Inspired by the complex personalities of close friends and family, Denver-based visual artist Ravi Zupa has paired humorous sayings with various dog breeds to create Strike Your Fancy, a series of woodblock printed matchboxes and prints.
“These are the people in our lives with complicated dispositions and attitudes who never fail to bring us joy, even when they’re jerks,” Zupa explains. “This new set of matchboxes is an effort to give the overly expressive, stubborn, supportive, unpredictable, confused and self important beings in our lives the recognition they deserve.”
Printed by hand using a woodblock printing process, the three-color matchbox prints come with tiny certificates of authenticity that rest within the matchbox tray. Each design is also available as an 11×17″ screen printed poster. Check out all the designs and snag one for yourself (or your favorite complicated human) at www.ravizupa.com.
