Delving into the mind of one of those weird artist people

More dog paintings!

Posted by eyeofthehurricane99 on April 2, 2009

So, I showed you some art in progress of different answers to “What do you wanna be when you grow up?” starting here…

And then I showed you a painting or two of this dog that I was commisioned to make here…

Now, I’m mashing them together!

This is something I’m planning to just GIVE to the nice lady who commissioned the two paintings of Zebo, as a token of my appreciation.

(Hopefully, she’s not reading this- oops!)

She’s been very generous in her patronage of my work, so what the heck, right?

The final will just be a little 11 x 14 watercolor or something simple like that.

Anyways, somehow several things converged in my mind to create this image.

First, I was joking when she picked up her painting that he’s captain Zebo, super Zebo, inspector Zebo, etc.

I thought, hmm, dog of a thousand disguises.

I believe I was also thinking of that bad movie with Val Kilmer where he’s a master of disguise (and definitely thinking of Fletch with Chevy Chase).

Also, somehow I keep following web links this week to funny pictures of animals dressed like people.

I’m sorry- but they’re just funny! Look it up- you’ll agree…

Anyway, so I came up with this.

Doctor Zebo. C’mon, if Doogie Howser can do it…

Inspector Zebo. Makes “Hounds of the Baskerville” take on a whole new meaning, eh? And I love the pipe.

Quarterback Zebo. Somehow, he’s on the wrong end of the ‘fetch’ equation.

Rockstar Zebo! Sadly, I own that guitar he’s holding. Not the mullet, thankfully.

Lawyer Zebo! Yes, that’s a subpoena he’s cheerfully waving. How could you not want to come to court for that, huh?

Did I mention Zebo’s mom is in the law field?

Crusader Zebo. I’m sure there’s a Halloween costume like this somewhere.

Pirate Zebo! Ain’t the eyepatch cute? Although I don’t know how well it would work,

being a dog who has a stick for a leg. He’d always be chewing on it or want you to throw it, I think.

And lastly, Cowboy Zebo! Yee-ha!

There you are… more soon. Lotsa work going on right now.
