Someone once said “every dog has a story“, and for this project the story is one of coming together. One of the big reasons my “Animal Behaviour” series exists is some four years ago, I was fortune enough to become companion to my dog, Honey. She, not only became a great friend and devoted head licker, but she also became the inspiration that brought life to the idea of drawing animals could have some meaning and fun!
Recently I also had a set of strange connections occur that brought me to this project. Dogs are always on my mind, and a Facebook friend of mine (Elke Vogelsang) blew me away when we connected with her photography. Especially the images that have thrown her into the spotlight, the images of her three adorable dogs; Noodles, Ioli and Scout. You know the ones, you must have seen them. Anyway, I look attentively for a new snap of Elke and one or all of her dogs, and get amused with the character, expression and passion in the aspects of the work, and fun!
