Why Dotty Dog made an important business tweak

It’s a pretty well-known fact that here at Dotty Dog we love dogs! We love walking dogs, talking dogs and drawing dogs but... much as I love drawing and painting commissioned portraits for like-minded dog lovers it’s by no means a quick process (and it shouldn’t be either!)

Seeing the joy that a Dotty portrait brings is worth its weight in gold. I love the whole process of creating a commissioned portrait, from beginning to end, from receiving the dog photographs to framing and wrapping the final painting.

But due to the time constraints involved in producing an individual portrait I was left unable to create new card illustrations to share with all you dog lovers and your dog loving friends and family!

So, to share the Dotty Dog love with more people I made the difficult, but important decision to close my commissions book at the beginning of 2020.

This decision means I have freed up time to work with other small local businesses on designing new pins whilst producing new dog illustrations for greeting cards, prints and notebooks.

By beginning this new Dotty chapter my days are now filled with creating dog illustrations to portray just how comical dogs are and to hopefully produce greeting cards that make you and your friends smile in the process.

I’d like to thank everyone who has commissioned a Dotty portrait, I have loved creating each and every one!
