“Please please please can you throw my ball?”

This is my second ever drawing of the BoogieMonster with his classic wide-eyed pouty lip look. Boogie can sit looking at you like this for up to 30 minutes. (Likewise when you are eating dinner). Before you know it, you are throwing the tennis ball AGAIN for the 100th time… (or giving him a small piece of meat). I know I know. I am so weak.

Over the months I have received mail from various random people on Flickr or friends-of-friends who have seen my sketches of  boston terriers (JazzyRocky, Boogie..), who have asked me to draw their dog and want to know how much I charge.

It’s hard for me to charge for dog drawings because even though I draw for a living, drawing Boogie (or my foster BT) is sort of like a “hobby” for me, separate from my main “job” of drawing/designing on animation projects. So, instead of  money, I have been accepting gifts….

I had a little brainwave this morning:

From now on,  I will draw YOUR DOG in exchange for a donation from you to www.bostonbuddies.com. I draw on the computer so you will receive a large high-resolution digital image, followed by a  8 x 10 printout  if you so desire.

I like this arrangement… Instead of doing Cafepress tshirts or merch. this is a more personalized transaction and I get to *meet* your doggie and you receive a one of a kind special illustration of your dog. And we are both contributing to a good cause and helping bostons in need! =)

What do you all think?
