Brooklyn Artist Dean Russo Launches Journals #art #pets #portraitsAugust 13, 2018
Known for his signature pet portraits, Brooklyn-based Dean Russo brings his colorful art to gift worthy blank lined journals. In his eight-journal series, Russo's dogs, cats and other vivacious works of art are seen on the cover of high quality journals perfect for creative self-expression.
Dog is Love,
Pit Bull Journal,
Shiva Cat Journal,
Tilted Cat Journal,
Skull Journal, and
These colorful journals make a beautiful gift to keep for yourself or to give to others.
The story behind Russo's classic kitties and dynamic dogs is a lovely tale of animal rescue awareness. Russo would visit shelters and ask for photos of adoptable pets to paint. He would then donate proceeds from the paintings back to the shelter. Shortly after this activity, both he and his unique paintings developed an impressive following and Russo continues to advocate on behalf of animal shelters to this day.
Dean Russo: A Retrospective, a compendium on his life's work is also scheduled to launch later this year by Fox Chapel Publishing. The coffee-table like book will span Russo's entire career, offer 200 vibrant photos, and include commentary from the artist himself.
