This animal lover has been painting pets dressed as characters from the hit TV series, Downton Abbey... but can you guess who's who?
The following works entitled "Houndton Tabby" were designed by artist Kim Parkhurst who painted them digitally using a drawing tablet connected to her PC.
The inspiration came from her love of drawing and Downton Abbey, which created some barking mad illustrations showing the animalistic side of Downton's most beloved characters.
