Recently I have been busy with a lot of custom work, creating hand printed pet portraits. Here are some of the animals I have been working with & the resulting prints I have made:
Penny & Fletcher are 2 rescue greyhounds. Don’t they look just adorable snuggled up on the sofa together?
Penny & Fletchers’ owner asked me to print her dogs onto a T-shirt for her & chose a chocolate brown colour paired with lovely golden yellow ink. She wanted the dogs to ‘lie’ along the bottom edge of the shirt. I have a special soft spot for brindle greyhounds since my own dog, Max, is a brindle, so I loved working with the beautiful brindle markings that this pair have!
Dinky & Bomber are another pair of rescue hounds, Dinky is pictured on the left & Bomber on the right.
Like a lot of greyhounds, Bomber likes to chase! His owner had a great idea for a caption to print along with the image of him running onto one of my hoodies – Show me the bunny!
Dinky & Bomber were also treated to some personalised treats pouches for taking on holiday with them, Bomber’s in black & Dinky’s in turquoise.
This was such a fun custom order to work on & I was delighted to hear that Dinky & Bomber & their owner were pleased with everything:
“Thanks for everything Jane, such a great person to work with. Dinky and Bomber love their treat bags, especially when the chocky buttons appear from them! We’ll be back! xx”
I’m not sure what kind of dog Gomez is, but one thing’s for sure – he’s super cute! Just look at that smile…
Custom prints of Gomez were ordered as a surprise gift for his owner, one on a tote bag & one on a doggy bandanna, both in co-ordinating bright yellow. The dog’s name was printed alongside his image.
& here’s what the buyer had to say about their purchase:
“Seriously awesome seller with a seriously awesome product. Ten days from order to my doorstep — for a custom order and halfway around the world!”
Meet Penny, pictured here basking in the sun with her owner.
Penny’s portrait was also purchased as a gift for her owner, this time printed onto one of my men’s T-shirts in a lovely olive colour. I love the way the shadows fall in this picture – it makes a striking print.
Here’s what Penny’s owner had to say about their T-shirt:
“Fast delivery. Fantastic item, Wonderful Communication. Great seller, highly recommended!“
Last but not least in the line of subjects I have printed recently is a special family dog, Pippin.
Pippin sadly passed away recently & her portrait was purchased as a special memento for her owner. I printed Pippin’s image in indigo onto a white tea towel , which the owner was going to have framed.
It’s an honour to think that someone is going to frame & hang one of my prints & I hope I did old Pippin justice. Here’s what the customer thought:
“Brilliant seller – patient, accommodating and informative. Produced a fantastic image of a very special dog. I cannot thank you enough for producing this for me!!”
At this customer’s suggestion, I have been prompted to look into the possibility of printing my designs / portraits onto stretched canvas boards, so watch this space for some experimentation!
If you would like me to work with you & your pet (which need not be a greyhound, sighthound or even a dog!) to create a custom hand printed pet portrait on anything from a tea towel to a hoodie, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or enquire via my Etsy or Folksy shop.
