Dog Days

Dog Days

David Hockney’s Dog Days is one of our Creative Director’s favourite books.

LoveMyDog’s ‘Canine Couture’ designer Lilly Sharavesh is a big fan of David Hockney’s book, originally published in 2011. The result of sharp observation and affection, these paintings and drawings within are lyrical studies in form and design.  David’s text gives a glimpse of how to work with models who don’t necessarily want to sit still. And we certainly know that feeling with Rabbit!

David Hockney says, “From September 1993, I painted and drew my dogs. This took a certain amount of planning, since dogs are generally not interested in Art (I say generally only because I have now come across a singing dog). Food and love dominate their lives.

I make no apologies for the apparent subject matter. These two dear little creatures are my friends. They are intelligent, loving, comical and often bored. They watch me work; I notice the warm shapes they make together, their sadness and their delights. And, being Hollywood dogs, they somehow seem to know that a picture is being made.”

Daschund’s are certainly one of Lilly’s favourite breeds. “Daxi’s are such an unusual shape that I designed a coat pattern especially to fit them. They look fabulous in just about everything!
