Danger Dogs from Nepal – Folk Art from the Himalayas

Jit Gurung

When I first came across Jit Gurung, he was at his desk working on a pile of illustrations. He is a serious artist who I sometimes compare to R. Crumb. Jit works in Pokhara, a resort town centered around a large lake in Nepal. I found him by admiring a beauty shop sign featuring a clear portrait of Angelina Jolie and asking around about the artist. He does wonderfully accurate portraits of people. Visit the blog at
