I've been designing various projects for over 15+ years. I've photographed and designed for my personal art and commercially for entertainment companies. The first concept character loosely came from this adorable little SAVAGE. I say "loosely" because obviously he does not smoke (nor should any pet), although, he does enjoy his canine specific CBD supplements from time to time. 
Below are just a couple retail album cover designs.
Photos and magazine layouts done by me.
