From Sally Muir's "A Dog a Day" collection, which features different canines created in a variety of styles. Even with only a few lines, Muir has an uncanny ability at capturing dogs, instantly marking their breed & breathing character into their forms.
Observe the magical brilliance of Jackie Morris. She likes cats, Bjork, the madness of nursery rhymes and Blade Runner (obviously - who doesn't?). Not only is she an amazingly talented artist, but she's illustrated books for Ted Hughes, Mary Hoffman, Caroline Pitcher, Terry Pratchett (amongst others), and is a beautiful example of just how visually compelling language can be.
