I'm already looking forward to the next Danger Dog trip in April and May, 2009. This time, I'll be able to walk and have couple of new areas to explore for artists. There is an artist in Pokhara I'd like to try. I noticed this lovely butcher shop sign drying outside a shop in the downtown district. It was too late to order signs from him for that trip, but I can't wait to find out what kinds of Dogs he will paint.
People often ask what happens to the extra Danger Dogs that they don't buy. One of the best uses I've found is to offer them to Silent Auctions benefiting various charities. I'm proud to say that the Dogs were part of the Los Angeles Inner City Arts 2008 Imagine Awards.
The Danger Dogs have moved into the Project Room at the Santa Monica Museum of Art! They looked great up there on the wall! The Museum had it's own special Joe the Santa, mulled wine and cider. But, best of all, they sold 2 Danger Dogs and 4 Obamas!
The Danger Dogs had a foray into Chinatown this week. And they really looked great against the Chinese paneling. The exhibit, at The Mountain Bar on Gin Ling Street, was sponsored by Elle Seven and the Urban Canvas crew, and they did a great job.
There was live music and 7 other artists featured in the large room next to the lounge area where the Dogs were set up.
I was able to hang 130 pieces, including my new ferrets and some cockatoos and an earringed rat or two in the corner.
Apparently all those Dogs acted as a baffle and the music sounded better than ever, according to the resident acoustic expert, Tommy.
Julie (above) sounded as sweet on that fiddle as she looks.
If anyone wants a last-minute Danger Dog, or Zen Hamster, for that matter, for a holiday present, it's not too late. Also, there is a large discount bin with paintings ranging from $120 to $200. Ask me about any particular type of pet at firstname.lastname@example.org.
