Mitra Farmand is a comic book artist. When she was studying at the Center for Cartoon Studies in White River Junction, Vermont, she was given an assignment.
“We had to draw a cartoon from a dream and I was dreaming about my dog a lot because she had just died.”
She called the book Dog (the original title was Gone – but she didn’t want to give away the ending).
I contacted Mitra through her website to see if she would allow me to publish some of the sketches from Dog. She was very gracious and sent me a number – only some of which I will use here – because I’d like you to support this artist and buy her book (and other drawings).
Dog, a small book of only 20 pages, would make a great gift this Christmas for any dog lover. And it covers, with sensitivity and heart, the feeling of those days after you’ve lost a loved dog.
