Live from Kathmandu: More finals

Here we have Ploof, a new last-minute Danger Dog, as painted by Baba.   Ploof is a gentle Pointer mix.

And Ploof again.   This was taken in a dark aqua room, so Ploof is not as green as he looks in this work in progress by Megh Raj Thapa.

And Abba is a 13-year-old Doberman Pinscher.   When Baba first saw her photo, he exclaimed "This dog looks like a horse!"   This is Abba's first final.

Sam and Pearl are here in their final glory.   This pair of pit bulls are painted by Baba, Sagar and Dilip Niroj (clockwis from top left).   Which would you choose?

Wazoo may be 'Crazy in the Head' but he sure is cute in these finals by Megh Raj Thapa, Hari Timesina and Baba (clockwise from top left).

Wazoo's good friend is the Jack Russell Terrier named Homer.   Homer's finals are by Megh Raj Thapa, Hari Timesina and Baba (clockwise from top left).

Aubert the French Bulldog is charming in his finals by Sagar, Baba and Sufraj Khadka (clockwise from top left).

Karma the Shitzu is well represented here by Megh Raj Thapa, Sagar and Baba (clockwise from top left.)

The deadline is here.   Please send in photos for your order for the next trip.   I leave in early 2012.

This may be the perfect gift.   Give someone you love a portrait of someone they love, and in the meantime support this dying art form.

Now is the time to order:    Each commission I receive will be 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.

How to Order: 

1. Send a photo of your pet to me at

2.  Let me know what you would like the signboard to say.

3. Tell me which style of Danger Dog art you prefer, by giving me examples of signs you have liked on the website or just say whether you like realistic, naive, cartoonish or fanciful. 

4. Follow the Danger Dog Blog and see the works in progress, trips to the studios, the life and arts of Nepal.

5.  Decide which painting you prefer of the 3 and send me a check and I will mail you your very own personal Danger Dog (or Cat)!

If you are lucky enough to be in Los Angeles before the end of December, you can see 60 Nepal Art Dogs at The Loft at Liz's Gallery at 435 S. La Brea LA  90036.   Part of an exhibit titled "Fair Trade", a total of 28 artists are represented in the exhibit so you can get an idea of their varying styles.

The Craft and Folk Art Museum also features the Danger Dogs.

Also, at Bergamot Station in Santa Monica, stop by the Gallery of Functional Art and see some Dogs!  

New Stone Age on West Third in Los Angeles also has a good selection.  

Or you could order your own pet......
