As the ink dries out, we welcome you to the premiere issue of the Four&Sons journal, the print counterpart to our dog-centric digital magazine. This publication marks our first anniversary and celebrates the work of artists, designers and writers inspired by their relationships with man’s best friend. We hope you enjoy our selection of projects to, well, chew over.



To mark our first anniversary, we have unleashed our onscreen love in print.

The Four&Sons journal is a limited-edition souvenir. It celebrates some of our favourite artists from around the world, for whom their craft and canine companions are inseparable. Raw photography, psychedelic painting and black-and-white illustration—regardless of medium, their inspiration comes from the same, four-legged place.

Within these pages you will find arresting imagery and engrossing interviews that survey the bond between human and dog. In this issue we hark back to Peter Webb’s surf culture icon, Ghetto Dog; sniffle at Traer Scott’s plaintive photographs of shelter dogs and laugh at Theron Humphrey’s snapshots of his coonhound, Maddie, stuck in tight spots.

Time to wag our tails and celebrate.

Artists featured
Rachel Bellinsky, Dietmar Busse, Leo Cox, Ollie Grove, Theron Humphrey, Jo Longhurst, Andrew Pinkham, Mark  Peckmezian, Will Robson-Scott, Nadin Maria Rüfenacht, Carlos Sanva, Traer Scott, Sam Smith, Martin Usborne, Peter Webb, Nicolas Wilmouth and Anja Zaharanski.

Thanks to all our generous Pozible patrons and to Cloud7 for their financial support and faith in this project. Special thanks to all the artists featured in this issue for trusting us with their work. And to all the dogs for being such a source of inspiration and friendship.

A very special thanks to all the contributors for their time, invaluable support and passion for dogs and culture, and to The Good Copy for making the jump from the screen to the real world a whole lot better. My personal thanks to: Travis Garone, Josh and Samantha Gurrie, Petra Jungebluth and Todd Schulz, Penny Modra, Hayley Morgan, Sam Morgan, Francesco Nazzari, Nadia Saccardo, Christina Teresinski, Leith Thomas and the awesome Urchin crew.
