Finalmente santo de casa fez milagre! Recebi a encomenda para uma mensagem de Natal e feliz ano novo para uns colegue do Henricão, meu digníssimo, bem personalizada! Com nosso desenho: eu, ele e Chaplin. Quem encomendou? Henricão, claro. Encomendou e não pagou…. humpft. Mas ok, aceito pagamento em macarrão – como já disse uma amiga. Favor me levar pra jantar em um lugar bem fancy, dear.
Finally, I’ve done some art for my household! I got this custom order for a Christmas and Happy New Year’s art for Henry’s pals – Henry is my chosen one – with our own illustration: Henry, me and our border collie Chaplin. Who ordered? Henry, big surprise. Ordered however has NOT paid… humpft. But ok, I can accept payment through noodles’ visa, as once said a friend of mine. Pls take me out to dinner in a fancy place, dear.
Já li em algum lugar que os cães inventaram o amor incondicional – e esse statement é mucho fofo, vai! Quis ilustrar um momento bem comum às pessoas que têm um friend peludo: o beijinho no nariz! No focinho, digo.
Pelo menos pra mim, o focinho de border é irresistível! Tipo, sorvete de baunilha com brownie. E o do Chaplin é pintadinho, owwn. Derreto mesmo!
I’ve read somewhere that dogs had invented the unconditional love – and I find that statement one of the cutest ever! I wanted then to illustrate a very regular moment for those who own a furry loving friend: the kiss on the nose.
At least, in my opinion, the border’s muzzle is irresistible! Like vanilla ice cream and brownie. And Chaplin’s nose is “sprinkled”, owwwn. I really melt about it!
Oops, long time since I’ve posted here! Sorry guys. I was working on other pieces of illustration – I’ll probably post them here after they’re delivered to their customers!
This beautiful girl is Mirella and her border collie Johnny! She lives in the city of São Paulo but whenever she visits her grandma in the country, she takes Johnny with her! (have you noted the little vintage gate? It’s her grandma’s! ;)
“So he can stretch his legs an run a little!” as she told me then.
I had fun working on this custom portrait, Mirella told me she will hang on her study. Nice ;)
After starting The Border Collie Project, I couldn’t be left out! I would be a little jealous… So I drew a slightly better version of us! :)
Chaplin is my border collie – as I told you before, I just love the movies, and I found the perfect name for him. I thought it would be pretty funny to have a black-and-white-almost-silent dog named Chaplin. Yes, my Chaplin is almost silent… he doen’t bark at all. And he is also a gentleman. Suits him perfectly.
Anyway, we are the whole time together as I bring him to work on a daily basis. I work in a design & stationery shop, and he follows me since the company was taking its first baby steps. (as well as Chaplin! So cute!). It is very uncommon here in Brazil to bring a dog along with you to the office, but I’ve always been fond of breaking some little rules. Hehe.
As for myself, you’ll find me always wearing a colorful skirt and a linen shirt. Of course, I don’t look this serene, I am usually running around to get all things (illustrations, jobs, chores, everything!) done in time, and hoping to get home as soon as possible to watch some netflix before the day ends.
