About the artwork

Crayon Design Studio's art dog

The inspiration behind our dog Klein came from a few different sources, but most importantly, we created him to be approachable and tactile with a sense of fun. His fabulous curly look was inspired by our own crazy-haired 11-year old wonder dog Saffy - who herself is actually blind. We also thought it was a great idea to introduce a hypoallergenic hound into the pack. His colour inspiration came from the colour blue used on the 18th and 19th century Willow pattern crockery. His name is a salute to the artist Yves Klein, whose own iconic blue is totally mesmerizing. Lastly, he also has a musical side with his own unique way of thanking the public when they donate, so please drop in a gold coin or a few for his chime of thanks!
