Puppy Dog Eyes

Last week brought a very exciting delivery; seeing the culmination of a couple of month’s hard work – my new card range arrived hot off the presses of my local printer!

This latest range, which I’ve affectionately entitled the ‘Puppy Dog Eyes’ Collection, features the adorable faces of four of my brand new dog designs:

Baxter the Border Terrier



Geoffrey the Schnauzer


Peggy Sue the Pug


And Teddie the Dachshund


Each pooch began its life as a hand drawing, inspired by my love of dogs, and their quirky, lovable personalities. We have Baxter, the grumpy little Border Terrier; Geoffrey the quizzical (dare I say disapproving) Schnauzer; Peggy Sue the permanently confused Pug; and ‘Captain Needy Pants, aka Teddie the Dachshund!

Each drawing went through many stages before being ready to be used as artwork for each of the four card designs. Each began as small pencil sketches, which evolved into large ink drawings; these were then scanned, allowing me to digitally refine each design, using Photoshop and Illustrator, to create bold, crisp lines, and a striking graphic style.

I hope I’ve managed to capture just some of the character that makes these dogs so well loved!

My ‘Puppy Dog Eyes’ cards, plus many more doggy designs, can be found over on my Etsy shop, Wrapped By Alice.
