Have you ever wondered where your dog’s ancestors lived? Illustrator Lili Chin has created a cute way to answer those questions with a poster series called “Dogs Of The World,” which features more than 200 dog breeds, classified by their places of origin. Cute doggies and an educational experience in one beautiful package!
Although she just finished this series, Lili Chin is already working on a new project called ‘The Mutt Collection.” She states on her Etsy page that she is thrilled by the success of her posters and maybe, if she receives enough support, she might do a cat breed series too!

“I created the ‘Dogs of The World’ series for fun. The pet portraits that I do on commission began 7 years ago, as a fund-raising effort for Boston Buddies Rescue, which is where I adopted my dog Boogie.”
“I still donate a percentage from pet portrait commissions to dog rescues every year. I also illustrate books and infographics for force-free dog trainers, vets and dog-related companies, when I am not working on my own art projects.”
“The Dogs of The World series started when I was researching Asian dog breeds for another illustration project. I started drawing Asian dogs (shiba inu, pug, chow chow, etc).”
“I was having so much fun, that I got carried away and found myself researching and drawing dog breeds from other countries. I was very fortunate to have the internet as my image research library and a consultant-friend with a Masters in Ecology, Evolution and Animal Behavior.”
