This is the inspiration for the Danger Dog fair trade art project. These beautiful signs are being replaced by generic signs. The Danger Dog project gives work to over 56 Nepali signboard artists and has commissioned over 2000 pieces to date. You can commission a portrait of your pet.

BE AWARE OF DOG signs from Nepal are one-of-a-kind, hand painted Fair Trade portraits of dogs commissioned by their owners and rendered in startling detail on metal. “Danger Dog” and other charming variations on the “Beware of Dog” theme are written in Nepalese and/or English, according to your specifications, and turned into a uniquely personalized work of art. These artists’ work is quickly being replaced by digital technology, even in Nepal.
Your pet’s portrait can be rendered in the naïve, almost primitive style that results in a “doggie mug shot,” or it can have a playful smile, a wary and growling demeanor, or a dangerous gleam in its eye.
In America as in faraway Nepal, these signs can be as effective as any alarm system, and are practical for indoor or outdoors.
This hand-painted art form is fast disappearing in Kathmandu, as it already has in most parts of the world. I pay fair trade wages, the artists get to paint again, pet lovers get a choice of three paintings for each commission, and I get to help Nepali artists make a living. Everybody is happy. Rescue dogs from America get to rescue artists from Nepal!
Be ahead of the pack. I am leaving for Kathmandu to order custom portraits of your pet in February, 2020. I will return in mid-April, 2020. Now is a great time to order. The artists need help more than ever since the April 25, 2015 earthquake.
The Danger Dogs make wonderful presents, as you can imagine. Order your Nepal Art Dog (or Cat, bird or horse) today.

HOW TO ORDER
To order, please send me a photo of your pet. I will give it to three different artists, giving you a choice of paintings and three artists will get work. Each painting is about one square foot and is on metal with enamel paint. These can be hung indoors or out, be framed or unframed.
Satisfaction is guaranteed as I accept no money up front. If you do not like one of the three, you pay nothing, and the 3 artists are paid in full in any case. Let me know what you want it to say and that's it!
