Tribute to Jacoby

Two months ago, my husband and I lost our twelve year old dog, Jacoby, to pancreatic cancer. I have to admit it has been a hard couple of months without him. My husband wrote a beautiful blog post about him and his life. Please be advised Kleenex may be needed.

I started this illustration just before we found out he was sick. So it took me awhile to finish it. I consider it a nice memorial illustration dedicated to a great lovable dog. I used my new gouache brushes to create this piece. I’ve been wanting to experiment with a looser painting style than my clean vector illustration.  

This illustration will be available in my shop very soon. I am also thinking of donating some of the profit to a local shelter in honor of Jacoby.
