Not too long ago, while deep in a black hole of procrastination, I stumbled across a pet portrait artist, Pawblo Picasso, on Instagram. Within seconds, I'd already mentally picked out the bow tie collar Bruiser would wear for his portrait.
The incredibly talented artist behind Pawblo Picasso, Melissa King, takes a favorite photo and creates an acrylic painting that is as bright and bold as it is perfect rendering of your pet's personality. And, in addition to the painting, you can order a range of products with the same image, from phone and laptop covers to pillows and t-shirts.
If you're like me and just dying to get your hands on one, I'd recommend reaching out to her before the holiday season sneaks up - she maintains a pretty consistent waiting list.
Check out her website for more samples of her work, pricing, and order options.
