Uggie: 2002 - August 7, 2015

scriberia uggie

How could we resist the opportunity to honour Uggie with his very own scribituary?

This sparky little Jack Russell stole scenes and hearts when he took a starring role the multi-Oscar-winning film, The Artist. Hollywood has been home to a few four-legged legends over the years, but dear old Uggie, who died at the age of 13, was the first to have his paw prints immortalised on the Walk of Fame.

Our tribute to Uggie received a lot of love on Twitter, most notably from his Oscar-winning co-star from Water for Elephants, Reese Witherspoon.

A scribituary is, of course, Scriberia’s own take on the obituary, and they give us a chance to do what we do best. As a specialist animation, graphic facilitation and illustration agency, we believe in the power of pictures to tell stories and connect people to content and its context.

A life, illustrated in a way that balances fact with feeling, and story with style, is the ultimate challenge for us as visual storytellers.
