Dog Idioms: Delightful Dog Diction

Dog-idioms-poster-knowsters
I was browsing the site Dog Milk today when I saw a post about this cute poster of dog idioms by Knowsters!  We've all heard the saying "sick as a dog", or "a dog and pony show", but now they're illustrated and organized on a poster for your enjoyment.  Great idea, and it would be even better if you could chose between a few breeds.....like a dachshund maybe?

As long as I was there I searched around the other prints on the site and found these two by Nick Scalfittura.  I love the colors in the top print, Dogs With Newspaper, and the artwork is reminiscent of a woodblock print which gives it more of a hand-pressed look.  A little more research showed that his tessellations rate very high in subject recognition and the details are very discernable, which is highly praised in this style of artwork.

For a more vintage look there are posters by Chad Otis like the Langerhund print for your cheese-loving hounds, or the cute Boston Terrier Huddersfeld print for that little treat to go with your coffee in the morning!  Speaking of coffee, take a look at this fabulous series of how-to's from Monkey See on how to make the perfect latte. It's quite interesting, informative, and artistic- not to mention it makes you want to drive to Maryland just to have Greg make you a cup!
