When you’ve got a bit of wall a space to spare, what better to hang on it than illustrations of your adorable little pets?
Since becoming Twitter friends with Jo from Studio Legohead, we’ve had our eye on her work. The other week, we decided to finally invest in some pet portraits of our (lovingly named) fat cat and Betsy the Chihuahua. After sending over images of both of our beloved pets, it took barely any time at all before Jo’s work was complete and we were the proud owners of two fabulous illustrations, fit for any room in the house.
Jo Chambers is a girl with a ‘passion for pooches’. An illustrator and a textile artist based in Bath, she just loves to draw canines and felines, and through combining marker pens, fine liners and embroidery, is particularly good at capturing the personality of the animals from just a few images.
Not only does Jo work on illustrations, she can also design collages and paintings – adding accessories including hats, bow ties or jewellery, for a quirkier finish. She also has an Etsy shop, for those who may not have pets of their own, but simply love her work.
We are so pleased with how Jo has managed to capture Betsy and Fat Cat! Many of our friends think we’re a little bit bonkers, showing so much pet love, but how can you resist such wonderful original pieces of art?
