One of my coworkers, Jeff Cleary, forwarded a picture of a big bug to me the other day, because he knows I like that stuff. Because I’m nosy, I looked at the email addresses of the other folks he copied on the email, and I noticed that Jeff’s wife, Chrystal, has an address that ends chryscleary.com. “Hmn,” I thought. “I wonder what’s on her website?”
It turns out that her website is full of cool graphic art, much of it dog-related. This is not surprising, since Jeff and Chrystal dote on their dogs almost as much as they dote on their daughter. So I asked Chrystal to choose some pieces that we could put on the blog, and here’s her reply:
Thanks for the opportunity to share some of my work. I have been thinking a bit about what to share, and I decided to go with my dog block prints. Last year, I needed to raise money to build a non-see-thru fence for our yard, so as to minimize the visual exposure (and therefore stress levels) of my reactive dog, Sage, so I offered to make prints of people’s dogs. Here are some of the resulting pieces.
