Archives For dogs

Sorry for this interruption in your regularly scheduled lighting guessing. And for the shameless plug. But thanks to everyone was kind/gracious/fantastic enough to send pics of their pooches, I’m able to announce the launch of my latest guessing undertaking:

Guess the Pooch

It’s similar to this blog except it has absolutely nothing to do with lighting. I take fan-submitted pics of their lovable pooches and attempt to guess which doggies got together to create the mutt in question. I then create a brand new breed of dog (which will never be sanctioned by the American Kennel Club) and sketch it with the inglorious lack of detail you’ve come to expect.

I’ll only be guessing on pooches submitted by you, so please send some pics if you’d like me take a stab at guessing their lineage. It’s way cheaper than a DNA test, though most likely less correct.

Here are some examples of the newly developed breeds and corresponding drawings for you to peruse.

The new blog is just a wee baby but will grow like any puppy. With plenty of furniture chewing, sock eating and carpet wetting.

Okay, now back to light guessing. Promise.

Thanks for your continued support,

*UPDATE: 12/23/12

Thanks to everyone who has been sending in pics of their lovable pooches. Please remember to let me know their names and who shot the photos so I can give proper photo credit. Keep ’em coming, they’re fantastic! I’ll have an update shortly where you can see them. 

Thanks again,

Hey everyone. I have a request that may seem a bit strange. If any of you dog lovers out there have a cool photo of your mutt, I’d love for you to send it my way. I’m working on a new “guessing” project where i postulate which dogs got together to create the mutt in question. There may even be mediocre sketches of the aforementioned breeding moment. Complete with the inglorious lack of detail some of you find endearing.

If guessed upon, your dog will be slightly world-famous and you’ll know the mix without paying for expensive doggy DNA tests 🙂

A minimum of 900 pixels on the longest side would be great. Snapshots are perfect. You can email them here.

Back to photo lighting guessing now. Thanks for your continued support.
