From sheepdogs to wolves to coyotes, dogs are inspirational in their energy and passion for nature and all life has to offer. Join us in appreciation of our furry canine friends with this cuddly deviant BARK tee!
We love creatures of all shapes and sizes. I grew up with dogs and have always loved them as friends and adventure buddies. This concept started out as sketches in my black book, and I worked out many styles.
During this process, I went to a drawing party, and there was a fun little canine there named Dexter. I considered him for the piece, along with some other dog friends of the same breed. Using brush pens, china crayons, and thick markers, I ended up with a multi-media piece that I think truly captures this little guy’s attitude.
Sure, it was a fun divergence from the main concept, but it was entertaining to draw!
Ever since we launched deviantART muro, I’ve wanted to draw this kind of dog on another graphic. He’s pretty animated, but not quite the graphic quality I was thinking would be appropriate for apparel. Big ups to Sancho, Ernie, and Dexter for being models for these drawings!
