Sunday passes at 35 Dogs Per Hour

I got featured in the StarTribune today -- the online article is the Q&A only, while the one in the paper is full of beautiful color photos -- but the fun didn't stop there.

Above and below, two favorites from the sketches I did this afternoon at Wet Paint Art Supply on Grand Ave. This was part of the annual Paws On Grand event.

There were six of us artists who donated our time and skills -- and all together we drew over 100 dogs in 3 hours. While the drawings were free, we were taking donations for Pet Project, an organization devoted to helping those who've fallen on hard times to keep and care for their animals rather than having to give them up. I don't know yet how much we raised. I do know how much I enjoyed being part of it.
