When you are wandering a festival and see a patiently waiting Pug sitting politely for it’s portrait, you can’t help but notice. Being able to draw a pet in real time while that pet is posing and wagging its tail is a skill that is extraordinary and in itself captivates your imagination and commands your attention. Such is the mastery of pet portrait extraordinaire and On the Spot Pet Portraits owner & Mason’s own - artist Sid Hogge.
"I love talking to people and making those connections. I like connecting with them and it's always cool when they get excited to see me here. I do art education at LCC and I've always drawn and done stuff like this. I did Spring Fling a few years ago of my regular artwork and it didn't go so well and I was discouraged. I got invited to do spring fling again this May and I did this stuff. My Mom told me that I should pet portraits. " Sid explained. "It was a very good idea; I couldn't get up for even five seconds. I did 26 pieces and I'm averaging ten to fifteen per show."
With the ability to draw your pet while you wait you can catchup with Sid at a local festival or send in your photos to be done off site. Sid works with different mediums including the popular portraits on watercolor paper and sharpie; and the more elaborate 11 x 14 canvas acrylic painted pet portrait on 11 x 14 ($70). Her work can be found and ordered on Instagram @OntheSpotPetPortraits; or you can call her at 517-599-7633.
