In the heart of the canvas lies a majestic, full-bodied black dog. His coat, while dark as the depths of the night, glistens with an array of blue and gray strokes, a testament to Vincent Van Gogh's unique and passionate style. The dog's floppy ears, slightly drooped, symbolize the weight of time, as tales of his years lie etched into the very fibers of his being.
His soulful eyes are filled with a sense of melancholy and wisdom. It's as though they have witnessed the spectrum of life, from the frivolity of puppyhood to the somber introspection of old age. Turning over his shoulder, the dog seems fixated on one of the two radiant orbs of light in the sky, the entrance to the Rainbow Bridge. These balls of light, entrances to what is next, are painted with fervent brushstrokes of yellow, and emanate an ethereal glow against the swirling cerulean backdrop, reminiscent of Van Gogh's iconic "Starry Night."
The road on which the old dog rests converges into the distant horizon, a subtle nod to the concept of vanishing points in art. This road, textured with an assortment of blues, browns, and golden hues, speaks of the journey of life, with its inescapable end.
The swirling patterns of the blue sky seem to be in motion, a stark contrast to the dog's stillness, emphasizing the passage of time. It feels as though the world is moving, and our black dog, having lived his days, is now pausing to contemplate his journey and what lies beyond.
"Vincent's Black Dog" is not merely a painting; it's a poignant narrative of life, time, and the inevitable end that awaits every living being. Through a style reminiscent of Van Gogh, this artwork delves deep into the viewer's soul, prompting introspection about existence, aging, and the indomitable spirit that lies within every creature.
In remembrance of Jackson, the bestest Good Dog ever.

All-Over Print (AOP) is a printing method that uses dye-sublimation to print a design onto polyester. During the dye sublimation process the dye is absorbed into the fabric. Since, it is not printed on the surface, like most t-shirts, it provides for a fantastic soft-to-the-touch feel and superior breathability.
AOP is a more time consuming method than screen printing or direct-to-garment (DTG) printing, so the prices are higher and the production times are longer, but the results are most definitely worth it.
Advantages of AOP:
The design won't peel off, unlike typical screen printing.
The design is part of the fabric of the item, so it will last as long as the item does.
The intensity of color is often unmatched.
Giclée (pronounced zhee-CLAY or often gee-CLAY) is a printing process that creates a museum quality, archival print. Special acid-free, paper is printed with fade resistant ink using a state-of-the-art, large format inkjet printer.
Gallery wrap is a style of displaying a canvas that doesn't show any visible staples or nails holding the fabric to the wooden stretcher bars. This style of canvas is intended to be hung unframed.
Mirrored edges (mirror wrap) is used to show the whole image on the main surface, rather than printing the edges of the image on the sides (image wrap) of the canvas frame. It is usually used when there is necessary detail on the edges of the image. Image wrap is used when the focal point of the image is in the center.
