D61,

The farther you go down the list of these images, the more likely you will get a letter summoning you to, Silent Hill.

probablynaked,

Goddamn masterful post

quinacridone,

Thank you, I always appreciate your feedback 👍

Etterra,

Good dog?

quinacridone,

Perfection!

berryjam,

Very cool, thanks for sharing! Some of these dogs are very haute couture

quinacridone,

I read somewhere that she often selects the fancy dogs that have their own instagram, so there’s definitely a fashionista attitude to them…glad you liked the post!

berryjam,

Haha, makes sense!

Diabolo96, (edited )

The first image was wtf, then the next few ones were really cute, and then back to wtf. What a roller-coaster! I think the one I enjoyed the most was the dog with glasses.

quinacridone,

I had the idea to start off with the moderately tweaked, then descending into the acid trip, until the dimensions melted into WTF…

…with the quotes hopefully giving a preview of the images, and some context of her process

I love her work, she’s also got some excellent cat and human collages that I’ll be exploring at some point soon 👍

Diabolo96,

I definitely did enjoy her work! But I vastly prefer the weird but cute collages over the biblically accurate angel incarnation of dogs. There’s something deeply unsettling about the multitude of eyes.

I love her work, she’s also got some excellent cat and human collages that I’ll be exploring at some point soon

I’ll be waiting. She’s definitely talanted, and I would enjoy seeing the selection you choose to show us! Thank you for sharing art I’d otherwise would never had discovered.

quinacridone,

No probs, I’m already in the process of selecting some
