Just like the rest of our family members and friends, our pets help shape who we are. For those of us who truly love animals, we can’t imagine our lives without them. My beautiful cats and dogs have made my life richer and filled my heart with love. I would feel very lost without them.

 

And artist Yao Yao Ma Van As “gets” this. She understands. So she fills our world with lavish illustrations of us and our pets.  For the most part, these illustrations are all of us at one time or another.

Our Pets Are Family

 

Luckily, that’s more than true for Yao Yao Ma Van As. Her most popular illustrations include her cute dog, Parker. He’s the star of a series of illustrations she’s done about a girl and her dog. However, that’s not all — she also illustrates cats and other animals as well and has worked with many famous brands like Disney TV Animation, Warner Brothers Animation, Rick and Morty, Stoopid Buddy Studios, and Starburns Industries.

 

 

But the artist tells BoredPanda Parker is her muse.

 

“My ideas come from many different places, mainly my dog Parker is my biggest inspiration,” she said. “We adopted him almost four years ago and he’s been the center of our world ever since.”

She has loved art ever since she was a little girl, she recalls.

 

“I’ve been drawing since I could remember, but on and off, never really serious. I started doing these illustrations about a year and a half ago because I wanted to get back into drawing again.”

So how does she do the illustrations?

 

“I use Photoshop, normally start with a rough sketch, and then work in with the local colors, adding lighting as I go.”

It takes her about two to four hours to do each work.

 

“I’m constantly trying to push myself to do different things, so sometimes the trial and error take more time.”

Her artwork is luminous and inspiring. Somehow she’s managed to capture every aspect of our lives with our beautiful pets, as these 20 photos show us below. Enjoy!

 

You can find her work on Instagram.
