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.
