This is always an exciting time for me in Kathmandu. I should be picking up the first signs in a couple of days and meantime I get to see the work in progress.
If you would like your pet's portrait painted on metal by these struggling Nepali signboard artists, please send me a photo of your pet to firstname.lastname@example.org. I will give that photo to 3 artists, giving you a choice of 3 and 3 artists work at the same time. You pay nothing if you do not like any of your portraits of your pet. The artists are paid fair trade wages for all work whether you buy their art or not.
They make the perfect gift. Order by August 1, 2010 for this trip.
The Nepal Art Dog Fair Trade project promotes the disappearing art of the Nepali signboard. Micro-finance through art patronage.
I have commissioned more than 1500 pieces -- making a difference in the artists' lives.
Stay tuned, as I will be picking up more signboards tomorrow, hopefully. Dogmandu!
