“Who wouldn’t want to see their pet as a cartoon character?” A good question, and one that the creative brain behind Sketch Your Pet has answered – NO ONE!
Launched by illustrator and designer Jon Chapman, Sketch Your Pet use pictures of your furry friend (they can sketch any pet, not just furry ones) and bring them to life as a stylish black and white pencil sketch or fancy full colour illustration.
It would be an understatement to admit that we were just a little bit giddy at the prospect of having our very own dog George turned into a cute caricature.
The fun doesn’t stop there though – aside from hanging an awesome picture of your pet on your wall, you can also have the caricature printed onto a multitude of cool stuff including coasters, cushions, mouse mats and even t-shirts; we went for the coasters but are thinking about going for the whole lot!
No need to hog all the pet sketching goodness for yourself either – Sketch Your Pet is a perfect gift for pet lovers, as Jon discovered when he accidentally stumbled across the idea for the business:
“One christmas I was completely broke and I wanted to get my mum something thoughtful and cute so I decided to sketch her dogs as a present for her. The sketch came out really well and she was absolutely bowled over with it (yes she cried!). She said I should totally set up a website offering this as a service for other pet owners. Turns out she was onto something! Aren’t mums great?!”
A Classic Pencil and Ink Sketch by Sketch Your Pet is £70.00 and a Super Fancy Colour Illustration is £140.
