Mug Shot

While I don’t have a Pug myself, my niece has three perfect models to chose from. I would like to start adding some different breeds to my yearly Christmas cards besides my traditional Corgi.

Thought that a Pug card might be fun. As usual, I have way too many ideas some sketched out and some just in the thought process were you think that you will remember them. For me it is best to sketch it out, no matter how rough just to have a record of an idea. A month down the road having that sketch will come in handy. I have a bunch of small 5" x 7" sketch books, that I use around the house, one on my drawing table, and one in my work tote bag. I constantly refer to them.

Mug Shot is a pastel painting done on Sennelier La carte sanded paper,
and came from a sketch I did of him a while ago napping on a comforter. I loved the pose with the paw behind his head. Here's how we use Mug Shot in our 100 year archival Giclee prints.
