As a freelance illustrator working with Sarasota Magazine, I was asked to create a magazine illustration focusing on the luxurious life of dogs in the city of Sarasota, FL. With this in mind, I began thinking of how dogs might relax, socialize, and party in a cosmopolitan cityscape scene. The project manager had very specific style in mind, so I began sketching and creating concepts via her direction. The entire project was completed in three days and was published in the magazine a few months later.
