A Dog is the Best Medicine Print

Limited Edition Linoprint & Collage
A play on the idiom "laughter is the best medicine", I created this print in honour of a dog’s gift to make us feel better, whatever the situation.
Ask any dog lover and they will tell you how good their dog makes them feel. Whether we are feeling sad, grumpy, irritable or under the weather, somehow dogs have the ability to make us feel better about life.
My dog, Figo, can immediately smooth over any family rift — at the first sign of raised voices he comes rushing over wagging his tail and never fails to get us all smiling again.
How this print was made
This print combines collage with linoprinting. It is made from a collage of vintage, original medicine bottle labels. These are very collectable and have a wonderful array of old typefaces, both scripts and block letters. They are the lovely, aged, mellow colour of old parchment. It's not surprising that this print is often bought for dog loving vets, doctors & nurses!
I make a unique, individual collage of actual, original labels for each print, so every one is slightly different and completely unique.
There will only be 100 of these prints and each one is individually signed and numbered on the reverse.
Print size: 30 x 30 cm (12” x 12”)
