Call for Entries: DawgArt ABC Book
Omg, everyone, I'm so excited about my next project! It's going to be an ABC ebook with all my favorite breeds in order. I know there are lots of breeds that will be left out, but I already have my list, so instead of suggesting breeds, help me compile a library of reference photos I can use to make the paintings.
I will be choosing my favorite photos for reference, so make them good. I am really inspired by interesting perspectives, goofy expressions, amazing details; get creative.
**Important: In order for me to use the photos you send, they will need to belong to you. They will need to be photos of your dog, or photos that you took. If they are photos of your dog that another photographer took, you will need to get permission from the photographer to use them for this project before you send them to me. And remember, I'm choosing my favorites, so submission is no guarantee of inclusion.**
Send photos to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line: ABC Book Submission.
Here are the breeds I need:
A - Afghan Hound, Australian Shepherd
B - Basset Hound, Beagle, Boston Terrier, Boxer
C - Chinese Crested
D - Dachshund, Dalmatian (make these photos in profile, I'm going to have them looking at each other)
E - English Bulldog
F - French Bulldog
G - Greyhound
H - Husky
I - Irish Terrier, Irish Wolfhound
J - Jack Russell Terrier
K - Keeshond
L - Labrador
M - Mastiff, Mutt
N - Newfoundland
O - Otterhound
P - Pit Bull, Pug
Q - Queens Beagle
R - Rottweiler
S - Schnauzer, Shar pei
T - Tibetan Mastiff
U - Utonagan
V - Vizsla
W - Weimaraner, Welsh Corgi, Westie
X - Xolo
Z - Zuchon (That's a Shih-Tzu/Bichon Frise cross)
Some of the letters in the book will have multiple breeds on the page, some of them I haven't decided between the possibilities yet. My choices might depend on what photos I get.
If you have these breeds, or photos of these breeds, and want to participate, get to work on awesome photos! If your friends have these breeds, share share share. I think I'm going to make a Kickstarter project out of this. I'm so excited!
