Illustration Friday: Intention

This week I have a cook with good intentions and a butter-stealing dog with bad ones. I happen to have a butter-stealing, counter-surfing, bad-intentions dog. Oddly, his favorite thing to steal is an SOS pad–he eats all the blue soap and thankfully(?) leaves behind the steel wool. But butter is definitely #2 on his list.
I decided to go all digital this week so my vector line work doesn’t get too rusty. The super-cool countertop pattern is not mine, but Formica’s (recently discontinued “Boomerang” laminate in aqua–how can they ax such a fun pattern?).

  1. Eeek, he eats the SOS pad? Perhaps that’s why he is looking a little wild-eyed? Either way, he is darn cute. And I recognize that counter top pattern, but I can’t recall where I saw it.

  2. My dog is just same! But he is very small, so fortunately, he doesn’t get into too much trouble.

    Wonderful illo – great expressions!!

  3. Great expressions! I remember that formica pattern from countless counters in my past. Also had a dog with a penchant for eating roughage – his preference was for used sandpaper. Looks like your dog is just waiting for you to lean a little bit closer to the book…

  6. Great illustration! Love the look of determination on your cook, & eagerness on the dog! The patterns are a nice touch!!

  7. I have your blog bookmarked now…I have always thought your writing was as wonderful as your drawing, now I can read more of it!
