Quick Dog Pet Portrait

This little pug drawing was done as a sample for a future business partnership with Posh Pet Parties. I will keep you posted as we progress with our business plans. I have great hopes that that our idea will take off so that I can spend all my time creating pet portraits and someone else can work at promoting them. Marketing creates such a frustration level for me that I am looking at as many creative solutions as possible. Like most other artists, I just want to make art and leave the business stuff to the business people. That is why most artists starve. They just don't want to do the business end that will afford them the ability to be artists.

You can click here to visit the site of my friend and fellow artist Carl B. Johnson. There you can see photos from the Phantom Gallery. His tone is very "frank so be warned! His lady Liz Nicklus is also an awesome artist and you can see her site here. I feel so blessed to have met them and call them friends. You will be hearing more about them I'm sure in the future.

I also want to send a big "CONGRATULATIONS" out to my friend and food policeman, Dave Pulcinella, for his big win at a national level body building competion. If you want to know how to eat properly and get in shape, Dave is the person to go see. I'm wearing the same size I did when I was 20 (not so long ago...ha) because of his help. This guy is the ultimate pro. Way to go Dave!

Finally a quick "GOOD LUCK" to Vicki Nixon for this weekend's pro body building event in Atlantic City. I'll be there cheering for my dear friend and bun buster. Go get 'em tiger!

Next posting I will show you the final image of Bud.

Have a great weekend everyone and Happy New Year to my fellow Jews!

I knew Jen wouldn't be able to resist commenting on a pug drawing :-)

Good luck with the business - marketing is always the hard part - but your work is definitely beautiful. I bet there is a market out there for it :-)
