Welcome to DOGGIE DRAWINGS! My name is Lili Chin and I have been working professionally as an artist and animator for 15 years.
The DOGGIE DRAWINGS project began in April 2008 as a fundraiser for Boston Buddies, a non-profit Boston Terrier rescue organization in Southern California. I was a foster mom for Boston Buddies and I also adopted my blue-eyed Boston Terrier, Boogie, from Boston Buddies. In the beginning, 100% of proceeds from my dog portraits were donated to rescue.
DOGGIE DRAWINGS has since then evolved into a business where I provide a wider range of services. I continue to take commissions for custom pet portraits and donate a percentage to different dog rescue organizations. I also create illustrations for dog-related businesses and non-profits, educational artwork for dog trainers/behaviorists (which have been published in dog training books and magazines) and sell original posters, flyers, calendars, t-shirts and cards starring Boogie, my Boston Terrier.

I look forward to drawing your dogs or helping you with your project!
