Live from Kathmandu: The final days

Live from Kathmandu: Sagar's Studio

It is getting down to the wire here and Sagar is busy putting on the finishing touches of his last batch of Danger Dogs.

Jackal, the Chiweenie (Chihuahua/Dachshund cross), is adorable in this final by Sagar.   He is truly a classic Danger Dog with his aggressive stance and teeth as he stands guard on his green turf.

Ringo the handsome young Golden Retriever is in a big circle, a common Nepali Danger Dog motif.

Tigger the Tabby Cat is still awaiting her final details by Sagar.   Here she is in a sea of orange.

Rocky the first Burmese Danger Dog by Sagar.   I know, I know, it was supposed to have been painted in Myanmar, but I could only find two signboard artist willing and able to paint Rocky.   Signboards are truly a lost art in Myanmar.   

Time has run out if you would like to order for this trip.   Next trip is tentatively scheduled for the end of October, 2013, returning the first week in December, 2013.

How to commission YOUR pet's portrait on metal:

Now is the time to order:   Be ahead of the Pack!   I am in Nepal right now giving photos to the artists.   Cut off for this trip's orders is May 20, 2013.   I will be back in plenty of time for Father's Day orders.

1. 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 people 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.

2. Let me know what you would like it to say.

3. Let me know what style of portrait you would prefer:   naive, realistic, colorful, etc.

4. Tell me your pet's name and breed.   

5. Send your photo to me at:  
That's it !

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!


The cost is $250 plus shipping.   Shipping is around $18 per sign (to and from the US).   And 9.75% California sales tax for California residents.  
Pay after choosing your portrait.  
Multiple pets on one sign cost more ($325 for Double, $400 for Triple).


Let's keep these artists painting.
