I was contacted in early November 2015 to be a part of an art project for Oakland Animal Services called "Home is where the heART is". The idea was to have art made of hard-to-adopt animals and then whoever adopted them would receive the art too. Here is a link to the rest of the art 
This was a magical experience from the beginning. First, I was contacted out of the blue. I usually don't like to do free work much anymore, because I have bills to pay! But this was a very worthy project and I love animals. Then the morning I arrived to choose my animal, I saw Bosco and immediately knew he would be a great subject. One of the attributes I believe scares people about pit bulls is that many of them have huge heads. And Bosco was one of them!! But he also had sweet eyes and I knew I wanted to help him find a home. So here he is!
