Description

This linoprint is the fourth in my Year of the Dog series. The art celebrates the Shih Tzu, a dog of Chinese royalty known as the Chrysanthemum Dog. The artwork is inspired by ceramics and carvings of East Asia.

The print comes in three variations:
1. Simple black on white stock — just like Shih Tzus in real life!
2. Gradation with blue to dark-blue on off-white stock (it's inspired by Chinese ceramics)
3. Gradation with dark green to earth-red on warm-grey stock (like a tea-tan color) PICTURE COMING SOON!



About the series:
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 Shih-Tzu is the fourth.

Specifications:

The white paper (with simple black print) is machine made and has a smooth finish.
The other two papers are hand-made with a deckle edge.

This is a limited print; there are 12 made total.

Colors are mixed by hand and rolled into smooth gradients. Prints are individually pulled by hand from a press. Because of these manual production processes, please expect unique textures and/or minor differences in each print.


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

Each print will be signed and numbered.

FAQs

I have been commissioned to make custom orders and would love to make more. Please message me. :)
If your order is a gift, please mark it as a gift. The receipt will not include the price.
99% of the time, yes, because you decided you'd rather receive your order at work or you've forgotten to update your address since you moved. I have shipped to a different address for those scenarios no problem.

If you fall into the rare 1% in which you're asking if I can ship your order to Australia when your address is in the U.S., then the answer is no — because shipping costs are based on your address on file.
There is a manual process to everything I make. I cut fabric by hand and oversee each stitch sewn with a machine. Relief prints are made from hand-carved blocks, custom-mixed colors, and then are individually pulled by hand. This manual process includes zines — they all have something "done" to them, whether it's a cutout, paint treatment or a special fold.

You can expect minute differences across each item you buy. The one you own will be unique.
Rats are intelligent, affectionate and complex animals. But the world seems to only show them as vermin or sewer creatures. You see rats as Halloween decorations or biker club logos.

I couldn't find very much showing rats as cute or affectionate, and none at all showing what it's like to have rats as pets (loving the unloved, etc.) Whatever I could find was not very well designed.

So I've been creating things that show rats in a different, more accurate light. I am designing and making more cute rat things because the world doesn't have enough.
All orders will be shipped USPS First-class Package Service, with two exceptions:
1) Prior to your order, you convo me and make arrangements to use a different carrier or service. In this case, shipping costs will likely be added.
2) Your order falls below $5.00. In this case, your order may be shipped with another USPS service (such as First-class Letter or Media Mail).
