The Lazy Days of Summer - Border Collies on a picnic

Of course, I was going to call it 'Dog Days' but then I realised that no dog is his right mind would be prancing about to the fiddle music in that kind of heat, so I didn't.

Love is... a Border Collie (although love is any dog, really)

Max (the Marvel) - being an alligator

This dachshund can do anything!

Militant Mutt - he knows his rights!

More bones! More gravy! More walks! (just in case you can't read Dog)

Border Collie dog cartoon art - sorta, vaguely, kinda, after Picasso...



One of things that is so neat about ACEOs (Art Cards, Editions and Originals) is that their only restriction is size. They must always be 2.5" x 3.5" - apart from that small thing, there ARE no restrictions! They can be made from any material - glass, paper, canvas, polymer clay, pasta, dried mud, plasticine, clay, marshmallow - you name it, you can make an ACEO from it. (Although the marshmallow one might not last too long in this house...).

This is not restricted to materials - they can be created using any style and any technique - watercolors, oils, acrylics, crayons, pencil and so on and so forth.

I've just decided to have a go at cartooning - and I like it! But to start with, I'm doing them ACEO size so they don't seem like such a huge (and intimidating) venture. Below are a couple of the results of this new direction.

The first one: "But, but... I didn't do it!" is very sorta, vaguely, kinda, after Picasso...


















And the second one: "She wants a drink of water" is a scenario which is scarily familiar...

Max (the Marvel) - juggling - there's nothing quite like a dachshund, (weiner, doxie), for hidden talents. Max, however, is an exhibitionist.
