"Cute," she said, "but we both know I didn't come here for a dog and pony shoew."


Her directness unnerved me. I'd have to get on the stick and win her trust. If she felt played, playtime would be over before it ever got started.

Dog + Pony Shoe

Every shoe tells a story — When a member quipped sardonically that the only pieces that ever sold at  Northern Ohio Illustrators Society shows were ones with puppies on them, the theme "Dog + Pony Show" was chosen for the next show. Of course I begged to do the poster — It was a theme with its own built-in intentional typo! I added the story much later, to add the piece to a gallery show I was doing in New Orleans.
