I have a lot of custom art of Koly and Fe.
Digital Illustrations by AJ Emm (Oh hey, did you know you could win one? Cha. True story; click here to enter.) I have photo collages and pencil sketches. Oil paintings and crayon drawings. I even have the original watercolours by Connie Gross that created our logo.
I don’t have anything like the pet portraits from Hither Rabbit.
Inspired by an art lesson with third grade students, Hither Rabbit opened in 2013 offering adorable art pieces with just a hint of nostalgia.Using silk screening, hand colouring (with crayons!), and hand stitched appliques, artist Carolyn Kospender turns photos of your pet into a one of a kind art piece, unlike anything I have ever seen.
After your pup is drawn, he is hand stitched onto vintage inspired fabric. The fabric is stretched on an embroidery hoop and their name is sewn on, one pain staking stitch at a time. (Seriously, has anyone out there ever hand embroidered? Holy woof! It’s so much tougher than it looks.) Once the stitching is done, your super cute, adorably quirky custom pet portrait is done and ready to grace your walls. Who wouldn’t love a gift like this?! (Sadly, due to an awesomely overwhelming amount of custom orders, the deadline for custom work was bumped up and…now we’ve missed it. You can still snag a gift certificate though.)
