IF: Crash 1


I thought this word was challenging! I thought of several things, so here are the 2 I narrowed it down to.

The first one is about The 10th Annual Snooty-Sniffers Convention held each year( in my own mind.) Only the elite purebred dogs are allowed in the clubhouse to schmooze and booze, but Walter, a good ol' mutt from the 'hood, had enough of this snobbery and decided to crash this phony baloney gathering. He grabbed a bottle of whatever beer was on sale and hit the bar with attitude. What really made him mad was no one seemed to notice him. I'm sure he has something up his furry sleeve though, and he'll make sure they take notice soon...real soon!
(Also, please click on Crash 2 (to the left) and let me know which one you like!!)

  1. Heh heh. Way to crash a party--my kinda pooch. Great entry! I'd give you feedback on 'crash 2" but for some reason can't seem to get to it from your link. Anyhow, I'm sure I'll see it somewhere. have a great weekend!

  3. Ha, ha! I really like the expressions of the snooters and the delicate line work. Two thumbs up for the mutt!!

  4. I like crash 1 better- less depressing- though I'm curious how the neighbor's cat let you take its snack out of its mouth!

  5. Well I like them both. Crash 1 is so clever and funny. The characters really come to life. Crash 2 is very touching. You're so kind to the little birds.

  6. Very funny - are the "wine-folks" some snobbs? Or is he just too small? I feel with him - I'm to beer too (but not too small...)

    I like your no. 2 too - lovely birds in the snow - I've saved a bird once, so I know the feeling!

    I can't say, which I like best - the images are so different, but both nice.

  9. Very nice! I like Crash 1 best, probably because it made me giggle and I have a dog who would like to "crash" all the poodle parties in our street.

    P.S. I made 'Howard the Cat' for an assignment so he's pretty rare at the moment. Thanks for the comments!

  11. The snooty elites may be so absorbed in their own dazzling perfection and a bit tipsy, they just haven't gotten around to Walter yet, have a feeling they will, whether he pushes the issue or not. I'd like to see the outcome of this.
    Your work makes me want to see more. So much fun and great characters and story telling!

  12. I like your story of the mutt amongst purebreds, and the attendant illustration. I always felt the same way as the mutt whenever I went to Rotary club get togethers back in the day I had my portrait studio.

  15. Long live mutts! Our Blackie is an SPCA Heinz 57 variety, beer and pizza type of guy (though he's never had either). Great idea and follow-through for the topic. Also was quite impressed with your bird-saving skills on the post below. Wow.

    Sorry I missed you at your gallery. My biz partner will be sharing gallery space just a 1/2-block up Forest Avenue from you. His photos, another guy's glass-works. That's how we came to be in PG last week. We'll be doing some work on track lighting and flooring in the weeks to come, so I'll make sure to stop by again.
