My Proposal

**Every day I will post a Quicksketch of a dog. In the future I may post longer sketches and paintings but for now... just a Dog A Day.
I will post it even if I'm not in love with it- I NEED to try and draw every day! ***Hopefully***

Sketches are all done on 18x24 newsprint with a Conte Pencil unless otherwise noted.

Lost Dog

This is Barry.

He WAS at the North County Animal Services but I believe his owners found him or he was adopted.

He was pretty cute.

Sorry about the lack of posts.
I'll be honest...
I let the Holidays overwhelm me...

But I'm Back!!

Scrappy Girl

Day 20

This is Scrappy. She's another oldie but goodie. 
She seemed like a sweet girl but I noticed she hung back and was a bit unsure 
while her kennel mate got all the attention. But She's worth a look.
She has a fun personality.

You can go check her out at 

I was missing for a few days (fell into a bit of funk & was busy).

But I'm back again!

Only issue is I'm having my computer worked on tomorrow 
and I'm not sure how long before I get it back.. 
so I may have to upload the ones I do in the next couple days.. a few days later.

So check back!

Day 19

This is Dusty.

With a sweet and cuddly personality.

I hate seeing him at the shelter because he's such a lovely old man at 15yrs.
He should live his retirement age in a lovely home where he can be appreciated!

It's the old dogs that make me the saddest and I really wish I could scoop him up and take him home with me... 

will you?

He's watchn' the world go by at the North County Animal Services.

Day 18

Not lovin' it really... Mostly because I really wanted to show this dog with a glimmering light.

He's so jowl -y! It's pretty adorable looking when he's relaxed.
His name is Stubby and he is HUGE! With a big glorious blocky head!
The photo the shelter has doesn't do his face justice. 

He relaxes when you talk to him and say his name in a buttery voice. :)

me off my game plan...

First Day of Dog A Day

Welcome to my new blog!
I am forcing myself to draw every day and came up with the idea of 
Drawing A Dog A Day!

All artists are aware of the intense Picture Block we can get after a while and we need a little motivation to make sure we draw EVERY DAY so we don't loose our trained hand.
So I've decided that since I find dogs and other animals (but mostly dogs) endlessly fascinating...
I'm going to do a quick sketch every day from now on. No matter what gets in the way... 
Work, Family, Sickness, Alien Invasion...

And I will share it even if I HATE it....

So here's the first 2 days crammed into one post.
I was starting off a bit timid I think...

But who cares! I'm drawing no matter what!
This is just to get me drawing at LEAST once a day ... and hopefully it will be more than just the one drawing.. I'm sure it will.. I tend to keep going after the first picture.
That's the whole point of doing this!
