Pugs Take to the Air!

Our new young pug, Don Diego, was adopted from Enchanted Pugs in Northern California. They commissioned me to immortalize Diego, his half brother Mater, and another family member Trinket as barnstormers.  Mater is the pilot (they apparently sit behind the passenger in biplanes - who knew?), Diego is the slightly worried-looking passenger in front, and Trinket stars as the daredevil lady wing walker!  I love doing "storybook" illustrations (as well as painting pugs!) so this was a very fun project for me.  Painted in gouache on rag paper, it now hangs in the Enchanted Pugs gallery...

  1. I love this. My husband has a yellow bi-plane and we have four pugs so I really think this is awesome.
