Well here we are, several years after the inception of this line! So much has happened since the beginning of it all. First of all my beloved Pico Sanchez is no longer with us and so I have a new found inspiration and need to give this project new life. Pico lived a happy and long life of almost 17 years despite his long list of health issues. This line was created to immortalize Pico and allow him to live forever through art. As an artist, I knew I had to do something to keep his legacy alive well after he was gone. Pico was an undefeated racing champion featured in magazines and newspapers, was s doggie model, and my forever art muse. Thanks for your support and for supporting this creative endeavor. Currently PICO n TOUS is carried by several local shops and offers products and merchandise on Etsy with new designs and a new product launch coming soon! Grateful to all the retail stores that represent the PICO & TOUS product line; Holistic Mountain Market, Blue Ridge Toys, Tallullah 1882, Hatch Camp and Art Farm, Clayton Ga. More locations to be announced along with all new designs!
What it's all about
My Name is Lizzy Falcon and I'm an artist. The real star of the show is my muse, Mr. Pico Sanchez. He is a 12 year old Blue Chihuahua, retired undefeated racing champion, my best friend, and now the subject of the art works in this collection. I used to dress him up in all kind of costumes, but he hated it. So, now we play digital dress up as I turn him and his girlfriend, Tous Tous Engelhardt into all the adorable characters we all love. It is said, if an artist falls in love with you, you'll live forever. As I see my little guy aging, I feel like this is my way of keeping him alive forever.
How it all got started...
Recently, a close friend of mine lost her buddy, a blue Chihuahua named Grayson. As an artist, I thought that the best gift I could give her was a painting of her little guy. As I was creating that painting, it made me realize that my own Chihuahua, Pico, is looking and acting older by the day and that there will be a day that I, too, will face the same grief. I often struggle with this notion so it's no surprise that he makes a cameo in my paintings from time to time (lizzyfalconart.com), but I wanted to do more to keep his legacy alive. I happen to be sick in bed that week, unable to focus on my other art projects, so I got to doing a few of these digital designs on my iPad. Each design kept getting more interesting and fun to make and now I'm kind of (totally) addicted to making more. I'm a such a fan girl of Alice in Wonderland, DC comics, Star Wars, Marvel, etc., so I thought I'd dress him up as all my favorite characters. Once you fall in love with a Chihuahua, you're hooked. Personally, I'm addicted to Chihuahua clothing, socks, mugs, stickers... basically anything Chihuahua. So, I decided to turn my own chihuahua into art and merchandise that other Chihuahua owners and lovers can enjoy. Since there are girl designs too, I included Pico's first love.. the beautiful Miss Tous Tous Engelhardt into the designs.
