Live from Kathmandu: Final 3-of-a-kind!

DSC02190
Here at last is the handsome trilogy of Hutch, a Jindo mix, by Sagar, Megh Raj and Dilip Niroj (clockwise from top left).

DSC02188
The fabulous Neo, a Rhodesian Ridgeback, by Sagar, Megh Raj, Dilip and Sabala (clockwise from top left).   Neo's owner originally bought a RR Danger Dog at a Silent Auction benefitting Rhodesian Ridgeback Rescue, so I ordered 4 for her so that  I can donate another for the next auction.   This just makes her choice harder!

DSC02180
Corky the Intelli-Dog and his 3 choices.   Megh Raj, Sabala and Sanjib Rana (clockwise from top left).

DSC02189
Another Rhodesian Ridgeback, the late and lamented and lovely Chester is painted here by Dilip, Sagar and Sabala (clockwise from top left).

DSC02181
Last but not least is the Alsatian Sasha by Sufraj Khadka, Hari Timesina and Amar Shrestha (clockwise from top left).

How does anyone choose?

Orders are now closed for this trip.   Thanks to all of you who have participated in the Danger Dog Art Project.   Over 1700 signs have been produced to date, and every one was a labor of love.

However, I will be offering a variety of pets from the collection.   Contact me at ampage1@gmail.com for any requests.

Each commission I received was given to 3 different Nepalese signboard artists, giving 3 struggling artists Fair Trade work and you a choice of 3 colorful paintings on metal!  

Your satisfaction is guaranteed as I accept no money up front, only if you like one of the portraits do you pay.   The artists are paid fair trade wages whether you buy or not.

More information and examples of the Nepal Art Dog project can be found at NepalDog.com.

 I'll be going back next year around May/June so order now!

Live from Kathmandu: Works in Progress by Sanjib Rana

DSC02065
Sanjib Rana's portrait of Rocky the three-legged cat is almost too good to spoil with lettering.

DSC02066
Here is Corky the Chocolate Lab by Sanjib Rana, awaiting the final lettering.

Sanjib is the only one of my artists that was not originally a signboard painter.   He had never painted on metal before, only canvasses and murals.

DSC02062
Here is a work in progress of Zeke by Sanjib Rana.   Sanjib works at midnight and with the lack of electricity here in Kathmandu, he painted Zeke more black spotted than brown, but he is going to fix that!

DSC02064
Tom and Otis are Enlightened outside their car, as painted by Sanjib Rana.   That Otis is one beautiful and big Great Dane!

Live from Kathmandu: Three of a kind!

DSC02032
The final Louie, Louie by Raaz Rai, Sufraj Khadka and Krishna Dimal (clockwise from top left).

Louie must have good karma in order to have gone from the streets of Mexico into the annals of the Danger Dog oeuvre and into his loving home in San Diego with a big-hearted woman.

DSC02030
Sid and his final three are by Sagar, Dilip and Amar (clockwise from top left).   Who could choose?

DSC02037
The boys, Lion and Walter, seem to be enjoying themselves in their Double Dog portraits by Ram Krishna, Amar Shrestha and Sagar (clockwise from top left).

DSC02031
Mr Deeds, a Great Danger Dog, here as painted by Raaz Rai, Sagar and Amar Shrestha.   Another very hard choice.   Sleeping puppy or majestic dog?

DSC02033
Every one of the artists kept Roxy's photo, hence you will have to imagine that she looks exactly like her portraits!   Amar Shrestha, Dilip Nirof and Sagar all painted the lovely Roxy.   (clockwise from top left)
