Custom Dog Illustration

I had a friend ask me to create a custom illustration for a condolence card. The lab, Lexi, passed away last week. I like to think my sweet pets will be in a beautiful place enjoying all the things they love when they are no longer with me. These are always tough but I hope it brings a warm smile to their sad heart.

Drawing black animals is challenging for me. But I think this ended up working.

Oh my sister would love this! Her black lab passed away a few weeks ago. Someone poisoned it with anti freeze! Can you believe it? 5 dogs in the neighborhood died within a week. I love what you did with the card. It's beautiful!

Thanks, Loni!

Oh, I am so sorry to hear that. That is awful. I don't understand people some times - they just disgust me in how they treat animals and other people.

Actually this poor lab was killed by two Pitbulls. I don't know the details but it just crushed my heart to hear.
