Perfect Christmas Present for a Dog Lover

Fancy some dog-inspired New Year’s Resolutions for 2013?

My new print in the Enlightened Hound’s Canine Wisdom Series makes a great Christmas gift for any dog lover.

Canine Wisdom print No5

  

The typographic linocuts feature uplifting and quirky ‘dog secrets for happiness’ using authentic 19th century fonts from the American Wild West and Civil War era, to convey each dog mantra in a nostalgic, vintage style.

Each letter is carved by hand into the linoleum printing plates which are then hand printed using traditional linseed oil inks, mixed into a palette inspired by early colonial colours.

Here are the 5 prints in the series pegged up in my garden!

Back in the studio

I am now back in my studio after a break for house renovations and website development! It feels good to pick up my linocutting tools again and get back into the rhythm of cutting a new plate, with my portuguese water dog, Figo, lazing nearby.

 

I am cutting the plate for the next Enlightened Hound Canine Wisdom print ~ No.5. It is already available as a greeting card and is a popular one. I have had several emails asking when I am going to make a print of this one. It should be available early December so will make a great Christmas present for any dog lovers out there.
