Here are some more Maqz-related pics. Two are details of the finalized painting; one shows the message I wrote my brother on the back of the canvas; the last picture shows Maqz himself from an angle that will allow you to compare the painting to the real deal. Enjoy.
(click to enlarge pics; clicking on one is enough to create a sort of slide show)
Maqz stares down the Devil:
I showed the painting pics to some of my students and coworkers. One frequently asked question was, "Don't chihuahuas usually have thin necks?" Maqz is a deerhead chihuahua; these dogs apparently tend to have thicker necks. (Vampires, take note.)
