Reef Monogram

I wouldn’t really call this a monogram as much as a complex, multi-layered reef scene with two names incorporated into the piece as an easter egg. It was extremely time-consuming, but worth it in the end. I think it is whimsical and unique and beyond that, my client loved it!

Note: The photos here are not the true final photos. I continued defining the names that are hidden in the body of the fish after this series was taken and I was too tired to rephotograph the entire thing, LOL.

Dillon’s Portrait

Dillon was the first cat I’ve made using my *new* portrait techniques. I say *new* as in since this Spring when I created Charlie the GSD. Dillon came out FANTASTIC. I couldn’t have asked for a better result.

This is the final photo of him, but for Patrons I have the progression photos available.

Scrollwork Cats Out of Retirement

I got two orders for my Original Scrollwork Cats this summer and completed the first of them the last week of August. It was a cute, solid gray single cat. I have another triple cat piece to do next weekend, but that’ll be on next month’s update post.
