Today is National Dress Up Your Pet Day— but then, you already knew that. Now that you’ve got Crackers done up as a tennis dandy, why not snap a photo for Ben Lenovitz, pet portraitist extraordinaire?
You’ll find Lenovitz’s painting studio in the back of Fish’s Eddy, the eccentric dishware and household goods store in Union Square. His eye-catching style is a combination of folk, pop, and pup.
With a photo in hand, it takes just 15 minutes– and $120– for Lenovitz to paint your dog, cat, turtle, crab or any other animal. He’s currently taking a break but will be back at Fish’s Eddy (889 Broadway) after February 1. (You can pre-order here.) In the meantime, watch our video to see the Bob Ross of boxerdoodles in action.
