Be the person your dog thinks you are

It was a week after this brief was given and  I still had no idea what to do. The task was to find a quote and do an illustration inspired by it. I scoured the internet in searching nothing appealed to me. It wasn't until I was sitting at Balaclava station that I found this on the wall.

I loved it so I went with it. A dog would exaggerate everything, including how awesome you are. Let's face it, the dog doesn't know you didn't hunt down what's in those shopping bags. So that was the premise of my idea, 'Be awesome'. This was my first doodle,

Admittedly, it lacked awesomeness. So I needed to find some amazing people to give me some visual queues. I knew just the guys,

And so came my concerning vision of what I felt their lovechild would look like.

The sketch eventually worked for me and here's the final product. A rugged, gleaming Fabio Norris-He-Man bringing the dog's feast home in all its glory.
