An artist who hilarious & # 39; flat doodles & # 39; of their three silly greyhounds shared has delighted social media users – who are now standing in line asking for their own sketches.

The simple & # 39; Flat Dog Doodles & # 39; Jay quickly won thousands of fans on social media in a few days; animal lovers who have sent the artist photos of their own dogs, ready to be turned into their two-dimensional best self.
The original: After 25 years of & # 39; serious art & # 39; artist Jay Cartner has become viral thanks to simple quick sketches of their greyhound Stanley
The muse: Stanley the greyhound in the photo, unintentionally inspired the now viral craze for Jay & # 39; s & # 39; flat dog doodles & # 39;
Speak against BoredPanda, Jay revealed that the sketches of dogs going viral have come as a shock because & # 39; no one was ever really interested & # 39; in their & # 39; serious & # 39; artwork.
& # 39; My husband, Grady, and I have three retired racing greyhounds. I have been making art since my first five year old art lesson. No one has ever been really interested in my serious things, but my crazy little doodles seem to make people smile! I have been drawing for years and greyhounds are perfect models. & # 39;
& # 39; Stanley was my first greyhound. He is eight years old. I adopted it six years ago and it was so wonderful that I almost immediately started promoting retired greyhounds. He is an absolute goofball, & # 39; added Jay to the beloved & # 39; muse & # 39 ;.
Fans: Pet owners have instructed Jay to make flat doodles of their own pets, such as Arnie the Boston Terrier, pictured
Personality: Jay believes that pet owners like drawings like Pippins the Whippet's, because you can clearly see the personality of the pet

Jay told the outlet that they have been making art for 25 years – but that this simplistic – but successful – style of drawing actually originated from the feeling that she was once stressed.
To relax, Jay took a few minutes to & # 39; goofy & # 39; Stanley to draw while he stretched.
After feeling at ease, Jay placed the masterpiece on social media – unsuspecting how widely admired the piece would be.
& # 39; I managed to make myself laugh and posted these sketches on Facebook in case someone else would smile. I had no idea they would be that popular, & Jay admitted.
Comments under the artwork on the newly established Flat Dog Doodles Facebook page show how popular Jay's drawings are.
& # 39; Your amazing drawings are exactly what I had to discover today. Can you do a commission & # 39 ;, an enthusiastic user from the UK asked.
& # 39; I want this on a carrying case, & # 39; another said, under a photo of Stanley the greyhound.
& # 39; Your art makes my day, & # 39; praised a commentator
& # 39; I think people enjoy it because our animals all have such wonderful individual personalities and these doodles illustrate these personalities in a simple and fun way, & # 39; Jay said.
Trio: A dog owner combined two photos to make this piece of their three beloved animals work together

Commission: Among all photos on social media, such as those of a dog named Walter, pet owners want to get their own mementos commissioned
Jay is inundated with requests to draw not only dogs, but cats, horses, guinea pigs, geckos, and even children.
& # 39; I have received many custom assignment work, digital doodle images, original custom doodles and custom canvas paintings. I am also working on producing and selling t-shirts and bags with custom-made doodle within the coming weeks. & # 39;
& # 39; People have asked everything from a book to a shower curtain, so I'm trying to figure out how these options can be made available to people they want. I also have ideas for a web comic! & # 39;

Smile: Jay said they know that the artwork is not suitable for everyone – but they are happy that the pieces make some people smile
& # 39; I like to talk to them about their animals and what makes them special and I try to make their personality shine through the drawings. & # 39;
& # 39; I also think our current world is full of stress and negative experiences. I have been told that my doodles offer something of a brief escape from the crushing weight of existence. I understand that my style is not suitable for everyone, and that is fine, & Jay said. & # 39; Art is subjective. I'm just glad I can make people smile! & # 39;
& # 39; I thought some people would get a kick out of it, but I never expected them to blow up like they did & # 39 ;, Cartner told The dodo.
Don't forget the people: some owners even ask to come into the frame themselves

Praise: Under this hilarious drawing by Norman, a social media user said: & # 39; OMG Norm … these drawings give me life & # 39;
All beings: it is not only puppies that have been given the & # 39; flat doodles & # 39; transformation, because owners of animals such as Sedric the gecko, also put the artwork into operation
