Downton Abbey Revisited

Any television program that begins with a dog has our attention!  While it’s actually the backside of the dog (tail wagging and all) this is our first view when the opening frames begin for the marvelous British series: Downton Abbey.

If you are one of those rare people, out of the millions, who haven’t seen Downton Abbey, then you can safely skip this blog.  But for those of you who do love the series, this post is for you.

We posed a challenge to our consultant and photographer extraordinaire, Gloria Yarina, asking if she could use some of the main characters in Downton Abbey to illustrate the same for a new program, which we’ll call: DOGTON ABBEY (get it?).

We thought you would enjoy her visual representations of some of our favorite characters. So, without further ado, we present to you, our version of : Dogton Abbey

Robert Crawley, Earl of Grantham

    Yes, It was a challenge, like some better than others as I got into the whole theme of it.
    Love when Patricia suggests new ways to create illustrations for our favorite friend(s) the dog (s). 1st I take a deep breath for an idea, get on the floor with my dogs and than like magic, I design a new picture.

    Although I haven’t watched Downton Abbey, I loved the Dogton Abbey creations. It takes great imagination and talent (thanks to Gloria and Patricia) to create something like this.
