Other Dog Art Forms

Standard

001

Somewhere along the way as I owned a Newfoundland dog and began writing the novelette “Factory Tails: All Good Dogs Walk on the Left”, I began to experiment with loosely drawing Ebony’s head and giving it a geometric-like background effect around the image.

One of the results is this drawing of “Rocky”, a main character in “Factory Tails”, and another version is offered below.

“Factory Tails” is a world in which dogs are the protagonists, the antagonists, and…well, dogs are all the characters in this story told in a time when only dogs remain on the Earth. Just like their human predecessors, these dogs compete for work and retirement benefits in the factory, Big Blackie Biscuits, the only working industry in the country.

About bahelberg1

Since I first touched a pencil to paper, I've been writing. Where that passion has taken me as I lived life is explored in my Primary blog, http://www.mywritinglifexposed.wordpress.com . I love animals, including race horses, about whom I have written much, and I've always had a dog in my life. Shouldn't animals have their say? In my Second Primary blog, http://www.horsesandanimalsaretalkin.wordpress.com , I give them a chance to speak. In the Composite blog http://www.nearthefinishline.wordpress.com , I explore my life's journey and observations. Other interests -- poetry, sports, photography, thankfulness, story ideas, self-publishing, story art, fiction, and more -- get their due in my other (17) blogs. I'm from a rural community in Ohio, lived nine years in Vermont, then returned to my native Henry County in 1980. I've worked for various local newspapers and attended classes in writing over the years before retiring to free-lancing in 2008. It was after my migration back to Ohio that I began BAT Publishing in earnest. It is strictly a self-publishing enterprise in that I publish my own works -- novels, novelettes, short stories with my Roughcraft Art -- in my own softcover, or loose-leaf notebook, designs. My photos and artwork are also incorporated in the books. Prior to this endeavor, I produced a periodic story booklet for young writers only entitled "Connections". Its success sparked my interest in self-publishing my own titles.
