A Life in Pictures


Last night I came across the website of Oakland-based illustrator, Michael Wertz, who, among other things, maintains a separate photo site dedicated exclusively to his pit-mix rescue, Olive. This is my kind of guy. Apparently life with Olive has had its ups and down, but he is a man in love, and it's chronicled for all to see.

Incidentally, Michael Wertz also draws a dog-related picture a day and posts it on his professional website, Wertzateria. You can find them (he's currently up to 78), as well as his sketchbook under "Extras."

Fantastic.

Wow! I thought the only people who read my blog were my mother, my boyfriend and a few cousins. Thanks, Michael, especially since I so shamelessly stole Olive's picture right off your website.

Dog people really are the best.
