The Naming

University project, self initiated book brief, poem found online, with a focus on the names dogs are given, versus what dogs would  be preferred to be called? 

Experimenting with ink, and cut out card templates creating illustrations with crisp edges, with a simple chinagraph black line for detail.

below is random pages from book and sketchbook work.

give me something strong,

give me something powerful,

give me something noble,

give me something memorable.

give me something,

to carry through all my years

with back straight and chin held high

but then you ask your three year old daughter,

"why don't you name the new puppy?" 

and I'm so screwed that i could cry
