We're so excited to announce our licensing partnership with Dean Russo, a "doggone-good" Brooklyn-born artist who specializes in beautifully colorful depictions of pets and pop culture icons!
Here's a bit about Dean's creative process, straight from Mr. Russo himself:
"Each piece begins with a bold ink outline. I then focus on the eyes of my subject. The eyes are perhaps the most important element in a piece; they hold every part of the subject’s characteristics. Bold colors juxtaposition with abstract patterns to project the hidden soul of a living species is what compels my work. Portraying the energy and joy that can sometimes be lost in otherwise preconceived notions of the subject is what drives me."
