I’m finally getting around to posting the full set of dachshund/dachshund mix tiles commissioned by the couple in South Dakota earlier this year. I really enjoyed making this series and I think it illustrates the range of photographs I receive from customers. Often people ask me is if the photo they provide is good enough to work from. Typically it’s easier to work from sharp, detailed photos but sometimes that’s not possible (particularly if the portrait is of a dog who has passed along time ago). Most of the photos this couple sent me were great but a couple proved challenging. That said, making a nice tile from a challenging photo is very rewarding.
I love the way the tiles are being displayed in their newly renovated kitchen.
