What's a Pet Caricature?

We all love our pets- and we want everyone to know just how amazing they are! Pet portraits have become a popular way for pet parents to immortalize and cherish their furry friends. Artist Lauren Knight uses her unique, off-beat illustration style to create alternative pet portraits that are expressive, light-hearted and just plain fun! Based on your photos and descriptions, Draw My Dog Custom Pet Caricatures are all hand-drawn, original works of art created with love using high-quality paper and drawing materials.

How will you draw my pet?

Thor the rescue pit bull mix is a real hero!

 At Draw My Dog, our custom pet caricatures are based on two factors: 1) your photos and 2) your descriptions of your pet's personality and behaviors. Artist Lauren Knight aims to exaggerate the qualities that make every individual pet different and special, while also capturing their likeness.


With that in mind, consider how YOU want your pet to be drawn when submitting photos and descriptions of your pet! For example, if you want your pet to be drawn with her ears up, avoid submitting photos with her ears down.

If you choose to personalize your pet portrait to include Special Additions or the Whole Picture, consider what items and scenes you want your pet to be drawn with. Maybe their favorite toys or their favorite spot in the sun? Maybe portraying a character in your favorite TV show or movie? We encourage you to go all out and make your pet portrait truly unique to YOU and your pet!


Please note that due to the nature of caricatures, your pet's features will be exaggerated in their portrait.  Custom Pet Caricatures are intended to be fun, light-hearted drawings of pets that celebrate their differences!

How long will it take?

Depending on artist availability and time of year, custom pet caricatures take between 1-4 weeks to complete.
