About the Book
Cartoon drawings of dogs that I started doing as a messenger in Boston in the early 80s. These eventualy became my logo for my current studio, sleepingdog studios. many of these were done while on the streets of New York while sipping coffee in various bistros around the village. Years later it finally occured to me to scan these, modify them and the result is this small book of prints which is my "Dawg period".
