Illustration, Creative Direction, Production, Leatherwork
Our family dog Toaster passed away on 03.21.2023. Toaster would hang out with me while I worked on leather projects, so I took a break after he passed. I wanted to work on leather again, so this project felt very therapeutic.
The process was fairly straightforward. I did an illustration of Toast first, cut up the different shades of leather, hand stitched them to the background piece, then stretched and stapled all of that to a wood frame.
