I love hats. I used to have a huge collection of them. When I moved countries, I gave them away to loved ones.
Now I am thinking of starting a new collection – but this time as illustrations on my beloved animals. What’s not to love about a furry cutie in a beret, fedora or other headgear? A hat gives that punch of personality to an already adorable creature.
My daily entries into my Sketchbook Journal are of our pets looking dapper in hats. Monty has yet to choose his fave to “impress” the birds, but Diane the long-haired cat looks all Frenchy in her red beret, while Tammy the corgi steps out in a straw fedora.
I used uni-ball eye fine pen and Pilot drawing pen 02 for the main drawings and coloured them in using Derwent water soluble pencils (Monty and Tammy) and Reeves watercolour paint (for Diane).
Now, what hat would your pet prefer? Care to share?
