Update #17

The canine companion of Steve Jobs

2 comments

We can't believe it's already the end of August! We've been furiously working away at the layouts for Canine Chronicles and corresponding back and forth with our printers. It's all taking a little longer than we expected, but there are a lot of details to attend to when making a book. Thank you so much for your patience, and we promise the wait will be worth it!

In light of the recent news of Steve Jobs stepping down from Apple, we wanted to share with you one of the final images that will appear in Canine Chronicles. Meet the canine companion of Steve Jobs, featuring the beautiful Siberian Husky Beau. We carefully deconstructed a computer and painted it to make the backdrop for this shot. Below are some step by step shots from the making of the backdrop. Thanks again to our intern Joey Gonzalez for creating the artful arrangement for this shot!

We hope you are having a great summer and will update you with more news soon!
