Four & Sons is a Melbourne-based online magazine about dogs and culture. In honor of its one-year anniversary editor Marta Roca decided to create a hold-it-in-your-hands-and-smell-the-ink newspaper.
This old tyme artistic endeavor is being funded by dog art lovers like us via Pozible. Your can pledge as little as $1, but if you pledge $10 you get a copy of the newspaper (and more goodies with bigger pledges).
As of today, October 23, 2012, $770 has been pledged for the $1,500 goal. The project is only funded if the goal is reached.
If you would like to show your support for Four & Sons and their devotion to dog culture please donate. If it's not in the budget simply spread the word. They have only six more days to meet their goal.
I learned about this project via another favorite dog-art wesite, HundKunst, written by Petra Hartl in Vienna. I think tt's so inspiring to see dogs celebrated in our society in so many cultures around the world. Donate today and become a part of this passionate, global, dog-art network.
P.S. If you donate you can add a photo of you or your dog by unloading the image to your Pozible profile. You can see Tyler Foote drapped in the American flag in the upper right hand corner. Petra's Rocco is the white dog two spots below him.
Vermont artist Anna Dibble emailed me to let me know her painting Trying to Get Along recently sold as a result of its exposure at the Strathmore: Unleashed! exhibition last June at the fine arts and cultural center in Bethesda, MD.
Strathmore used Dibble's painting on the invitation, and the Washington Post printed it in an article, and featured it in a contest they sponsored for kids that involved looking for cats in the dog art show.
Trying to Get Along, 8” x 10” mixed media on panel, sold for $775.00.
