Just finished this customer request for a 3 inch tall poodle…my smallest yet! I’ve made many poodles which have measured from 5 to 9 inches tall, but this is the smallest I’ve ever gone…
Pictured here (below) is the little poodle next to a more normal sized poodle…
One might think that smaller is easier and takes less time…but I don’t actually find this to be true, myself.
Well, hope all is well out there with everyone. Keep warm and stay safe!
Hello All! Just wanted to share a custom request I received from a customer for Doodles, the dog who was friends with Kewpie.
For those of you who aren’t familiar, the Kewpie was a creation by artist Rose O’Neill in 1909. It was a baby-like, cupid-like elf that started as a cartoon but grew in popularity as a doll.
Here is the cartoon I used for inspiration:
There were other renditions of Doodles, which was actually a French Bulldog, and here’s some other images:
So as you can see, Doodles can look a little different from time to time, but generally he’s CUTE!
So here’s my version of Doodles the Dog:
Old photographs fascinate me. I think many people would agree they are so cool to look at….think about the people, what they wore, what their “story” was.
Over the years I’ve accumulated many in my countless visits to garage sales, thrift stores, and flea markets. Without even trying I’ve accumulated quite a collection over the years.
Here’s one I always gaze at as I occasionally flip through them all.
They were brothers, probably….
