Famous Portrait Pun-tings

Recreating my all time favourite famous portrait paintings just for fun 🙂

I created this illustration series during my month-long break a little while ago. I loovee looking at classic paintings, especially the portraits one. I also loovee pets and bad puns. I decided to combine those three (classic paintings + pets + bad puns) and these came up.

What would the subjects from the well-known paintings be like if they were to be painted with pets?

The paintings are reimagined by adding pets while experimenting with puns. The titles of the paintings are pun-tweaked from the originals to match with their new little companions.

I had so much fun recreating those paintings and being creative with the bad puns attempt. I wish I could make more but my free time is pretty limited right now. I was even super busy right after the holiday break. TGIF!

Cheers to the first weekend of 2020!
