The One with Amy's Books

(The wonderful and awesome and pretty and stylish and talented :) Amy asked me to make her a pair of books with her doggie's on them and I gladly obliged. I present: Buster and Bamboo books!

Here's a close-up of each doggie's profile that I painted with gauche:

Both Rachel and Joey came down into the stairwell to keep me company while I took pictures of the books. Actually I think they just wanted to be IN the pictures...
