Playing Dress Up!

After donating a piece of work to Hello Bully for their art show fundraiser this past weekend I felt inspired to create a illustration showing the true nature of this misunderstood breed. I already had a "dress-up" image in mind that I wanted to do and now the breed was set. It saddened me so much while doing visual research the horrible images that would pop up of these dogs - and it's no wonder they are so abused, overbred, and mistreated. My response...


Meet Petunia the Pit Bull and her little girl Patty! Like Ferdinand the Bull, Petunia would much rather play dress-up and have tea parties with her little girl, than be thrown into the ring and forced to fight. Her favorite food is a mixture of tea cakes and steak but she's not very picky. She loves to romp with Patty in the fields and try to make new friends (though she can be a bit overzealous) and napping on the plush "throne" together (or as we like to call it - the sofa)...

Look for more images of Petunia's upcoming adventures....!
