See My Doggies at Bark Place in South End

The South End neighborhood of Boston is home to many, many dogs of all kinds and breeds. I love seeing them peppered throughout the sidewalks and parks as I walk to a nearby restaurant or cafe. There are lots of businesses here that cater to that atmosphere, like Bark Place at the corner of Mass. Ave and Washington St. The folks there were kind enough to let me showcase ALL of my prints above their counter. So if you feel like having a doggie day, take him or her with you to Bark Place, where you can give them a bath, buy them an awesome treat, and peruse through unique canine related artwork.

A Healthy Addition to the Foodie Dogs

Whole grains have been an important part of my diet for years now, and they definitely help me to look awesome, just like Wheaten Terriers look awesome. What a healthy breed. This magnificent beast will be available soon in my Etsy store. In other news, I am now located in the eclectic South End neighborhood of Boston. Many dog lovers here, and many dogs. Hoping to support every breed I see with a food match-up. Challenge accepted.

My Build Your Own Bento box series and I will be at ArtBeat in Davis Square on Saturday from 11 - 5. This is particularly special to me, because I live in Davis Square, so it's as local as you can get! I went to ArtBeat last year when I first moved here and was very impressed. If you want something great to do this weekend, check it out!

Foodie Dogs at Union Made Summer Fair!

A LOT has happened since I blogged last. The biggest event is that I am now in Boston, Massachusetts. The area here is perfect for arts and craft shows, just like Union Made Summer Fair in Union Square in Somerville this Sunday. The dogs will be there, including the newest addition, Boston Cream Pie Terrier!

Now that I'm settled up here in the north, I hope to add more dogs and take them to more shows. Be on the lookout here for info, and stop by Union Made this Sunday to support not only Loopy art, but all the great vendors.

There's a Pattern Forming

Hey there. A while back this article about making patterns was brought to my attention: Welcome Julia and How to Make a Repeat Pattern. Ever since then, I had been wanting an excuse to try it out. To my luck, recently had a pattern contest, so I considered that my chance. I chose sea creatures for my subject because, well, I love sea creatures, but also I think they work well since their positions are so free flowing underwater. It's not too far of a stretch to have them freely swimming all over a shirt. Here is the submission at Threadless: Sea Pattern. And here are some images of the steps I took:

Pencil sketch of first group.

Cut it in half. Separate. Then cut it in half the other way. Separate again.

Pencil sketch of second group. Fill in the blank areas.

Ink the first group in Photoshop.

Ink the second group in Photoshop.

Put it together.

Repeat it all over the shirt.

 Like it? I'd love it if you gave it a good score and maybe a comment over at Threadless here: Sea Pattern

Thanks for stopping by!
