Welcome to Happydesigner Pet Pawtraits

The place to come for quirky pet illustrations!

Have you ever thought how great it would be to have your very own, hand-drawn illustration of your beloved pet or pets?

Would you like to capture that ‘special’ photograph of a pet you’ve sadly lost, in a unique way? Or have you a pet that’s full of fun (and maybe a little bit naughty!), and want to reflect this with a quirky, bespoke piece of artwork that you can keep forever?

Well, you are in the right place!


Pet Pawtraits –  Every pet owners PAWFECT gift!

Whatever pet you have; whether it be a Gerbil, Dog, Cat, Owl or Ostrich, or perhaps something maybe even more obscure, we can create a fun illustration for you to giggle at, love, and treasure!

We have made the process as simple and as straight forward as we can. All we need is a good quality photo of your pet, along with a short description of their character, and we’re good to go! Then, once it’s drawn and printed, we will mount it, and send it out to you in the post for you to enjoy. Easy!

Here’s how it works in a little more detail…

  1. Contact us, and tell us a little bit about your pet(s).
  2. We’ll get back to you, confirming details of when we can program the work in.
  3. You send us the photo you wish us to work from, along with your pet’s bio.
  4. Sarah works her magic…!
  5. We print the illustration, mount it, and send it to you!

What you get….

You will receive an A5 print of an individually drawn illustration of your pet, in Sarah’s own unique style (as you can see on this page). This will be mounted in a good quality cardboard mount, ready for you to display in your own frame, or to just enjoy as it is.
