Modern Dog Magazine

This piece was done for Modern Dog Magazine. The article was about a lament of the short life span of dogs. I have a dog in Japan and I felt really fortunate to work on this project. Many thanks to Jennifer. It was a pleasure to work with you. More to come soon!

It's lovely!

Ah it's sad, isn't it. I find people who don't want a dog are afraid to love something

you painted the theme very beauiful. We have dogs too (and had one who died already) and it's sad to know that they won't live that long. keep up your work.

Congratulation! Another beautiful work!

It's sad that animals have shorter life span then us. I miss my cats, but they will always be living in my heart.

This is a fantastic illustration of a dog's journey to the afterlife. It makes me cry everytime I look at it and gives me comfort in knowing that my beloved dog is not alone.

I saw this image in a photo mag at the library and, coupled with a recent canine loss, just kicked me square in the head. I can't over how this image has made me feel. Thanks.
