Year of the Dog

The idea for the series came after finding a vintage box of identical bulldog note cards at a local Goodwill.
I drew over the top of them as an act of continuation/ vandalism. It was tremendous fun, so I drew my own dogs which the Electric Works Gallery then printed multiples of.
These I warped into different characters using 3 mechanical pencils and sparing white gouache. 
It’s a painstaking process of gradually building up layers of graphite to warp and overwhelm the character of the "underdog".
