Dogs change people’s lives in many ways and I LOVE meeting people who have been inspired to do something because of their love of dogs (especially when that special ‘something’ is to help raise awareness of rescue dogs!) One such person is someone I have been admiring for a while; dog artist and illustrator Annabel Wilson. Annabel has undertaken the most wonderful project to draw a rescue dog each day for the month of August. Come and find out a little more about Annabel’s #RescueDogDaysOfSummer project, see some of her beautiful work, take a peek at our Facebook Live interview with her and find out how there’s still time for YOUR rescue dog to be drawn by Annabel!
WHO IS ANNABEL WILSON?
Annabel is a full-time teacher, but since discovering a talent for drawing dogs only two years ago, self-taught artist Annabel has seen her drawings star in their own Facebook page (Twinklets) as well as featuring in the recently published new book, Saving Maya, from talented anti-puppy farming campaigner Janetta Harvey.
Annabel decided to put her amazing skills to more great use and set herself a challenge this August! Knowing that August is one of the busiest times for dogs to be surrendered to animal rescue charities (people losing patience with puppies bought for a Christmas present or not wanting to pay for boarding kennels while they go on holiday etc) Annabel thought by drawing a rescue dog a day, it would help celebrate the positives of adopting a rescue dog and highlight how great they are! And your rescue dog could be drawn by Annabel!
DO YOU HAVE A RESCUE DOG?
Do you have a rescue dog?? Would you like your dog to be drawn by Annabel as part of the #RescueDogDaysOfSummer project? All you need to do is upload a good quality photograph of your dog using the hashtag #RescueDogDaysOfSummer to either Annabel’s Twitter, Facebook or Instagram pages. Annabel then puts all names into an app to see which dog she’ll be drawing for the remaining days of August!
Take a look at some of the lucky pooches she has drawn so far…
Want to know more?? Check out the Facebook Live video I did with Annabel to learn more about the #RescueDogDaysOfSummer project and see her drawing the gorgeous Scoobie-Roo below! I think this is a fantastic project, so if you have a rescue dog, make sure you enter! You’ll then receive an electronic image of your dog which you can treasure forever as well as helping to spread the word that rescue dogs are great dogs!!
