Last trip particularly, there were many commissions that starred pets named after famous musicians.
It all started with Mick Jagger. His is such a stunning pose that I have given his handsome mug to many artists. This is Mick by Sabala studios.
Another view of Mick Jagger by Punam of Pokhara. Punam painted this portrait in 2007 with his left hand in a cast. I truly believe that Punam should be an animator for Disney.
Ziggy Stardust by Sabala. Ziggy's kaleidoscopic eyes seem to follow you to all corners of the room.
Ziggy by Hari Timsina. Very nice whiskers. This is the first time that an artist has dated a painting for me.
Gracie Slick by Sufraj Khadka. The aqua background with the shades of coral calligraphy and edging give this piece a charm. Her polkadotted collar with the heart locket is prominently featured.
What would the world be like without Elvis the smiling dog? Elvis by Amar Shrestha.
Frank Zappa by Sufraj. This portrait of Frank seems to come off the signboard.
He shakes my nerves and he rattles my brain... Jerry Lee Lewis by Sabala. This incarnation of Jerry Lee is in Soho at the OK Harris Cigar Store on W. Broadway near Broome. Go in and buy him!
Here is Jerry Lee Lewis by Hari Timsina. The artists enjoy the teeth and gum on this Danger Dog.
The Danger Dogs featured above are available with the exception of Elvis. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more.
I am due to leave again for Nepal in a few weeks and will be accepting new orders until mid-July.
Please send me your photo of your pet, tell me what you'd like it to say, which artists you prefer and I will give that photo to 3 struggling Nepali signboard artists who will paint your pet on (often) recycled metal about one foot square, using synthetic enamel paint.
Satisfaction is guaranteed, as you pay nothing up front and only pay after you choose a portrait of your pet that you like. I will be back from this trip about mid-August.
