This Illustration came as invitation to be part of a calendar for a Non Governmental Organization for Abandonated Pets. The comission was pro bono, so all the sales would be given to the organization in order to maintain their amazing work as a shelter and an adoption center for animals.
The basic theme was to inspire, somehow, people to think about adoption instead of buying animals.
My main concern was to show that it's possible to be adpted by a shelter animal lol, and it is a choice from the heart mostly, not only politicaly correct.
So i have drawn this portrait of Mme Bijou, a rich old lady, with her jewels as precious as any tiffany's gift: the cats Safire and Esmerald, the cockatiel Rubi and the dog Diamond.
A happy family as anyone can get when one's heart is open to such gifts as pet animals.
And i'm very proud to say that an amazing person has bought the original, who is now already in her wall.
