Dogs Rule! A Collaborative Project



I feel very honored to have been included in a wonderful artist collaboration called Dogs Rule.
Jill Beninto put together a wonderful project and invited 12 other artists to each make 14 book pages with the theme of Dogs Rule to create 14 Fat Books to be bound and received by each artist and a 14th book to be auctioned off on Ebay on November 15th to raise money for Bernie Berlin's A Place to Bark to raise money for her amazing shelter that she runs for all breeds of dogs in TN. Jill also contacted The Bark Magazine and they are going to run a spread on our project in the September 2008 issue!

Each book is slightly different than the next. Many of my pages feature PUGS!
Here are just a few of the wonderful pages that you could own too if you would like to bid on the very special 14th book.
