I know this is a long shot but it doesn't hurt to ask. I am starting a non-profit dog rescue and am looking for someone to donate a logo drawing. What we are looking for is a cartoon dog walking up right with tattered pants and suspenders, a hobo stick with bandanna bag over its shoulder. We want it to look cute and hopeful not depressed with a slight spring in it's step. That's kind of the picture we have in our heads. Is there any chance you would be interested in creating that for us?
I am coding a simple Drag-Match app for Android. I will release the codes at github.com later, so that others can build simple apps for their kids. And also, I am using your image as sample to building the data for the app. I hope you are OK with this. Let me know if you feel otherwise. Here's a a video. [link]
