The Inspiration | Dr. Casey, Medical Dogtr
Happyness Clinic - Endwell, Wisconsin
As a certified Canine Good Citizen and Therapy Dog, Dr. Casey brought joy to the hundreds of people he visited in care facilities. He vocalized three word in the human language: roof, bark, and rough (he refused to speak more until humans achieved world peace – which they didn’t do in his lifetime). Among his hobbies were smiling, sleeping, doing tricks, and running away whenever possible (because he had a great sense of adventure).
I am an illustrator and designer. I have always enjoyed a good story. As an illustrator, my goal is to capture and create images of the thoughts and emotions that tell stories. These stories can be shared with the world, where people can connect and enjoy them. There are some stories that can not easily be verbalized, and this is when I can tell them through illustration.
