what do you get when a guy, who all through his life has lived in 9 states, 15 cities and 22 different houses? throw in his love for pizza and a really cute dachshund.
you get mitch boyer – a photographer who loves photoshop and after effects as much as he loves his pet dog vivian.
his pet project (pun intended), titled ‘vivian the dog moves to brooklyn’ is a story of a pet dog who moves to the big city and realises she is the only giant weiner dog around. she then has to decide whether she will stay in the city or run back home.
through this project, mitch aims to help kids deal with big changes like moving. the book is 32 pages long and is full of beautiful photo illustrations, with the letterings and drawing done by valerie navarro. the style that mitch had in mind for the book, was a bit expensive as the story had vivian the dog travel across america. so to raise money, he started a campaign on kickstarter and got all the money he needed to produce the book, in just 7 days.
