Kewpie Had a Little French Bulldog for a Friend

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:IMG_4803
