New Boston Terrier and Boxer art

The Cafepress shop will close in September. Please check out the new Zazzle store.

I've been able to work on a couple of photos of my guys a few minutes at a time here and there in order to offer new art to both Boston Terrier and Boxer sections. You can find the new Boston Terrier art here. And the new Boxer art here.

YOUR Boston Terrier, a star?? part two

I almost forgot!! I don't want to leave anyone out. I've gotten a few photos from folks that are too small...BUT, for those of you with small BT pictures, or if you just plain don't want to let me use them for the shop, but would like for my visitors to SEE them, feel free to post them in my visitors gallery! I don't use these photos for anything I promise. I know how frustrating it is not to have a website, and to want to share your baby's picture! :)

Also, if you'd like to send me something smaller for use on the ecard site you can do that too. Again, it would be used for nothing else (put for ecards in subject line).

In any case, it may be awhile before I can get to any or all of these....I am a chronic pain sufferer and my time on the pc these days is limited.
Thanks to ALL those that have responded so far, and thanks in advance to those that will!

YOUR Boston Terrier, a star??

Hi all!
For those of you that aren't familiar with my work, my name is Patti Meador, and I'm the artist behind Bostons & Boxers by Design and the Zazzle shop Boston Terriers and Boxers by Design..

The reason for my post is that I'm in desperate need of some new models! Though I could look at my Buster forever, I'm sure that with all the diversity of looks in the breed, some folks would love to see more of them represented! I am particularly in need of mostly white, brindle and the newer fawn/cinnamon looks, as well as puppies (we didn't have a decent camera when Buster was a pup), but I'm open to good photos of ALL Boston Terrier colors!

If you'd like to contribute, see here and attach the LARGEST photo available (not resized small for the web) and put 'for Cafepress shop' in the subject line. Please also include your name and address (if you want a signed print of the final design and photo credit!), pet's name, and the URL to any website you'd like me to link to.

For any photo I use (the clearer and cleaner the photo, the less 'work' I'll have to do and the better the chance I'll use it!) I'll give full photo credit, a link to your website if you have one, and a signed, printed 8 1/2 x 11" copy of the finished design. You can also order any item from my Cafepress shop with the design at COST (See a note about Zazzle here). I'd love to be able to send free t-shirts to everyone that submits a photo, but since I don't actually OWN Zazzle and have to buy the items in my own shop as well, I can't afford to do that on my disability income ;-)

By submitting a photo, you are giving me full permission to develop an original art work using your photo and use it as I see fit. You retain full copyright to your photo (I will not use your photo as is, but do an original work from it), and I the resulting design. PLEASE remember that 10% of all sales are donated to Boston Terrier and Boxer rescue!

Feel free to email me if you have any questions.

God bless you all. Now go grab those cameras! LOL!
IF you'd like, you can also see some before/after examples here.

LOTS of new Boston Terrier art!, and one Boxer design.

I give full photo credit and a free 8x10" signed copy of the finished product in return. Would you like YOUR Boxer to be a star?? If any of you Boxer people have photos you'd like to donate, email me! My boy Buddy has severe allergies, and though he's a willing model, he just isn't quite suitable these days with his hair loss and red face :(

The same goes for you Boston Terrier folks! I'm always on the lookout for good material to work with.

New Boxer art available with or without text!

Allbreed art shop closed

Unfortunately the source I used for most of the photos that I started the allbreed art from no longer allows Cafepress usage. I am disabled, and unable to get out and take many photos of other breeds, so rather than leave the shop open with just a few selective breeds, I've decided to close it. The Bostons & Boxers shop however WILL remain OPEN (thanks to the two willing models I have in my home, and the many good friends that have donated photos!).

I regret any inconvenience,
