Jay Cartner became a real Internet sensation thanks to his hilarious sketches of his dog Stanley. Although, he has been drawing and painting his whole life, nobody really took his art seriously, until now.
“My husband, Grady, and I have 3 retired racing greyhounds – Stanley, Stuart and Kitty,” the artist told Bored Panda. “I’ve been making art since my first art class at 5 years old. No one has ever really been interested in my serious stuff, but my goofy little doodles seem to make people smile! I’ve been drawing for years, and greyhounds make perfect models.”
It all began when one day when they were having a stressful day, and so Cartner decided to do a quick sketch of Stanley in goofy poses.
“I succeeded in making myself laugh and posted these sketches on Facebook in case it might make someone else smile,” he added. “I had no idea they would be quite this popular!”
Now the artist gets a lot of requests to draw their dogs, cats, horses, guinea pigs, geckos and even children.
