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.
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.
"What's better than a beautifully illustrated dog portrait? A curated collection of one thousand dog portraits, that's what! 1,000 Dog Portraits: From the People Who Love Them is a compilation of illustrations, drawings, paintings, and collages by dog-obsessed artists around the globe." - DogMilk.com

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.
