Illustrator Alexei Vella captured the likeness of our dog Bodhi perfectly. Bodhi’s deep black eyes and his white fluffy Shih Tzu hair brings out his sweet personality.
This all started back when I saw Alexei post an illustration of his Shih Tzu “Charlie Boy”, who looked exactly like our firstborn Shih Tzu named Chop. I couldn’t resist and I purchased a print from Alexei.
Then along came Bodhi. I contacted Alexei again to see if he could illustrate a portrait, this time of our secondborn, Bodhi.
This rest is history and now both prints hang side by side on our wall delighting us every day.
Thank you Alexei Vella!
