I own a pet shop where I sell mostly supplies for dogs. I've been open for 4 years now & just love all things dog! This drawing will be added to a few others that I have to create a collection of "dog jokes" for me to sell in my store as well as sell to other retailers.
My target audience - anyone who "gets" dogs, that understands the bond that is created between a dog & the human lucky enough to be a dog's "person".
I'm looking for a drawing of a bed with a person on either side sleeping with a dog in the middle between them. The dog is sleeping peacefully without a care in the world. The people are asleep but starting to fall out of the bed. The title is Dog Bed.
2 people, 1 dog & a bed
no exaggerated facial expressions
not a lot of detail
understated, let the meaning come through the drawing
no Disney like cartoons
the title is Dog Bed NOT Sniff Dawg
I like Barsotti's style (the Pup) & the simpleness of the Far Side
Black & white is fine
ultimately I need a drawing that can be on paper, baseball hats, mugs etc
I've attached some pictures of my dog sleeping- he sleeps with total abandon wherever he is, that is the feeling I want to get across- in the drawing the dog just happens to be in the owners bed
