Description This was commissioned as a gift for letting my parents stay over for several days for my Uncle's 60th birthday. The two dogs are Bella and Rosie, respectively. Apparently neither dog would stay still long enough to get a good picture of the two of them, so this picture was composited from two separate pictures. This piece is airbrushed with acrylic paints on an artboard.Are you interested in having a portrait of your pet created? Contact me via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Michael Burt, Thousand Oaks, CA Member Since January 2007 Artist Statement Gorilla Airbrush is located in Thousand Oaks, California. I am Michael Burt, creative artist and illustrator. I currently specialize in doing animal portraiture, but I can create realistic reproductions of anything where I have a reference to work from. As an avid underwater videographer and photographer, my self indulgent art tends towards images that include underwater themes. I am available for making creative artwork from scratch as well as making reproductions and improvements to photos.
I can do paintings and illustrations on any non-automotive substrate. As examples, I can paint on:
o T-Shirts (any color)
o Neoprene wetsuits
o Gear bags
o And many more surfaces...
If you want it painted, contact me and feel free to ask. I primarily use an airbrush with acrylic paints, which can generally adhere to anything with proper preparation and clearcoating. Based on my workspace, I can not do appropriate clearcoats for all surfaces, I will let you know if you will be responsible for getting a clearcoat separately. I am able to work with brush, pencil, and pen and ink as well.
I am not a full time artist, contracts are done strictly on a first come first served basis. Lead times and prices for custom pieces will vary based on the request and materials required.
