A project spawned by my love for my own 2 PitBull "Babies"... Most of the dogs featured I have stumbled upon on the pages of the internet. Links to their stories will be included for further information. Art items are for sale in my ArtsyBullies etsy shop... Portions of the proceeds will be donated to Bully Rescue/Organizations.

Art Prints

Due to the success and great response to my ACEO cards on the Facebook page, and in my Etsy shop. I have also decided to put the artwork up for larger prints.

Clicking the picture above will bring you to my Fine Art America store!

So far since January through your help and this project we have been able to donate a little over $500 to dogs in need! Thank you so much for your continued support!!! I also have some T-shirts in the works... I know I have some in my Cafe Press shop.. however these will be a special run, Olive/Military green with a brassy printing! Stay tuned!

#35 "Milo Bartok"

#35 Milo Bartok
3"x5" Acrylic on wood.

Milo needs a new home! Won't you help? Here's what is written in the note on the Pinups for Pitbulls Facebook page:

"Meet Milo Bartok! He really needs our help finding a foster/adopter/rescue ASAP! He's a healthy, young (~2yo), energetic neutered male AmBulldog mix in need of rehoming due to his family undergoing a personal matter unrelated to how wonderful Milo is. Milo is a well adjusted dog who adores people and attention . He's a very smart dog, highly trainable and eager to learn! Milo has been spending extensive time in his crate and needs a new home where he can flourish and stretch out his legs.

If you can help please contact pinupjen@gmail.com. Thanks!"

Here's the Link to Milo and other pictures of this handsome boy!

Valentine's Day love for Zuko!

3"x3" acrylic on wooden plaque

This little lovebug is one of the many dogs that benefit from this very project! Art is the Pits has helped sponsor Zuko in the past and present. &hearts

Zuko is currently in boarding in Trucksville PA. He is in desperate need of a foster or forever home! His sad story began when his old "Owner" (I use that term very loosley) decided he didn't want the sweet little boy... He said if the shelter wasn't going to take him, he was going to just let him go in the wild... Geez, some people! Bully Breed Rescue stepped in and rescued Zuko from the shelter... However not having an open foster, Zuko is in boarding. He may be safe from death row, however this isn't the life a puppy like Zuko needs! Maybe your Valentine's gift is to open your heart and home to this precious boy!

contact: bbr.fostercare@gmail.com for more info on Zuko!

Visit his Petfinder page to see more pictures and get info on fostering or Adopting Zuko &hearts

ACEO or ATC "Artist Trading Cards" Pit Bull style!

What the heck is an ACEO or ATC you ask? Well Wikipedia defines it as:
Artist Trading Cards (or ATCs) are miniature works of art about the same size as modern baseball cards,[1] or 2 ½ X 3 ½ inches (63 mm X 89 mm),[2] small enough to fit inside standard card-collector pockets, sleeves or sheets.[3] The ATC movement developed out of the mail art movement and has its origins in Switzerland.[4] Cards are produced in various media, including dry media (pencils, pens, markers, etc.), wet media (watercolor, acrylic paints, etc.), paper media (in the form of collage, papercuts, found objects, etc.) or even metals or cloth. The cards are usually traded or exchanged rather than sold.

Ok so with that being said... Here are my first 4! What I am going to do with these guys still remains to be seen... I will most likely offer ltd ed. signed prints of them to benefit rescue... All matted and ready for a frame of course but we are getting ahead of our selves!

"Tank" has this to say about BSL:

Have you ever noticed that sharing your life with a Pitbull type dog is like a skeleton in the closet? Or rather yet a little secret society... that one only admits when another says they have one first... Pikey is my little "Secret" in this one:

Stan would have been a rough an tumble gangster back in the day....Perhaps not but he's look super sweet in a fedora!

I always imagine Pikey as some sort of super Pittie... here's proof when he was about 12 weeks old.. he radiated positive energy!

Keep an eye out for more of these!!!

I also started a Fine Art America Profile!!!

Jamie Schwartz

With in it's virtual walls you will be able to purchase prints of plaques. Portions of the proceeds will be donated. It's a great way to get your favorite Artsy Bully with out the large original art ticket!

As always thank you so much for supporting this project and sharing in on the Pittie Love!!!
