I was amongst 120 artists who were commissioned to design a pattern for the cut-out paper dog Gerald. Gerald is the mascot for the design studio Lazerian. All 120 Geralds will be on display in May 2013 in New York and will be published in book form too. You can purchase my Gerald here. More information about the project and exhibition here.
Your Dog Is Full of Dirty Diseases

Recent research has shown that sharing an ice cream cone with your dog or letting your cat nap on your face isn’t just unhygienic, it could kill you, shit-for-brains, so cut it out. A study published in Emerging Infectious Diseases in November reported that zoonotic infections—diseases transmitted between animals and humans—are on the rise, and some will make you so sick death will be almost certain.
These sorts of ailments are spread by parasites, fungi, bacteria, and viruses that originate not from pigeons, rats, and other varmint scum, but from within the warm bodies of our beloved household pets. According to Michael Day, lead author of the report and a professor of veterinary pathology at the University of Bristol, “as dogs and cats have moved from the barn to the bedroom, the potential for disease spreading to humans increases.” Michael predicts that the next global health threat could be a pet-borne zoonotic superbug.
