Canine Culture

Hello everyone, CEO Olivia reporting. Walter Chandoha was a prawlific photographer, known especially for his photographs of animals, especially cats. Over his long career, his archive grew to more than 225,000 photographs including approximately 90,000 photographs of cats.😺😺😺

He started taking photographs as a child with the family Kodak camera. Later he would be drafted into the military during World War II where he served as a press photographer & then as a combat photographer in the Pacific War theater.

One night while walking home from classes he found a kitten shivering in the snow. The kitten, Loco, became one of his favorite subjects. His enjoyment of photographing that cat prompted him to become a free-lance photographer, eventually specialized in photographs of cats. That’s some meowsome cat😻

Walter passed away at the age of 98 but not before having his work appear on more than 300 magazine covers & thousands of advertisements.

Let’s see some furbulous felines shall we?

 

Have a pawsome weekend.

Artist Phill Singer

Canine Culture

Welcome to Friday everyone. Today I’ve sniffed out the works of painter Phill Singer. Phill graduated from The School of Visual Arts in New York city in 1989 & has been working professionally ever since. He has done paintings for clients such as Celestial Seasonings Tea, Forbes Magazine, National Geographic Magazine, & numerous New York Publishers including Avon, Harper Collins & Viking Books.

A desire to create his own paintings eventually overtook his illustration career. Currently his work combines illustration influences with his newly found appreciation for the painters of the 18th century and a strong affection for surrealism. Let’s have a good sniff.

Have a pawsome weekend.
