Danger Dogs are quite the hit at Nomad in Cambridge. They have been a howling success. Cambridge Canine added their voice to the pack.
Irish Setter by Santosh Shrestha, approx 12"x12" synthetic enamel on metal, available at Nomad.
The intent gaze of the Irish Setter is captured by Santosh Shrestha in this black backgrounded signboard with pink and white lettering. And a pretty blue nose.
Malachy the Pekingese, this year's Best In Show winner at the Westminster Dog Show, would be proud of this portrait of an elegant and well-groomed Pekingese with a direct gaze and beautiful coat. This sign is painted on grey baked on enamel.
By Vinosh, an artist that has since moved to Saudi Arabia to work as a manual laborer.
This painting of a Pug was not a commission from me, but an attempt for the artists to make some money while I was not in Nepal. Of course, I could not resist this beautiful portrait of a Pug against a green background, even though it was painted on plastic.
Many of my artists have requested to paint on plastic, but it is not traditional, so I have said no. This one is wider than it is tall as well.
You might notice that this one is sold. Better get on over to Nomad to see them all.
Sheepdog by Dilip Niroj, approx 12"x12" synthetic enamel on metal, available at Nomad.
This is a pretty Sheepdog, done in a folk art style by Dilip Niroj. The nice shadowing shows off the brushwork on this Sheepdog's hair.
Shepherd by Hari Timesina, approx 12"x12" synthetic enamel on metal, available at Nomad.
Bat dog by Hari Timesina is a fun portrait of a Shepherd with big ears! Hari has a style all of his own, and this is one of his best. Every artist who painted Bat Dog thought I meant to say Bad Dog. There are no 'bad' Danger Dogs!
Fudgy Joe the Sheepdog by Hari Prasad,approx 12"x12" synthetic enamel on metal, available at Nomad.
Fudgy Joe the Enlightened Sheepdog looks out at the world from a blue and golden background as painted by Hari Prasad.
Chewy the Yorkie by Amar, approx 12"x12" synthetic enamel on metal, available at Nomad.
Chewy by Amar Shrestha is a fresh and pretty portrait of a Yorkshire Terrier. Amar brings out the innocence of a dog and this painting is no exception.
As you can see, every Danger Dog tells a story.
This is the last post for the Danger Dog treasures that you can find at Nomad in Cambridge. Some signs never even made it to this blog before they were snapped up by the discerning Danger Dog lovers from Cambridge.
They seem to be selling like hot dogs, so if you are in the area stop by soon. Their address is at 1741 Mass Ave in Cambridge, not far from Porter Square. Be there or be square.
To see the Dogs in person, here is their website: www.NomadCambridge.com Tell them Michelle sent you!
Your pet too can be immortalized on metal by struggling Nepali signboard artists whose hand-painted work is being replaced by digital graphics. Find out how below.
Now is the time to order: Be ahead of the Pack! Orders now accepted for the Summer 2012 trip.
HOW TO ORDER
To order, please send me a photo of your pet. I will give it to three different artists, giving you a choice of 3 paintings and three artists will get work. Each painting is about one square foot and is on metal with synthetic enamel paint. These can be hung indoors or out, be framed or unframed.
While I am in Nepal, your pet will be featured on the Danger Dog Blog, as I stop into the artists' studios and document the works in progress.
Satisfaction is guaranteed as I accept no money up front. If you do not like one of the three, you pay nothing, and the 3 artists are paid in full in any case. Let me know what you want it to say and that's it!
Send your photo to firstname.lastname@example.org or find out more at www.NepalDog.com.
Let's keep these artists painting.
American Dogs = Nepali Jobs.
