As if butter wouldn't melt ...


Here is Fudge. I had to work from photographs for this one. I took some after one of her moments of sheer madness and she needed to rest - for five minutes before the next one. She's a cross between a Poodle and a Fox Terrier - a Foodle, although, as she's tee total, I think a Perrier is more appropriate. (did you see what I did there?) I have lost count of the last warnings she's been on. It's snowing here in Lincoln, the dog has now pinched the best place in front of the fire and, although smelly, rather adorable.

Oh my gosh! I concede, your Fudge looks crazier than my Yao! I am in awe of this drawing, Steven. I enlarged it and am looking at every hair (penstroke) When I grow up I want to be you! Inspired!!

Oh gosh, Stephen. This again is SO beautiful. Really gorgeous. It has to be said that some animal portraits can be a littel, um, mawkish. This isn't. At all. It's just really beautiful

This is going to be one amazing Molskine.

She is soo cute. What a wonderful drawing of her. Being part poodle (my absolute favorite dogs) she'll be trying to outsmart you all the time and being part terrier she'll be very active. You've got your hands full but when she settles down you'll have a very loyal friend there.

Wow! This is wonderful.

Karen Blados said...

Again, the hair is just amazing!

Your comments always make my day! ;-)
And I'm glad I could help because it would have been a pity never to have seen your talent.

Cheers, Karen
