Caturday Art: My Pet Portrait

Happy Caturday!




Athena's Pet Portrait


Athena's Portrait by Louisa Houchen


So, do you like my new pet portrait?

It's by this fab artist called Louisa Houchen. Mum came across her work whilst browsing the web for animal artists and instantly fell in love with Louisa's beautiful pet art.

Mum wanted an illustration of me to use as my branding logo and header and she knew she wanted something unique and original. And as you can see from my portrait, she found it.

Louisa says her art is "a modern approach to pet portraiture" and believes she has a talent for capturing pets' personalities in her own quirky style. In fact, it's this uniqueness that caught my mum's eye. 

And it's not just cats and dogs Louisa will draw. She also draws horses, pet snakes and lizards, and even stick insects! Just email a photo of your pet and she will get to work on your illustration right away. You can then choose to order beautiful bespoke products featuring your pet's portrait: super cool merchandise such as t-shirts, mugs, bags, laptop covers, mobile phone cases and so much more. 

And what's more, your illustration is free until the 22nd October 2016. You only pay for your chosen product.

As you can see, Mum chose the A4 print with the black background. Doesn't it look striking?

Disclosure: I received a free illustration of Athena and purchased the A4 print. I was not compensated financially to write this post. Full disclosure
