The Great PUPkin Dog Costume Contest

Yesterday I went to Fort Greene Park for the 16th Annual Great PUPkin Dog Costume Contest hosted by Fort Greene PUPs. As I expected, it was a hilarious event with many creative costumes. There were over one hundred entrants and they went by pretty fast, so it was a good challenge! Here are some of the dogs I drew! The winners were Ira Glass in first place, the G train in second, and third was Devo, who unfortunately I didn't draw. As always, PLEASE DO NOT USE OR REPRODUCE ANY OF THESE IMAGES WITHOUT PERMISSION! If you see your dog and would like to purchase a print, or would like to use the drawings for some other purpose, please contact me at carly@carlylarsson.com. Thanks!
