Portraits for Pits was established in mid 2014 and are all about painting pit bulls in a pawsitive light, literally. Two artists (Steve and Evie) and a pit bull (Olly) are raising awareness by creating custom pet portraits.! Also, take note that the portraits are not just of pit bulls, but for pit bulls since they donate 10% of portrait profits to bully breed rescues. That being said, they welcome all breeds and species to be made into portraits. Their mission is to discourage any prejudice and discrimination against pit bulls and all other bully breeds. Here is some info on the artists and muse that make these portraits come to life:
Steve and Evie are illustrators from the San Francisco Bay Area. They graduated from Otis College of Art and Design in 2012 with Bachelor’s Degrees in Fine Art. They both share a love for painting, pit bulls and all animal kind.
Olly is a 6 year-old pit bull mix found in 2012. Although he had been abandoned in the wilderness and left in rough shape, he now enjoys living his life to the fullest while lounging around the house, receiving treats and taking daily walks. Like most pit bulls, he is an exceedingly affectionate little guy. He loves everyone he meets and is most happy when with his humans and getting his back scratched.
Here are some examples of their amazing work, for more info check out – Portraits for Pits
