Tiny Confessions began when my wife and I adopted our bichon, Willie. As I was walking him through the streets of New York, I began coming up with oddly specific revelations that he might make if he could speak ("I actually believe I own everything I pee on"). I just found the idea of a pet expressing embarrassing / naughty secrets in an overly wordy manner to be funny.
I usually get photos of pets from friends or fans of the series and then find out something about their personalities, funny stories, and behaviors. I do a pencil drawing and then do the actual painting on the iPad.
My dog Willie is a clown and provides many of the confessions himself. I’m very excited about the 2016 Calendar which comes out on July 15 and is available for pre-order now on Amazon!
