Doodle Diner: Pickledog




Hooray the Doodle Diner is open for business! To celebrate to launch Pickledog has created a dilly-diner illo, and answered  5 questions created by his fellow diners. Enjoy!

5 Questions with Pickledog

Q: Do you have an agent…if not would you like to work with one?

A: I do not currently have an agent, but I would eventually like to work with one. It would really depend on wether I found an agent that was good fit for me and my illustration style. Of course it would also depend on wether there’s an agent who wants to take on a cartoon dog.


Q: What is the first thing you remember drawing?

A: It may not be the first thing that I ever drew, but I remember drawing a red and blue house in kindergarden. The house was just basic triangles and squares with smaller squares inside for windows and doors. I think it was built into a giant tree, as I was (and still am) crazy about the idea of living in a tree-house. I think it would be fun to try to recreate the drawing from memory someday.


Q: Do you have a favorite memory from an art class?

A: Most of my memories from art class were great, but one that sticks out is when I was told to always paint from the top of the paper down so I wouldn’t get my sleeves dirty. Really, if you can’t get dirty, then what’s the point?


Q: When you go to a diner, what food would you be most likely to order?

A: That’s easy, a hamburger topped with cheese, bacon, tomato, pickles, onion, ketchup, mustard, mayonnaise, and slaw instead of fries. If the diner has an All-Day Breakfast menu that’s a totally different story.


Q: Is there a certain person from your childhood that especially encouraged you to pursue your love for art?

A: Both of my Grandmothers encouraged me to draw, and paint. I think ownership of all of my childhood masterpieces was spilt between them.


I’d just like to add that I am super happy to have been invited to stir up trouble here at the Doodle Diner. Let’s get cookin’!
