About the "Sodding Dog" print
These light-hearted lino prints were inspired by a comment from my husband when I had given our dog (in his opinion) one too many cuddles!
They always raise a wry smile and make a perfect gift for Anniversaries, Birthdays or Valentine’s Day to remind your dog-smitten loved ones how you feel!
The Sodding Dog design is influenced by original 19th century show posters and fonts. The letters are all hand drawn and hand cut into the lino plates so the prints have a naive, homespun, folk art feel which makes them uniquely personal.
The print is also available as a greeting card.
I make custom vintage style frames for my prints. Whenever possible I use reclaimed wood and each frame has its own pattern of knots, dinks, scratches, nail holes, wonky edges and aged patina.
Currently frames are available in reclaimed cedar, hand-painted in Old White chalky matt paint. Frames are approximately 44 x 55 cms and are fitted with crystal clear acrylic ‘glass’. They come ready to hang.
These prints also fit very nicely into standard frames.
Either a standard 400 x 500 mm frame with a border (matt or mount) with an opening of approx. 300 x 400 mm - these often are supplied with the frame, for example the Ikea Ribba frame. (The closest standard imperial frame is 16” x 20” - with a matt/mount with an aperture of 11 3/4” x 15 3/4”)
Or use a standard 300mm x 400mm (12” x 16” ) frame without a matt/mount (you will need to trim off some excess paper around the print).
