Dead Dog

 

This piece explores how death can be viewed. The dog is designed to be particularly cartoony in style and pose, using muted colours for its body in contrast to the bright colours for the pool and tongue. The piece steers away from using any colours that might look to gory and goes for more primary shades to make it feel more like a child’s toy or teaching aid. The dog is obviously dead but is presented in a way not to cause alarm or fear, more in a matter of fact educational way.

 

Released in 2013 at the first Toycon UK event. The Dead Dog's were one off individually coloured resin pieces limited to 5 in total and each coming with a print.
