Local Oddball Draws Pugs!
Hi! We're Lauren and Gareth! Lauren draws the Inkpugs, and Gareth comes up with his fair share of our best ideas while working on his own creative projects. In 2013, in a dissociative haze brought on by a Chicago deep dish pizza, we started posting our favorite drawings online and haven't stopped yet.
(Yes, this looks EXACTLY like us.)
Will you draw my pug?
Unfortunately I can't take on any personal commissions. I'm still trying to catch up on my ideas list from 2015!
Can I use your art?
YES, for personal, non-commercial purposes!
NO, for commercial or business purposes.
Our general rule is: don't sell our art, use our art to sell stuff, or sell stuff with our art on it (unless you're using a supply you purchased from a licensed retailer, like our Spoonflower fabric)! If you have any questions about our use policy, contact me and I will be happy to help clarify!
What about for a tattoo?
Go for it! Post pictures. #inkpug
Did you ever make a book?
Will you donate to my rescue?
Due to the number of donation requests and the fact that we're a teeny tiny enterprise, we try to focus our donations where they can have the greatest impact: for example, creating graphics for large fundraisers like #PugsTakePhilly, or donating the proceeds from our original art. We regret that we cannot donate items for raffles or events, though we know they are often very deserving of support!
Do you do wholesale?
How many pets do you have?
None. NONE. We put out a trail of hotdogs every night, and still nothing!
