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.

    Start your alternative treatment by eating lean foods that are not processed.
    Then we compound the problem by flooding our bodies with huge quantities
    of sugar. Hundreds of thousands of limb amputations have been performed on diabetic patients in order to
    save their lives.

    They have that re-charging ability that most
    western fitness methods lack. The boxers use boxing shoes to fight all through the time of boxing.

    A boxer or non professional player should always wear hand wraps before
    wearing boxing gloves.

    Some current or former individuals will compose their assessments
    really described. The lengthy list of points you can learn from these wonderful evaluations include the comfort of
    the treatments, experiences with the personnel, as well as basic
    information such as workplace hours and place.
    Consider it in this manner: You are contributing a social work by supplying the info in your reviews.
    Furthermore, if you compose a good assessment for a dental
    practitioner’s office, it is specific that the dentists and staff will certainly value your initiatives
    and also time.

    He or she seldom prospers without a modicum
    of grace which overcomes the crippling assumption tnat he hasn’t the ability to attract love, to win life’s goiod things and live joyouslly without using mood altering drugs.

    Recent trends in the fertility field prefer an ovulation induction that uses fewer medications
    and produces fewer but better quality embbryos than an ovulation induction that
    uses significantly higher doses of medications. The brain is incapable of storing oxygen, and so it nesds a
    constant supply of it.

Finding Shelter

Finding Shelter is not a shelter dog project—it is a people project. And just like all of Jesse Freidin’s dog portraiture, at its core, is simply about relationships.


Under the cover of darkness

Death and wilderness play a key role in Lorna Evan’s haunting photography.


Best of breeds

Sipke Visser’s new book lifts the lid on the fascinating world of dog shows.



George is more than just John Dolan’s best friend. He is John’s inspiration and saviour. Howard Griffin Gallery’s current exhibition, John and George, pays homage to their friendship.



Ceramicist Ben Medansky and his sidekick Banjee
takes us behind the scenes of their Los Angeles studio.


Issue One — Available now
