This two-color print is the first of my Year of the Dog series. It celebrates of the Yorkshire Terrier, a dog hailing from north England. Yorkies pack a lot of bark in their little bodies, so their history makes sense — they were developed to be ratters (omg!) in the wool and textile mills of Yorkshire that were common during the 19th century.

The white rose on top and the surrounding rose vines framing the Yorkie are symbols of Yorkshire and England, respectively. A cheeky rat among the yarn and thread below braves the imminent danger. Gritty textures throughout make me think of the industrial time period in which Yorkshire terriers came to be.

My Year of the Dog is a series of 12 works. The Lunar New Year is marked by the New Moon closest to spring (for 2018, that's in February). For that month, plus 11 of the following months of the lunar year, I will be creating one work celebrating a breed of dog. The Yorkshire Terrier is the first.

The print is on thick, slightly blue-ish paper that has visible fibers.

Prints are made from two linoleum blocks I carved with woodworking tools. Each print is inked and individually pulled off a press twice, one pass for each color. Because of these manual production processes, please expect unique textures and/or minor differences in each print.

Dimensions
• ~8 inch (~20,3 cm) wide
• ~11 inch (~27,9 cm) tall

For shipping, the print will be slipped inside an acid-free, archival protective sleeve and packed with a piece of sturdy board.

Each print is signed.

I was so excited to see that this artist had artwork of sumo and of one of my favorite wrestlers, Ura! They shipped out the artwork very quickly and was very well packaged. They also sent a bonus sticker which was super sweet. The artwork is beautiful and I'm excited to get them in frames to hang up. I hope they make more sumo related artwork in the future because I will most definitely buy all of them.

These stickers are so cute and seem like a really nice quality. I got them as a little surprise for my husband, so haven’t stuck them on anything yet, but I’m very pleased and excited to gift them. Seller was helpful and communicative- very quick to respond to my questions and very fast sending my items out!
