Oodles and Oodles of Doodles

Posted in Etsy with tags , , , , , , on January 10, 2012 by kellyjcallahan

I recently opened a new Etsy shop featuring apparel with my designs. I am still “stocking” the store with designs… but never fear, if I have the design on my Flickr site, you can order it.

Opening the shop on Etsy allows me to sell directly to you, instead of just CafePress and Zazzle. It also allows me to sell a higher quality of merchandise that is handmade. The designs are hot pressed on the shirt with long-lasting and durable vinyl (by Dog Mom Dog Designs). The apparel is a heavy weight, ring-spun, and garment dyed. A variety of shirt and sweatshirt styles are available. If you have a special request, just let me know.

You can visit my new shop here.

New Design Line… The Elegant Dog

Posted in CafePress Designs with tags , , , , , , on August 10, 2011 by kellyjcallahan

Because I don’t have enough to do, I’ve started a new design line for dog breeds… The Elegant Dog. The design features a dog breed in an elegant, ornate script with lots of flourishes and swirls. I have three breeds currently on CafePress and with Dog Mom Dog Designs: the Border Collie, the English Springer Spaniel and the Labrador Retriever. I will be adding a few at a time, working my way through the breeds.

If you’d like to get one with your dog breed, just drop me a note, and I’ll put it on the top of the list. I will probably work alphabetically, along with special requests.

Jumping Sheltie

Posted in CafePress Designs, Zazzle Designs with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on July 11, 2011 by kellyjcallahan

This Shetland Sheepdog is in mid-jump is great for the obedience and/or agility enthusiast. It is now available in my Wry Toast shop on CafePress, CKC Embroidery, and Dog Mom Dog Designs, and Zazzle.

The Shetland Sheepdog, or “Sheltie” as it is commonly called, is essentially a Collie in miniature. He is a rough-coated, longhaired working dog, he is alert, intensely loyal and highly trainable and is known as a devoted, docile dog with a keen sense of intelligence and understanding. The Sheltie is one of the most successful obedience breeds, but also excels in agility, herding and conformation. The coat can be black, blue merle or sable, marked with varying amounts of white and/or tan.

Jumping Border Collie

Another special requested for an Border Collie in action. This Border Collie in mid-jump is great for the obedience and/or agility enthusiast. It is now available in my Wry Toast shop on CafePress, CKC Embroidery, and Dog Mom Dog Designs, and Zazzle.

The Border Collie is known as the “workaholic” of the dog world. Not only is he an excellent sheep herder, but this extraordinary athletic excels at obedience and agility. The Border Collie coat can be rough or smooth and includes any color in bi-color, tri-color, merle, sable or solid patterns.

The Swedish Vallhund

Posted in CafePress Designs with tags , , , , , , , , , , on June 22, 2011 by kellyjcallahan

By special request the Swedish Vallhund. Evidently there is a lack of Swedish Vallhund images for embroidery, so I moved it to the top of my list. It is now available in my Wry Toast shop on CafePress, CKC Embroidery, and Dog Mom Dog Designs.

The Swedish Vallhund (SV) is also known as the Viking dog. It is a small, powerful and fearless breed that has been used for centuries as a farm dog used for herding cattle and sheep. Their even temperment and eager-to-please personality make them a wonderful companion. The SV comes naturally with no tail, stub tail, or full curl tail. They have a double coat in a sable pattern, in any color from grey to red.

Update: I’ve also added two more SV illustrations, both stacked (one with a tail, one without).

Brussels Griffon Design

Posted in CafePress Designs with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on June 20, 2011 by kellyjcallahan

I’ve just finished up and added a Brussels Griffon design to my Wry Toast shop of CafePress. This design is also available through CKC Embroidery and Dog Mom Dog Design.

The Brussels Griffon is a wonderful companion dog that is affectionate, charming and curious. They are also intelligent and cheerful with a terrier-like disposition and is known for his almost human expression. This affectionate breed comes in a variety of colors, including red, belge (black and reddish brown), black and tan, or black. They are not your typical toy dog. They have an active indoor lifestyle and need to be taken for daily walks.

Foxy Finnish Spitz and a Walking Ball of Hair

Posted in CafePress Designs with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 21, 2010 by kellyjcallahan

I’ve just finished up two illustrations for upcoming National Specialties, which will be held in Vancouver, Washington… The Finnish Spitz and a moving Lhasa Apso. They can be purchased from CafePress, CKC Embroidery and a new vendor Dog Mom Dog Designs.

Dog Mom Dog Designs offers a variety of products including t-shirts, totes, glass etching. Her apparel and totes can be printed in ink or metallic ink… A very nice touch.

The Finnish Spitz resembles a red fox. It is a northern breed (i.e., Siberian Husky, Alaskan Malamute, Samoyed) with erect ears, a dense double coat and a plumed bushy tail. He is a lively animal, with a keen, intelligent expression and brisk, quick movement. Medium-sized, the Finnish Spitz comes across as an agile, workmanlike dog with no exaggerated or showy features except for his lustrous golden-red coat, which ranges from pale honey to deep auburn.

The Lhasa Apso is a small, hardy breed with a beautiful cloak of hair that parts down their back from head to tail. Their temperament is unique: joyful and mischievous, dignified and aloof. An independent breed, the Lhasa’s goal in life is not necessarily to please their master. Popular in the show ring, the breed also excels at activities that provide constant challenges, such as agility.
