Pablo Does Italy

April 12, 2009 at 2:34 pm 7 comments

pabloYou may recall a certain crocheted critter I created some time back, a pink striped dog I named Pablo. He hung around my shop for a while until one day he was magically plucked from obscurity and elevated to the mighty position of mascot. Mascot of what, you may ask? He is the face of a new arts journal/magazine in Naples, Italy called Hyde Park. The editors of this new publication found Pablo’s portrait in my Flickr photostream and requested his presence in Naples via Etsy (they bought him). Now he lives the life of an icon, a star, a mascot with Italian beaches and the life of luxury, oh what a lucky dog he is.

Since this is an Italian publication, it is written in Italian of course. I do notcover read nor speak Italian and I rely on bad web translations of their writing so I know I am missing out a great deal, but what I’ve read I have truly enjoyed. And I love, love, love their wonderfully imaginative remixing of my photos. The creative people at Hyde Park make me smile and bring me great joy to view Pablo in their hands.

This link will take you to a page with Pablo’s portrait remixes. Scroll down the page to view and click on the images to enlarge.

Click here if you are a Facebook member and want to see photos of Pablo in Italy. While you are there, be sure to view the videos, they are great fun as well.
