A Dog's Life with Anna Webb joined by David Vozar on Chippy the Dog
This week David Vozar joins us to talk about his inspirational Chippy - the little white 'webtoon' pup who has spread joy, kindness, and positivity to billions of people globally for over a decade in the world of GIFs.
David is Chippy’s official ’scribbler and draws on his memories of his childhood dog. After many years working in publishing he returned to his true love of drawing and taught himself animation. In an effort to push back on all the negativity in social media he thought that bringing Chippy each day with messages of unconditional love would resonate with people.
David continues to live in New Jersey and has worked in publishing for more than forty years. He has three picture books for children including, Yo! Hungry Wolf, M.C. Turtle and the Hip Hop Hare and RAPunzel, all illustrated by Betsy Lewin. His first two Chippy the Dog books, If Chippy Was Your Dog and 100 Ways to Love You, were self-published and is thrilled with the new editions as well as a new daily Chippy calendar coming from Sourcebooks in October.
