Dante

Dante
Spray paint, stencil, screenprint
By Creatures of Habit, for the Middletown, N.Y., Humane Society

A few weeks ago, a friend and former colleague at the Times Herald-Record in Middletown, N.Y., wrote a story about the Art for Shelter Animals Project.

Kristina Sarracco saw the story and liked the idea. She works for the Humane Society there in Middletown, and so she took some photographs, and her boyfriend, who goes by the artist name Creatures of Habit, took up the challenge.

Kristina writes that she and her beau "saw this as a great way to get exposure while helping needy pets find a home."

Dante, the subject of Creature of Habit's first painting, is a 1-year-old male pit bull, and he has already been adopted!

I'll post two more paintings in the coming days. I think you'll like them - they are strong and sure, as this one is, highly graphical and very engaging. To see more, click here.

Thanks, Kristina and boyfriend!
