As of today, Carolyn Lemke, an incredible illustrator, (my) web designer, and all-around awesome human being has launched Noble Friends Shop! Read all about this wonderful new shop and see our exclusive discount code for Daily Dog Tag readers! All photos are from Alice G Patterson Photography.
Disclosure: Daily Dog Tag only shares information we feel is relevant to our readers. I received a tote bag as a gift from Noble Friends Shop, but I’m sharing Noble Friends Shop on my blog because I’m the biggest fan of Noble Friends Shop!
Carolynn will create an amazing custom pet portrait of all of your furry friends and that is just the beginning.
Now when you purchase a custom illustration you can also buy awesome home accessories, stationery items, tote bags, and iPhone cases so you can share your amazing custom pet illustrations with friends, family, and even random strangers!
Can you imagine how much more fun it will be to write your list or send a greeting card with your pet’s face on it?
From Carolynn: “I have been doing pet illustrations for about 5 years. It all started when I had a client that wanted a portrait drawn of her cat for her bio page. I used a technique in illustrating back in college that I never really applied to any of my designs or artwork before and I started to use this technique in my pet illustrations. I love adding the eyes and the finishing touches, like crazy extra fur around the ears. These are the parts that really capture the pet’s personality for me. I feel like a little hair out of place or a look in the eyes really tell a story about who your pet is.
I’ve always LOVED art and creating fun things but I never knew I wanted to be an artist until I literally was going to college. I actually even applied to a nursing program at first but something just didn’t feel right to me. In highschool, I had a huge passion for photography but never considered I could make a living at doing something I have a passion for. The world has come so far for artists it is really incredible to think about!
These products are created with LOVE. I love that someone is either gifting this to themselves or to a loved one FOR someone one else they love their pets! Its a couture piece of art with a modern look that you can hang in your home or stick on a pillow, write a note in, share with all your other loved ones that makes you feel good when you look at it.”
I am so in love with my tote bag! Now I can bring Theo with me everywhere!
My favorite is the iPhone case because you can show off your pets anywhere and everywhere without even trying! And let’s face it, we all want to show the world just how adorable our pets are!
The wrapping paper is awesome, but I might be jumping up and collecting the paper after the gift was opened!
Remember Mother’s Day is just around the corner, a custom pet portrait would be the PERFECT gift!

Very kool! We’ve been debating on getting more pet themed artwork we may just have to consider this!
I have portraits of all of my dogs, I love them! Now I need to get the i phone case and stationery!
Jen Gabbard says
Those are great – and I absolutely love your Theo tote 🙂 I could definitely see myself with a coffee mug with Laika’s smiling face on it; she does amazing work.
That would be so fun to have her smiling face on a mug!

I like that scottie pencil sharpener. If it was a Dachshund, and I still used pencils you sharpened with a pencil sharpener, I would get one for sure 🙂 The illustrations are cool too. I like the more abstract ones like that.
Carol Bryant says
WOW what a fantastic store. I look forward to checking it out and meeting you at BlogPaws!
Ooo la la! Those items are awesooome! I like them a lot. Great work for sure.
