The Disqualified Portfolio is
a collaborative effort which shows how petty and arbitrary breed standards can be when judging a dog. It's also a good way to get a lot of talented artists to create a lot of great work. Every dog depicted in this portfolio has one or more physical traits that would bar him from winning breed competitions. Every dog in the portfolio is also male and very
proud of that fact. What this portfolio hopes to show is that while every dog here will never be able to take home a kennel club championship, they're still every bit as gorgeous as an official champion. It's not the standard that counts, it's the dog.
Since the Disqualified Portfolio
is a collaborative
effort, every participating artist gets a fair share in the profits according to the number of pieces created.
