Cave Canem

This week, I’m going to paint a giant mural on my wall. I think I’ll go with a cave canem-looking dog guardian this time; though the sketch looks more like a dog-rat hybrid, doesn’t it. Anyway, it’s as close as I’ll get to having real dog, at least for the next few years, so I’ll take what I can get. Or beget, I guess.


Here it is, all painted. I’ll tweak it over the next few weeks, as new annoyances dawn upon me (that lower jaw is too thin, for example).

And I’ll throw in some pictures of the room, because I’m very fond of my wizard desk, and I like to show it off. Look at that majestic hunk of wood!

  1. I actually like the look of your dog. It has an air of Royalty about it. I wonder what a little pudgy puppy would look like next to your big dog.

      Yes, totally. Whenever I draw dogs, I default to my old wolfhound/greyhound, who had a tendency to make all dogs – even reasonable adult ones – look like little puppies by comparison.

    Personally I love your slinky rat dog. I noticed in your other comment that you draw inspiration from greyhounds and wolf hounds and I definitely see it! I especially love the little grabby hand paws.

  3. It’s very cool – it has an erudite, mysterious air to it, like a bit of heraldry from the Faerie realms.

  4. Impatient to see the result !

  5. Sorry for the size of my name, I have not found a way to change the size after validation.
    OH ! By the way, your style is magically graphic.

  6. Hello! May i have your permission to use your dog mural as a template for a metal work project? I have a greyhound so this silhouette is perfect for a ‘please close the gate’ plaque.
