Local artist Megan Anderson, aka Hangdog Art, has a thing for dogs. So when Guide Dogs WA invited Megan to collaborate on a limited edition merchandise collection, she was all ears!
“I’m always happy to support an organisation that puts dogs and people together! Dogs are the best people, after all, and for the vision impaired, they’re life-changing. I love the work that Guide Dogs WA does to bring such sensitive, intelligent pooches into the lives of those who need their assistance,” said Megan.
The collection, inspired by the Guide Dogs themselves, is “designed to be worn and used with love and a warm grin – as well as some good style sense!”
The limited edition collection has something for everyone, including t-shirts for both men and women (blue or grey), doggy bandanas (blue or yellow) and a fabulous tea towel you might want to frame instead of dry dishes with!
“All the images I paint tend to have a distinctive ‘Hangdog’ feel: fun, knowing and understated, with a bit of a ‘naaawww’ reflex built in.”
“Guide Dogs make a perfect fit for the Hangdog treatment. They’re beautiful and clever, with a fair bit of attitude as well. I’ve tried to capture the mix of dignity and adorableness that Guide Dogs have in spades. It was a pleasure to try and capture that mix of Labrador traits for the new merchandise range.”
This exclusive merchandise will be available for sale on International Guide Dog Day at our various merchandise stalls across Perth. Numbers are extremely limited – but you can make sure you get in early by purchasing yours online now!
100% of all proceeds from Hangdog merchandise sales go directly back into the Guide Dog program, so you can not only look fabulous, but feel fabulous knowing that you’re helping to train the next generation of life-changing Guide Dogs in Western Australia.
