From the Publisher

How Many Ways Can You Draw a Beagle?

'How Many Ways Can You Draw a Beagle?' It was this question that inspired Robynne Raye to develop this beautiful collection of 1000 Dog Portraits. At the time, Robynne and her design studio, Modern Dog, were in the midst of a copyright infringement lawsuit over dog illustrations. An attorney representing the defendants posed the question, and Robynne took it as a challenge. As any dog lover can attest, our pups are as unique and individual in art as their vibrant personalities are in real life.

'Beagle' by Mark Kaufman
'Charlie' by Matt Lu
'Toby' by Sarah Thornton
'Ponce de Leon, Chihuahua' by Lisa Hildebrant
'Scruffy the Wonderdog' by Debbie Millman
'Archie & Astro' by Brandis Sarich

1000 Dog Portraits features the stunning and varied artwork of artists from around the world. More than a demonstration on how many ways there are to draw beagles, this book is a celebration of the many different canines that we love and the art that so perfectly captures their memorable personalities.

This is a gem by the fabulous Robynne Raye. I bought three...one for myself and two as gifts!
I'll probably end up buying more:)

This book is an ambitious and highly entertaining effort, deftly curated and attractively designed. Love the format and layout, which lends itself equally to be both a coffee table book and inspirational resource. The wide array of artistic styles reflects the unique and and endearing qualities of each dog represented. I'm no book critic, but I appreciate great art and know good design. I highly recommend this book for yourself or as a gift. Or both!

This book awesome! It's like CRACK for serious dog-addict and dog-art-lovers. When I first opened the book, my intention was to first selfishly sift through the book just to see how many of my own submitted dog portraits were chosen for inclusion in the book. However, as my eyes began to consume page after page of amazing art, I had to go through it multiple times because I KEPT getting distracted (and floored) by all the wonderful dog portraits!

Great stuff by Robynne Raye! A wonderful compilation of portraiture featuring artists from all over the country. These works vary from cartoon depictions to serious works of high art. Love the way Robynne has compiled this book - Buy two - one to keep and one to pass on.

I had no idea ... that a book of dog portraits could be so incredibly joyful, moving, funny and, yes, gripping. As I looked through the book, I found that as other things to do called me, I kept thinking "just one more page, and then I'll put it down ..." Page after page.

What makes these portraits so deeply compelling is that they are of real dogs, by their owners. Some people can really draw and paint, others try their best; all capture the love of a dog: of one specific dog in someone's life that represents so much more. This is the antithesis of the anonymous, cutesy dog-kitsch pumped out on mass-produced schlock. These are your dog, and my dog and simply dog love.

To call it a coffee-table book, or an illustration book is underselling it. It's a book to return to over and over, for the experience of the thing. I simply cannot imagine a dog-lover not loving this book.

Great coffee table book. I was thrilled to make the purchase as one of our local artists in Huntsville, AL has 7 photos of her pet watercolors on display in the book.
I love it. Beautiful Art Work !
