"Some of our greatest historical and artistic treasures we place with curators in museums; others we take for walks." - Roger A. Caras, Animal Welfare Activist

1000 Dog Portraits is a compilation of quirky, fun, fanatical illustrations, paintings, collages and drawings from designers and artists around the globe. From hounds to herding dogs, and mutts to terriers, there is a diverse range of artistic renditions from naïve and abstract to traditional portraiture.

Artist and designer Robynne Raye curates this collection that is a study guide on style for the budding artist as well as a book of inspiration to the practicing professional. There's even a chapter called, "How Many Ways Can You Draw A Beagle?" showing the myriad of ways an artist can depict a single breed of dog.

So rev up your illustration muscle and be inspired by this loving tribute to man's best friend.

Review:


How Many Ways Can You Draw a Beagle?

"How Many Ways Can You Draw a Beagle?" It was this question that inspired Robynne Raye to develop this beautiful collection of 1000 Dog Portraits. At the time, Robynne and her design studio, Modern Dog, were in the midst of a copyright infringement lawsuit over dog illustrations. An attorney representing the defendants posed the question, and Robynne took it as a challenge. As any dog lover can attest, our pups are as unique and individual in art as their vibrant personalities are in real life.

1000 Dog Portraits features the stunning and varied artwork of artists from around the world. More than a demonstration on how many ways there are to draw beagles, this book is a celebration of the many different canines that we love and the art that so perfectly captures their memorable personalities.
