After illustrating the Dogbook app, Monika Melnychuk was asked by Geoffrey Roche, of Poolhouse Enterprises, to dress up the dogs for the 'howlidays'! Monika had tons of fun doing the illustrations (cards designed by Poolhouse). To check out the poodle sporting a string of holiday bling to the mischievous gift ripping duo, and the adorable Chiuaua aka"Rudolph's brother from another mother", click here to get to visit the Dogbook Facebook page (and while you're there go ahead and send a free e-card to your favorite 'pet'!).
Monika says, "I have been a dog geek forever. When I was a teenager I drew x-mas and birthday cards with dogs. Then I worked dogs into any assignment I could. For example in first year illustration we had to design a shopping bag and mine of course, was all dogs. Before I became an illustrator I tried being a dog portrait artist. Wow, I am a nerd, but I just love dogs!" Fast forward... Geoffrey Roche, partner at Poolhouse, saw some of Monika's dog drawings and he had to have her illustrate the landing page for the new Dogbook iPhone App. Can you spot *your* dog? If you're looking to connect with like minded doggie lovers get the free app here. Also below, see a recent piece on the theme, created for surface design applications.
We think it would make a cool wallpaper or fabric for your favorite dog house.
Monika and her dog Boogaloo share a breathtaking moment in their beautiful world.
