My Sweet Xena...Forever
Ever since losing Xena, I've wanted to have her image preserved in a more artistic way, so here was my opportunity. Nate illustrated Xena as you see above, capturing her essence with beautiful shades and shadows. I could stare at my girl all day, but fortunately still have Tanner and Oliver to cuddle with in reality.
Of course, Nate would love to create a cartoon of most any pet you may have. You'll find examples of a parrot, cat, a Toy Poodle and numerous others on his sites. He'll give you options like a watercolor, cartoon illustration or a pen and ink drawing with digital coloring. His sites have samples and options; you'll find your choices for ordering here. What a fun job, huh?!!
As a professional cartoonist and illustrator, Nate Fakes also has a soft side for animals. He has recently started a project with the ASPCA in Tampa Bay to help homeless pets, partly by donating 20% of his profits. When you order from him, he'll donate the funds to the Tampa Bay ASPCA or the shelter of your choice.
You'll find fun photos, samples of Nates various types of work and more at his sites:
