A writer and editor by trade, I love to draw—mostly pictures of my dogs, River and Calla. Here, I post drawings, photos and other artwork of the two cutest animals ever (and some of their very adorable friends). Subscribe to get an email when there's a new drawing. Questions? Contact me. Elsewhere on the web: My Dog is Chelsea and Remember the Pudding.

Lucy, 2012. This is another take on the one-eared Lucy, also created on my iPad. For this I used a different app called SketchBook Pro. I wanted to try a program that offers more features—more brushes, more colors, zoom, high-res export files, etc. It took me a while to get a hang of how to use it (computers are so much fickler than paper and paints!). The result is a stylized-yet-realistic and almost animated look. It’s definitely not my normal style but it was fun to experiment. On an unrelated note, I’ve added an email subscription for those of you non-Tumblrers (is that a word?). If you sign up, you’ll get an email only on days that I post new drawings.
