The Hangdog story


meg indi moon smallerHangdog is the creation of Megan Anderson, writer turned artist with a thing for dogs.

A  journalist and editor whose writing has featured in Australia’s leading travel, food, home and lifestyle publications, Megan has a fear of ruts. Swapping words for pictures in 2012 seemed like a reasonable way to avoid one. Also, she sensed that others wanted a bit more playful, ironic, smile-inducing stuff in their lives, and set about creating something enchanting and witty and warm and comforting to those of us who hold the life view that dogs are the best people.

Hangdog art blends a doggish sensibility with a love of story – told in a few choice words. That story constantly unfolds on Facebook and Instagram. And since you can’t really keep a good writer down, there’s also some entertainment to be found in the occasional Hangdog newsletter. Get that here!

Hangdog artworks can be seen at exhibitions and various outlets around Western Australia. And in the Hangdog shop, of course. Due to time constraints, custom artworks are no longer available.

The Hangdog studio is in Fremantle, Western Australia, where Megan takes direction from her complex golden retriever, Indi.
