I started with a photo from Henry’s owner. And it’s a good one; he’s very photogenic, Henry, I mean (well, both of them, actually).

Next comes the sketch, which is cut up to make the paper pattern.

Here is the sketch/pattern, re-pieced for a quick photo session. To give a sense of scale, the second photo is of a decaptitated Henry alongside his friend Harvey and my box of brown threads.

At this point, the photos seem to dry up – so we’ll skip to the grand finale.

drum roll…

If you would like a bespoke portrait of your own pet have a look at the commissions page.

One thought on “Henry

  1. Genius. Henry is the male supermodel of dogs – stunning and stupid. He is very proud to have been immortalized!!

    Love Henry’s less good looking owner xx
