Eli, no!

Eli oh no! Ok, perhaps this was especially hilarious to us because Eunice (our co-founder & creative director) has not one but two dogs that are constantly shenanigan-tastic.  Simon, the naughtiest, has been know to eat entire sticks of butter and has chewed open any and every pocket containing a forgotten dog treat, stick of gum, or stray chapstick.  They are both simultaneously hilarious and perpetrators of the kind of behavior that makes you want to bang your head like that frustrated pianist from Sesame Street.

eli no!!!

No Eli!

Needless to say when we saw this children's book (via sfgirlbybay) called "Eli, no!" (unpublished, which is just ridiculous!  Someone publish this immediately!)  from artist Katie Kirk, we were a) totally inspired b) so loving the design and illustration and c) so very charmed.  It's the story of one trouble-making dog, and the one word that isn't far behind.  Hilarious.

No!No! Eli!
