Paww-lice Dog

Blunder Road & Reedy Road , Oxley QLD
Drawing inspiration from the suburb and the different feelings I myself and others experience in this area, I aim to represent the feeling of safety and security as well as the fun. By exploring the safety of the police dogs in a cartoon, colourful manner, people are able to interpret my work in a fun way. In the foreground there is a police dog alluding to the Queensland Police Service Academy and background being a bird’s eye view of the Oxley golf course and dog paws leading up the box. The background is a hue of contrasting colour – the green (the colour of the area behind the box) to allow for the box to pop. After showing the police dog squad my design, they requested that the artwork be dedicated to the memory of one of their recently passed dogs.

Paws-itively awesome!

Brielle Dunkinson’s ‘Paww-lice Dog’ design was inspired by the nearby Queensland Police Service Academy and Oxley Golf Course, as well as her love of dogs. The streets around ‘Paww-lice Dog’ no doubt feel a bit safer with its formidable police dog in the foreground, and a bird’s-eye view of the golf course in the background. Brielle aimed to wrap up feelings of safety, security, and a bit of  fun, in her artwork – and we think she nailed the brief!
