I got a great response from all the pictures I took at the Pup Casso shoot a few weeks back at Doggie Styles. Usually from these events I get drawn to one image of a dog that inspires me to create new art. In this particular case it was Wrinkles the pug. In the shot below you see Wrinkles on a bare floor with leash trailing out of frame and an earnest expression in his eyes. I wanted to take it a step forward, extend the leash out and play on all the negative space around him.
In the end Wrinkles looked more graphic and the leash almost makes him look like he’s tethered in space.
My final concept was to put this on a bag and make full use of the big square space on the tote. Let’s hope Wrinkles approves.
