Paying homage to the classic American dog, the Mutt, Animal Blueprint Company, detailed, hand-drawn dog and cat portraits created in the original style of a 1950’s blueprint complete with schematics and design notes calling out the special features of each breed, has just added rescued American Mutts and Cats to its collection. Gift givers can find the new American Mutts and Cats, as well as over 60 dog breeds done in the company’s signature blueprint style online at www.animalblueprintcompany.com and in select retailers.
Giving new meaning to “barkitecture”, the artwork features a distressed finish to give them the look and feel of working blueprints used by architects, engineers and construction supervisors in mid-20th century. The classic renderings are perfect for animal lovers or those who want to combine style, design and nostalgia in their homes. A great stand-alone piece of art or as a collection, Animal Blueprints start at $110 with a variety of framing and matting options available and also make excellent gifts. Custom orders for specific breeds or individual pets are also available.
Artist Robert Redding was inspired to create the Mutt series after his own dog, Maddie, who is a mutt mix. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of each American Mutt print is being donated to local animal shelters throughout Southern California. Robert also recently added the cat series to the Animal Blueprint collection, featuring seven of the most popular feline breeds, thanks to the demand from cat lovers who had seen his work.
Inspired by a passion for animals, art and architecture, Animal Blueprint Company, is the creation of artist and graphic designer, Robert Redding, who prior to this latest endeavor spent more than a decade designing apparel for the surf and sportswear industry. Located in San Juan Capistrano, California, the company focuses on animal renderings drawn in the original format of blueprints used by design and construction professionals in the 1950’s. http://www.animalblueprintcompany.com/
