This past weekend I was asked by Barkbox to draw pet portraits in Manhattan Beach! It was so fun meeting everyone and to support such an awesome company! I took about 25 min for each dog and used photos because my models don’t know how to sit still very well 🙂

Barkbox just launched their first book called Dogs and their People – a collaboration of stories, anecdotes, and photos for all Dog Lovers. Check it out in the link above!
