Adopt-A-Pet in Dog's Life

The Spring 2009 issue of Dog's Life magazine features the good work of Adopt-A-Pet, the Shepard Fairey image created for the organization, and the upcoming art show in Los Angeles.

I am really excited about the organization, which, as the magazine says, "helps shelters, humane societies, SPCAs, pet rescue groups, and pet adoption agencies advertise their homeless pets to adopters for free. Over 1,500,000 unique visitors a month search by zip code and other preferences to see photos and descriptions of pets for adoption in their area."

I am also excited because I am putting a piece together for the show!!! And because Ron English will also be creating a piece for the show!!! If you are not familiar with Ron's work, he is the mastermind behind Popaganda and the artist who created "Abraham Obama", a painting with Abraham Lincoln's head and Obama's face. I have a silkscreen of the design that was released by Upper Playground and also bought a larger version at the Manifest Hope show that was done in Diamond Dust by Richard Sheridan, who used to make diamond dust prints for Andy Warhol. I am just blabbing on and on at this point, but needless to say this show is going to be ridiculously cool.
