|My contribution (front and back)|
First, I drew a boston terrier. Hey, it's what popped into my head (that and also the Dropkick Murphys song I used to title this post.) I've got these cats, see, and no dog but I love dogs and though I know very little about them, boston terriers seem adorable and tough at the same time. That's what I want for Boston - adorable and tough - so there you go.
Then I picked some cheery colors out of the scrap bin and for me, the cheeriest of colors is a nice, bright yellow. (Back when I sold camping equipment for a living, I liked to relate to customers that winter and mountain tents are so often sun-hued as it's the color most likely to keep you from falling into depression when you're trapped inside it.) But I digress.
I really like the way my pup turned out; I don't draw enough! I was going to cut out the whites of her eyes too but thought she looked good this way. It's raw-edge appliquéd with a hand-written label, heat-set on the back.
Only six by eight inches but I think it says what I want to say and that is:
"To Boston with Love from Minnesota."
