The pet sketch that started it all.

In the process of finding my career as an artist, I one day sat down and drew just for myself. Of all the mediums and subjects I could choose from, I had been inspired to pencil sketch a portrait of my rescue dog, Jake. I then created a Facebook page, posted it and a friend and coworker reached out and requested one of her own. When presenting it to her at my day job, my boss saw it and asked about one for himself. When presenting it to him a customer had seen it and wanted a custom portrait for themselves as well. C.M.Maniet, after many years of searching, found her artistic inspiration right under her nose, a rescued animal companion whose name is Jake. Christina Maniet is a pet drawing artist who creates custom pet sketches at Pencil Smudge from emailed photos of people’s most loved furry companions.
