Following the success of last year’s popular “Strike Your Fancy” matchboxes featuring cats drinking at the bar, I have released a follow-up set, this time with dogs! They aren’t getting drunk like their feline counterparts, but they do poke fun at the complicated personalities of us humans.
These matchboxes are printed by hand in my home studio using a custom-made registration jig. Each color is printed with oil-based intaglio ink using the unique woodblock printing process, which is illustrated in the video below. They even come with tiny certificates of authenticity that rest inside the matchbox tray!
