in a children's book of yours. Best wishes for you and Mister Toast and your Families and Scotty! <3, Donna

  3. this is one of my favorites too, although I do like the way you draw animals, you've always make them way cuter than they normal are.

    have a great day.
