Eye Candy Alert! 1960 Vintage Minerva Knitting Patterns with Dogs

If you are a crafter, sewer, knitter you have heard of Columbia Minerva as  you roam through the yarn and thread isles at a craft store. They were  early PupStylers and didn’t even know it!

Minerva understood the value of incorporating dogs in advertising and marketing to sell fashion. If a pretty model is holding a cute Maltese near here face, the dog just makes the model even more beautiful and harder to forget the brand. Right on Minerva!



Japanese artist Nagi Noda creates incredible animal hair hats

Tokyo-native Nagi Noda has always had a spot in our “doggy conceptual art” hearts – ever since seeing the insanely surreal short film “being appraised as an Ex Fat Girl” which featured a bizarre phalanx of synchronized exercising poodles we were hooked. This past April Nagi Noda had a photo shoot at Milk Studios in NYC where she shot a collection of animal themed hair hats. Dogs were one of the central subjects seen in 4 out of the 15 pieces featured. Dogs seem to be a recurring theme in Nagi’s work and we suspect the cute lil Chihuahua seen in the shot below is hers. In addition to the photos below you can visit Nagi Noda’s site to see the whole hair hat collection.


Painter Nathan Janes offers a new line of Dog themed Pop Art lithos

With the recent record breaking sale ($842,250.00) of a John Emms oil painting “New Forest Foxhounds” dog portraiture and dog themed art are all the rage in the art world. The dog-art auction gauntlet was throw down back in 2005 with the then record setting sale ($590,400.00) of the low-brow classic ‘Dogs Playing Poker’. What is an avid dog-fanatic/art collector to do if they don’t have a spare half million to drop on works of collectible canine curio? Check out the iconic and bold works of pop artist Nathan Janes. Janes offers an excellent catalog of his most popular paintings available as canvas reprints ranging in price from $475-$675. If you fancy your pooch as the Edie Sedgwick to his Warhol – you can commission a Pop Arf portrait starting at $5000.00. That works out to a small price to pay for a pop art interpretation of your modelic mongrel muse.
