Year of the Dog

Year of the Dog

March 24, 2018 - April 24, 2018

Year Of The Dog features more than 60 original drawings by UK-born, Northern California-based Gillette, who created the series over the course of a year and is now, aptly, exhibiting them at the beginning of the Chinese Year Of The Dog.

The idea began when Gillette found a box of vintage dog greeting cards at a local Goodwill. He drew over the top of them as an act of continuation/vandalism and found it tremendously enjoyable. He decided to draw his own dogs, and had Electric Works print batches of them with archival ink for his eventual series. Evolving organically, his drawings portray musical icons, youth subcultures, religious figures, and more.
