Kim was commissioned by Bob Banting of the Sir Fredrick Banting Legacy Foundation to produce a portrait of “the most important dog in the world”. Marjorie is the celebrated canine who worked with Frederick Banting to first prove that insulin would work. Before her, diabetes was considered a death sentence. One might consider Marjorie to be the diabetic’s best friend. Kim created the portrait based on photos of Marjorie on the roof of the University of Toronto and prints can be ordered from the Sir Frederick Banting Legacy Foundation.
