“How to Pick Up Bitches” was made by Dominique Harmon of Lubbock, Texas.
As she explains, “I had seen an ad for ‘men’ on some weird website that popped up in my junk folder and some smart mouth guy said something about ‘why would you want to pick up a bitch?’ Immediately, my mind went to ‘female dogs.’
I had another dog in mind but he was too big for my chair, so my assistant had a friend with a Boxer who was old. Therefore I knew he would sit still. To make the illusion of the dog reading, we covered the book with peanut butter and I put my reading glasses on him, and voila!” The image won the trophy for “Best Portrait of an Animal” at Texas PPA Summerfest ‘16.
