This is a T-Shirt Design I did for a Pit Bull Rescue in MD. I did this artwork for free! I also did a children's version for them as well.

Bye Bye Oreo's Killer!

Nathan Winograd said on July 27th 2012: 
Yesterday, I asked people to write the Chair of the ASPCA Board of Directors, asking for a more progressive replacement after the glorious announcement that Oreo's killer, Ed Sayres, will "step down" as President. His response? "Everyone at the ASPCA is extremely grateful to Ed for his immense contributions to the organization on behalf of our nation's animals. During his tenure, Ed has established the ASPCA as a leader in providing sheltering expertise, enforcing animal welfare laws, and rescuing and rehabilitating animal victims of cruelty. Under Ed's leadership, the organization's membership base has tripled to more than 1.2 million and our revenues have quadrupled to $148 million in 2011."

He might have duped the animal loving American public to enrich the ASPCA with heartbreaking commercials that prey on their emotions and the ASPCA Board might consider success based on how much money they raise, but there isn't a single No Kill advocate who believed that Sayres' tenure was anything but a tragic betrayal of New York City’s neediest animals, the animal protection community’s desire to save animals currently being killed throughout the State, and the lost potential to move this movement aggressively toward the achievement of a No Kill nation.

Remember this: Since Ed Sayres killed Oreo's Law and all subsequent attempts to mandate collaboration by making it illegal for NYS shelters to kill animals when qualified rescue groups are willing to save them, over 50,000 animals who had an immediate place to go have been needlessly slaughtered throughout the state--enough to fill every seat at Yankee stadium.

The new Lennox- Wicca

Wicca is a pit bull who scratched a woman and is now facing her death. She does not live in an area where there is BSL and the "attack" did not take place in an area with BSL, regardless she did not receive the rights that are granted by dogs that are accused of being attacking in Montreal because she is a pit bull. This is Breed Discrimination. The law says a dog that "bites" must wear a muzzle for 90 days and should be examined by an behaviorist. None of these things happened because she was taken away and sentenced to death. This is unfair, unlawful, cruel and needs to stop. Wicca, like Lennox, may die because of human ignorance. (Update: Wicca was killed on 7/26/2012, despite over 10,000 signatures on her petition, the judge begging for her to be pardoned, and the world watching.)
Dogs are NOT throw-away. They are sentient beings with the ability to feel, to love, to hurt and of course to change. Even if she was nipped this person, does that warrant death? Wicca's owner was interviewed and cries throughout the whole thing. Dogs are not property, they are members of our families and should be treated as such. Her 'wrong-doing' should not warrant a death sentence.... Save Wicca.

No Kill NY, Inc

So Adopt NY did not want my logo - oh well! I offered my design to No Kill NY, Inc instead. They liked it but wanted some color changes! I think I like this one better.

After a 2 year legal battle, Lennox the dog has but 3 hours left to live before Belfast City Council wrongfully kills him for 'looking like a pit bull'. Two years ago they took Lennox from his family in Belfast, Ireland and since then the world has pleaded for them to let him live and go home. Lennox never bit anyone, no one has ever complained about him at all. He did NOTHING wrong, except look like a pit bull. He is in fact an American Bulldog/Labrador mix as DNA confirms. Regardless, Belfast has refused offers from Cesar Milan (the Dog Whisperer) and Victoria Stillwell (star of the Animal Planet Show, It's Me or the Dog) and many other dog behaviorists and activists across the world to rehome Lennox. Politicians have even shown their disgust in Belfast's decision to wrongly kill this dog despite other available options. Thousands upon thousands of people are protesting and will refuse to ever visit Belfast. Almost 200,000 people signed the petition to allow Lennox to live and tonight the world cries, hopes, begs, and pleads for them to make the only humane, justifiable, and right decision- let Lennox Live.

Lennox is but ONE victim of Breed Specific Legislation. BSL claims more family pets than it does actual public threats. It is time to start blaming the DEED not the BREED. Its important to note that Lennox was/is a therapy dog for his little girl. Shame of Belfast. We Will Never Forget.

Adopt NY - Logo Idea

I have offered my services to many No Kill organizations. Adopt NY is a fantastic group and they are working on making T-shirts and such, so I  offered to work on some ideas for them. This image is not associated with their organization at this time, but if they choose it, they will be free to do with it as they please! It'd be great if they liked it and wanted to use it, but if not I enjoyed making this! (Note: if you are a part of a 501(c)3, and are No Kill, or trying your best to get there, contact me for some work!)

Raylan Givens

Raylan Givens from FX's Justified. Timothy Olyphant is an incredible actor, especially as a cowboy!

Book Sale Request

This is just a little something I did for my Grandmother and her annual Book Sale in Princeton NJ. This is the first major piece of work I have done in a while, and it shows. I hope that I continue to stay out of my Artist-block and get back to where I was.


Today I drew for the first time in 2 months. It was rough... nothing feels right. I feel as though I had to re-train my hand. I haven't felt like drawing at all as of late. I have had a lot of things going on in my life and drawing was not providing me with any sort of stress-release, so I avoided it. 

BUT. I did however watch all of Justified- which I will probably attempt to draw next. This is Sherlock though. I have only seen the first season, I like it but I'm not really into it yet. I wish my burst of interest in art had occurred while watching Justified because THAT is a terrific show!
