I’ve been working on an art project for a friend over the past couple of days. I like the project so much I wanted to do a little something of my own. Below is a picture I took the day we got our second dog, Rawley (a cairn terrier, like Toto from the Wizard of Oz). While I like that the dogs are facing each other in profile, the lighting is strange, there are toys around them, and you can’t really see Rawley’s face. It’s a bit of a mess.
But, it inspired me to make a different version of it.
I started out by making this (using Adobe Illustrator, but you could use Paint or any number of free drawing programs):
Then I duplicated and reflected it so I ended up with two. Since Rawley (dark gray) was on the left in the picture I decided to keep it that way. My plan is to have 1 dog per picture frame with the frames next to one another (or maybe with some distance, like on opposite nightstands). I’ve been debating between having them outlined (option A) or not (option B), or some combination of the two.
Just to try it out, I printed out the image on the left in Option B (Rawley, no outline) and the image on the right in Option A (Baxter, no outline) using my basic printer, stuck them in frames, and voila!
P.S. If there are any Westie, Cairn or Scottie lovers out there, leave your email in the comments and I will happily send you the file so you can have your own!
