"My parents first dog, Melody, was my best friend growing up. She was a very sweet and mild mannered Shetland Sheepdog that always enjoyed your company."
Drastie Cove by Casey Crisenbery
"In Scottish tradition there are tales of 'Otter Kings' who were found traveling in packs. When captured, they would grant any wish in exchange for their freedom. The Otter skins were also prized for their ability to render a warrior invincible."
This is a sneak peek of Casey's work for the Animystics Exhibition. You can check out his work on the Light Grey Shop here, and you can see more of his work on his portfolio website here. All of the work for the show, all of the originals, prints, and handcrafted-works will be available on the online shop starting April 18th, and opening at Light Grey Art Lab on April 25th! Proceeds will be going to local shelters, the Animal Humane Society, Feline Rescue, and Homeward Bound Dog Rescue- it's for a great cause! Proceeds from Casey's work will go towards Homeward Bound Dog Rescue.
