In 2014 I founded www.poppipet.com, a custom pet portrait website. I paint all portraits with walnut ink I made myself using american black walnuts sourced from upstate New York. The idea was to offer a single product using set parameters, to ensure a quick delivery of a quality portrait - one color (walnut ink on smooth bristol board paper), one size (11" x 14"), and includes 2 rounds of redesigns.
All my portraits are featured on my @poppipet instagram account. I also create portraits of instagram celebrity pets - a great way to drive some traffic!
I made gift cards for portraits for pop-up markets. The envelopes are hand-lettered using ink I made using american black walnuts.
