It was a special event sketch night tonight at the Society of Illustrators where we had the opportunity to sketch these awesome U.S. Air Force men and women dog handlers and their trusty (and energetic!) canine companions.
These were supposed to be 5-10 minute poses but of course these canines are not meant to pose for even 1 minute! These canines are trained to sniff out bombs and narcotics. Thus most of my sketches came out looking unfinished – but then they are sketches.
Such a pleasure being able to sketch these men and women who serve our country and share theirs as well as the canine’s experiences!
