For this pet portrait, the client really wanted to capture the dog’s goofy personality. So we did just that!
I was contacted to create a logo for a new nonprofit organization supporting women who are struggling with infertility. The request was to have a woman sitting next to the name, something soft, feminine and peaceful, pensive, like she has a lot on her mind and to make it black and white with hints of peach/blush.
The client was very happy with the outcome of the logo, and revisions were minor. She loved the handwritten touch to the name and the stillness found in the woman.
As part of marketing materials leading up to the 16th Annual Cashmere Collection fashion show, Strategic Objectives reached out to me to create unified sketches of each designer’s gown so they could use them to promote the show on social media and in press releases.
As requested by Cashmere, we incorporated the specific shade of breast cancer awareness pink in the illustrations and highlighted the shape and form of the garments using black and white.
The total turnaround time of the project was about three weeks, and the process was so smooth thanks to the incredible team at SO.

Over the years I have done several digital pet portraits, but something about painting them feels so much more special to me. I quite like the texture I’m able to obtain in the fur and the roughness which contributes to the movement and shadowing in the fur. This piece was created to be given as a gift to someone who loves their cat “Lady” very much.
