Just bull terriers....... and the odd cat.

10 days in and no sign of presents, angels, christmas trees, holly wreaths, robins, snowmen - not even a chocolate............

Advent....



































Here's a view of the splendid premises that is the home of the club. Part gentleman's residence, part wishful thinking but a great place for a party.

Looks like it's already well underway on the top floor.....

Snowdog

Here's one I did earlier with apologies to the original Japanese master whose work I have adapted for bull terrier purposes....
See how well a bull terrier fits into any genre!

The natural choice....























Some researchers suggest that Napoleon in exile found comfort in the company of his bull terrier..........
Obviously the natural choice for a man who judged a person's dependability by the size of their nose.
Here he is aboard the HMS Bellerophon awaiting judgement on the terms of his exile...

Quality control....


I have just ordered my own tote bag from Society 6 in order to check the quality of the finished product and I am delighted with it. Nice fabric, great colour reproduction, well made - in fact much better than I had hoped!

Society 6 https://society6.com/product/terrier-bliss-blue_bag#26=196 showcases my work and applies it to items which I do not have the facility to produce - mugs, bags, larger size prints on canvas and more.

There is the added advantage that they ship from the USA worldwide which keeps the shipping costs down for those in USA or Canada. Sometimes they even offer free worldwide shipping (which is why I ordered!)
I usually post a link here or on my own website news page: http://www.bullterrierprints.com/news.html

Just announced! Free shipping and a further $5 off all my products from the Society 6 shop till November 8th @midnight PST using this link: https://society6.com/theterriersclub?promo=J6V732MRK6D3

Nutcracker Suite.......?























So much for the Sugar Plum Fairy.....

I love dreaming up my Christmas cards but sometimes an idea can be hard to make work.
Can eating the Sugar Plum Fairy be a suitable subject for a Christmas card? Just because this bullie and I are amused.
A hard nut to crack.....

This current problem aside, there is now a wide range of Christmas Cards to choose from at the Terriers' Club..... 8 new cards this year plus some favourites and maybe one more to come!

In the footsteps of the Impressionists...

Lucky me! I have spent the last three weeks in Normandy beside a river lined with poplar trees. In this area, the Impressionist painters found inspiration in the transient effects of nature. Monet strove to catch the ephemeral qualities of light on water, the morning mist, the glittering sea.
I too took my sketchpad. What did I draw? Bull terriers leaping through circus hoops of course.





























More to follow.......

Home needed.....











New home needed for lovely Maggie (currently in South California).
She was rescued from the dog pound on the last day before they were to put her down because she failed her "temperament test".
Something in her young life traumatized her and she is very afraid of other dogs. She redirected her anxiety on the leg of an unsuspecting warden and was given a death sentence.

Now she is safe, but in a kennel until a suitable home can be found. She is a lovely sweetie, but needs a calm and assertive human parent who can make her feel confident and protected (so she needn't worry about protecting herself!)

See more on her facebook page:

The Eco terrier....

I use Ecofont Vera Sans for printing my labels - it's composed of dots so that it saves ink. It's also very useful for terriers' feet..........

Production Line....






























Here they come! The new run of papier maché bullies is on its way.
Strangely, they seem to develop a life of their own before they are even finished and interact well with each other as you can see.
Just the detailing to finish plus the all important sartorial decisions about collars or scarves......

Storage Wars........























Bull Terriers have that enviable knack of being able to sleep anywhere.
Mine automatically assumed that pieces of furniture, boxes, shelving, baskets etc were for his personal use. Deducing from this that he might enjoy a kennel, I bought a stylish wooden model which I even painted a lovely blue. He only went in it once, giving me to understand that in his opinion it was a death trap.
Eventually wasps nested in it.......
