Artist creates pet portraits inspired by their personality

I've been making portraits of pets that showcase their personalities. Here are a few I've been working on lately. You can see more and read what their owners share about them here. Keep rockin', everybody.

CB

Brady

"He loves to wear Birthday Party hats, his collar and necktie, and reindeer antlers at Christmas time. We’ve been told by trainers that he’s manipulative."

Rogue

"Rogue is really happy she pulls her top lip up to expose her teeth, mimicking a human smile."

Lobo

"He’s very energetic, much to our dismay He’s somewhat of a Houdini, from what I’ve been told, escaping from his playpen by figuring out how to unzip it."

Cubbie

"He loves water and mud and loves snow even more. We live in Ohio and when the wind chill is -20 he won't come inside."

Wrigley

" He NEVER holds still and he is crazy. Very clingy and high energy. He won't really hunt but he will do anything for a tennis ball! "

Smiles

"I have loved many cats in my life but Smiles completely changed my life and my whole being." RIP, Smiles.


Kato

"He thinks he is a puppy."

Frannie

"Frannie loves snuggling in bed with us and likes to be covered with multiple blankets...she hates being cold. Frannie is a really fast runner and chases rabbits in the yard, but has never hurt one. She has cornered them and then just sat and stared at them."

Tony vs The Bunny Wabbit

This is Littlefoot, cute isn't he? Don't be fooled!

He is a very dangerous rabbit. This is what happened last night.

Littlefoot's favorite treat is raisins, however being good pet owners we try not to give him to many.

My husband(Tony) and I were sitting on the sofa(he was in the recliner seat leaned back), after I had given the bun his evening raisins he proceeded to beg for more. My dear husband thinking he was funny decided to eat a couple of the raisins. Big mistake. As he pops the raisins into his mouth the bun jumps up and in an attempt to grab the raisins bites Tony on the lip. Tony pushes Littlefoot away and tells him 'No more raisins.'

The bun jumps back on to Tony's chest and proceeds to pee all over him. Of course this results in him jumping up cursing and fussing. I being the b*tch I am laugh. You would think the story ends there, but oh no.

After Tony cleans himself up, and settles back into the living room, he tells the cute little bunny that if he pees on him again there will be no more raisins period. (Of course this is an idle threat as A. Rabbits don't know what your saying and B. I would still give him raisins)

Tony decides the best way to show the rabbit his dominence and thus discourage peeing, is to eat more of the raisins.

The bun gives him a dirty look when he fails to share his raisin bounty. Jumps into Tonys lap and bites his testicle through his lounge shorts.

I nearly died laughing.

TLDR: My husband got his ass handed to him by a four pound bunny rabbit.
