It began in a blog post from 2012, when I learnt to crochet the little fella's. Schnitzel, my favourite from the batch, is still on my desk looking up at me. Ahhh, hello Schnitzel!
I created this illustration of an extra long sausage dog, having a long nap, in his long hammock, for the Bright Agency US publishing campaign November Naps. bit.ly/1xY7HWP
It got me thinking about the advantages and disadvantages of being; The Longest Sausage Dog in the World, EVER! It's an ongoing idea I keep playing with, that I would love to develop into a picture book.
I also made him into my 2014 Christmas card. Woof!
