Last fall we participated in the North Idaho Pet Expo to promote our side business, PetArtWorks pet portraits. It was our first trade show. The day before the show, while we were setting up, we were approached by the event coordinator who liked my work so much she asked if we'd be willing to offer a free portrait to the winner of the Cutest Pet Photo Contest in the Spokane Pet Expo scheduled for Spring 2020. In exchange, we would be included in all the marketing for the event as a sponsor, and be given a prime location at the trade show.
Free advertising? Prime location? Sure, why not?
Well, of course Kung Flu cancelled the Spokane Pet Expo. The Cutest Pet Photo Contest went on, however.
Since it was switched to an online contest, I thought it would be cool to do another demo video of me painting the winning portrait.
That's what we have here.
I hope you like it. I put a bit of effort into including commentary of my process, but of course there's a lot more I could have included.
Please let me know if you have any questions, and remember, you can order your own pet portrait using the link below.
