DANGER DOG

My search for non-lame "Beware of Dog"signs turned up one gem: the NEPAL DOG website, which showcases and sells free-trade Himalayan folk art, mainly custom "danger dog" portraits hand-painted by artists in Nepal. You can read more about the project, started by Michelle Page of Santa Monica HERE. I love how quirky these portraits are and you can pick from a plethora of breeds. There's also paintings for horses, birds, goats and other animals. So weird and awesome! I'll add a portrait sign to my list of things I want to make next...

Hi, Liz.
Thanks for your kind comments about my Danger Dogs art project. It is a true labor of love. I'm leaving for Nepal soon, if you know of a pet that should be immortalized.
Doggedly,
Michelle Page
