illustration meets interaction for the series of drawings created by russian illustrator valerie susikby looking at photos of dogs on instagram, susik has caricatured their image on a notepad, delineating their facial features and furry mugs. the colorful pet portraits don’t merely express a static expression however — each illustration playfully interacts with a human subject nearby. hands placed around the drawing pad merge with the flat pencil art on the page, connecting the person and pup in various scenarios and situations — one animal’s floppy ears are swung backwards by a hairdryer; chopsticks bring a treat closer to a corgi’s wide-open mouth; a french bulldog poses for a photo snapped by a nearby camera phone. take a look below to see the full series of interactive illustrations.
