May 2010: I intend to continue to profile contemporary artists once or twice a week. On the other days, I intend to draw… whatever I darn well feel like, including turquoise blue hippo babies!

So far whatever I felt like has turned out to be animals but I’m going to resist the temptation to say that that’s what I’m going to do for the rest of the month, and just see what happens.

I’ve been wanting to draw/paint this great Boston Terrier for a long time, so I’m happy to be getting to it!

I don’t really know if Gordon is most-painted, but I know PippaAndPom does alot of ATC trades so I suspect alot of her trade partners have made images of Gordon.

Some photos and PippaAndPom’s paintings of Gordon here:

PippaAndPom makes fantastic portraits and animal art – inventive, colorful, expressive and not cute. Here’s her full photostream:

Tonight I felt like drawing somebody’s dogs. But as I didn’t know if I had permission to work from their photos, I settled on this character.
