Here's Amar copying the iconic Shepherd Fairey poster. I have also given him a photo so he can do his own version. And Govinda is painting his Obama on plywood. Here's his early sketches of Obama above and some pups below. And the final Jerry series is here. What a difference an artist makes. These could not be more different! Jerry by Nabin, Hari Prasad and Sabala (clockwise from top left). And last but not least, more inspiration: Anyone still wanting to order their own Danger Dog should get their order in soon. That paint has to dry! Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
More multiples are in. If these were your pets, which would you pick? Rico the Chow by Sagar, Asha and Sabala (clockwise from top left). All the artists noticed the black tongue without being told. And here's the lovely G.G. by Hari Prasad, Asha and Hari (clockwise from top left). Here's the final three of the Lion King. By Ram Mohan, Asha and Sabala (clockwise from top left). More cats! Meow by Shantos, Fuzzbie, Avoidable Cats and Grey Cat all by Sabala (clockwise from top left).
I've ordered paintings of Obama from 10 of my best artists and the first results are in! There will be a show of the Obama series at the Santa Monica Museum of Art in December. Stay tuned for more info as to date and times. I've finally met the fabulous Sabala and his son! He has finished 3 Obama portraits. It's a funny thing... I've always been told that Sabala was an 'old man'. Of course, he's younger than me! And very nice. His son is shy and very polite. And Surya (above) is like a proud papa. Many Nepalis have a surprising cynicism about our new president. They often express hope that all is as good as it seems. Maybe this isn't so surprising when I watch their politics. Sufraj did a great job as well. And below: an Obama by Sabala after Shepherd Fairey: I'm proud of these guys. And of Obama.
