Recently, my friend Susan's kitten was hit by a car and had to have a leg amputated. To cheer her up, I created a little piece of art of sweet Franklin.
Susan loved it so much that she asked me to do another piece featuring Franklin's brother, Gerald.
Since then, five of Susan's friends have contacted me asking if I'll do something similar for their pets. If I've learned anything in the past year, it's to seize any opportunity that comes my way, so it looks like I'll be commissioning my first official artwork in the next few weeks! Who knows where that will lead? I can't wait to find out!
