Pencil Pet Portraits
Many animal lovers commission pencil portraiture for themselves after losing their furry friend, but more and more these drawings are being requested and given as gifts at Christmas, for birthdays, and even anniversaries! This past holiday season was one of the busiest I can remember and the feedback I received from my clients and their families really warms my heart, because they told me how special these drawings were to the recipients … and some were even brought to tears.
This is the highest praise an illustrator can achieve! A pencil drawing can be as unique as fingerprints or the subject being drawn … no two are identical. When I’m told a client is emotionally moved by what has been created specifically for them, this only reinforces why I love my work and strive daily to maintain the quality of each pencil rendering!
