World Art Drop Day

Want the thrill of free art combined with the suspense of a scavenger hunt?

Brilliant illustrator and genuine nice-person Jake Parker instituted World Art Drop Day, which took place today, September 2nd. Hundreds (or thousands, not sure yet) of artists across the globe participated and it was

SO MUCH FUN.


Here's the skinny: artists, somewhere in their city, hide a piece of art. Then they post a clue on social media (for me it was Tumblr, Twitter, Instagram and Facebook), so their fans can go look for it.

I ended up hiding five pieces all around the Valley of the Sun.  Here are the clues:

Hint: San Tan Valley



Hint: Queen Creek



Hint: Queen Creek


Hint: Mesa



Hint: Tempe

If you decide to play and find one of these pieces, take a selfie with the art and post it somewhere on social media. Be sure to tag me and use #artdropday!

Vets love DawgArt

Over the years, I have been pleased to have DawgArt included in the decor of many veterinary clinics. DawgArt is bright, cheerful and inspires smiles. That's why it's perfect for a space dedicated to keeping pets happy and healthy.

Another animal hospital, the Briarwood Veterinary Clinic in Michigan, just finished putting up their DawgArt. What do you think?



Thanks for sending pictures, Briarwood, to help show how people around the world are displaying their DawgArt!

This is Dog

You all remember "Yes, this is dog." Well, I was very busy during 2011 and the years immediately after, so I wasn't aware of the yes-this-is-dog meme during the height of its popularity. I decided to bring it back today, to remind us of the silliness that ensues when a dog answers the telephone. Also, the silliness that ensues when humans have too much time on their hands.
