Happy 10th Birthday, Hamlet!

August 15th, 2013 saw my basset hound, Hamlet, hit his 10th birthday. That’s right, a decade of Ham! Ha. I’m currently situated in Chicago, and he’s in Florida with my parents. I miss the little bugger.

Greetings, friend. My name is Dre (or @dvsdre on Twitter). I am a visual creative in love with 30′s cinema, 40′s illustration, 50′s design, 60′s rock, 70′s funk, and 90′s rap. Chicago sports, dogs, and the Gálapagos intrigue me. Please enjoy my work.
