Description

This print is for all the Labrador Lovers out there… and I know there’s a lot of you, as the Labrador is the number one breed in both the UK and the USA… and now I know why!

I had great fun researching the Labrador breed history for this latest print. They really are the most wonderfully versatile dogs and they definitely deserve their status as Top Dog (my Portuguese Water Dog can fortunately never read of my disloyalty!).

Despite often seeing Labs as assistance dogs, it was not until I researched the breed in more detail that I realised just how many different ways Labs have been trained to help humans. These steady, soft-mouthed, warm hearted and waggy-tailed dogs are the perfect companion for so many people.

The prints combine hand drawn lettering with illustration and they are each hand printed on my press in a chocolate brown ink and individually signed.

They will fit happily in a ready made frame, like the Ikea Ribba (52x52cm square frame with matt/mount included) or they can be bought in handmade reclaimed wooden frames from my website at www.theenlightenedhound.com (UK shipping only for framed prints).

Paper size is approx 305 x 305mm
Image Size is approx 190 x 240 mm

Inspiration

These prints combine hand drawn lettering with illustration. I was inspired to tell the story of different dog breeds using a dog tag design. I am fascinated by the history and unique characteristics that define particular breeds and I wanted to celebrate that uniqueness by creating dog breed specific prints.

The dog tag idea came from thoughts about the plight of dogs in rescue centres and shelters. I imagined that they might be wearing a dog tag that helped prospective owners find out more about the dog in the hope that they might be rescued and given a ‘forever home’. There’s a bit of the children’s character Paddington Bear in this project too - the lost bear with a luggage label attached - entreating its finder to 'look after this bear'.
