Custom 3-D Pet Requests

For many years, Ralph Sutton has dazzled onlookers with his uncanny ability to create caricatures of both famous movie stars, as well as people’s own prize possessions: their pets!
A few years back, a lady asked Ralph if he could do a 3-D of her Yorkie. He asked for a picture of the dog and proceeded to mock-up a caricature, complete with his own interpretation of the pet’s personality based on the photograph. From there, he created the custom 3-D artwork, placed it in a shadow-box frame and RSAD’s “Custom Pet 3-D Framed Art” was born.
Well, it was a tremendous hit! The lady loved it and was quick to tell her pet-loving friends. Ralph has hand-crafted, cut out of paper, hundreds of these custom pet 3-D’s over the last few years as word-of-mouth has proven once again to be the best form of advertising.

If you have a favorite pet and want to have them forever etched in your memory in the form of a “one-of –kind” piece of 3-D artwork by Ralph Sutton, here’s what you do:

  1. Send us a color photograph of your pet along with its name and breed (“mutt” is a breed, too) via email to or snail mail to: RSAD, 2 Bowline Ct, Hilton Head Island, SC  29926.
  2. Once we receive the photo, Ralph will create the caricature of your pet that he will ultimately work from to create the custom hand-made 3-D image. We will send you a copy of the caricature sketch for your review and approval. Our standard 3-D is 10” x 11” with a plexi-glass cover, paper matting and a custom shadow-box frame.   
  3. Once approved, you will need to submit a check for $195 made payable to Ralph Sutton Art & Design. Estimated time for completion is roughly 3-4 weeks. You will be notified when it’s ready to ship. Shipping is included in the price.
  4. If you have questions, please send an email to and we’ll respond within 48 hours.
