Meet Ms. Daisy…she’s this year’s poster model for the Winnipeg Humane Society’s annual “Yappy Hour” fundraiser.
As this year the theme is “Viva Paws Vegas!” I decided that the images that I was going to create for the Winnipeg Humane Society to promote the event would be based around what Vegas know for… namely gambling and show girls!
If you don’t already know, Yappy Hour is a cocktail hour for dogs and their human companions to get together and mix and mingle with like minded others (of both the two and the four legged variety) at the Fairmont Hotel. This years’ event is on April 8th, 2010. I’ve been involved with Yappy Hour since its inception 6 years ago – the last few years I was actually on the committee that organized the event. I created the idea of using posters with funny theme based images to promote the event a few years ago and every year I design and photograph something well….a little unique! My concepts are always based on the trying to do something that will catch the public’s attention and hopefully give them a smile and a laugh at the same time!
So come out and enjoy a good time at Viva Paws Vegas! I’ll be there as usual creating pet portraits on location that you can take home with you that night – with the proceeds going to Winnipeg Humane Society. Don’t worry if you don’t have a dog to take along, you don’t need to have a furry friend with you to get in!
