DogtownArtworks' Shop Announcement

About Dogtown Artworks: Cindy and Kirby Pringle create whimsical and unique "dog people" photographs using their own dogs as the models. The husband-and-wife team have been professional photographers for more than 30 years and have focused on "dog people" since 2002.

We actually dress our dogs up and take their photographs, and work hard to get the right expression to go with our concept. We then take photographs of human models dressed in the same clothing, along with the backgrounds. We combine the images to create "dog people" — canines with humanlike qualities.

Not only do we take all of our own photographs, we print them, too (except for the large canvas wraps). All of our photographs are printed on archival 11 X 14-inch matte-finish photo paper ($19.95) and simulate a mat (a white border around the photo). All photos come with a hardboard backing and fit in a standard-size 11 X 14 frame.

We also offer greeting cards, gorgeous 24 X 16 canvas wraps, folky canvas on wood pieces, and photo pins and necklaces. In addition, Kirby restores Native American photographs from the 1880 to 1925 period and we offer them as stunning reprints.

We are the authors of three books in the "Happy Tails" series. Our newest book, "The Butterfly That Would Not Fly" has been a big hit (May 2012) and our first two books are sold out.
