Browsing through Ivan Clarke's artworks of cats and dogs, there is no doubt that this Queenstown artist is a true pet lover.Why?He represents animals as if they were humans.Through artwork, books and public events, Ivan has invented an imaginative world in which our four-legged friends lead human-like lives.Think fashion-conscious felines and guitarplaying pooches; envisage cats sipping champagne and hounds on Harleys.This is the imaginative world of Alveridgea, which has evolved out of the Lonely Dog story.Chatting with Ivan, he explains that having spent his life around animals, it was natural for him to imagine a world inhabited by talking and thinking cats and dogs.

The Clarke family's own miniature long-haired dachshund, Arthur, provided the inspiration for the Lonely Dog story.Ivan is enthusiastic as he retells tales of Arthur's antics, revealing how the dog is considered as much a part of the family as its human members.He playfully refers to Arthur as ,nerdy, but loveable'.Ivan explains how forlorn Arthur looked each year when the family dropped him off at the kennels and set off on their annual overseas holiday. ,Whenever we left him behind to go on holiday he looked so lonely and sad,' Ivan muses, ,and when we returned he went mad and started howling, and we all howled with him.'
It was the family's sadness at the loneliness of their beloved dog that led Ivan to paint the first Lonely Dog picture upon returning from holiday several years ago.The painting, entitled Bon Voyage, shows a slick suit-wearing Arthur staring longingly at a ship on the horizon that's taking the Clarke family on holiday.This initial painting gave Ivan a creative bone to gnaw on, inspiring him to produce more Lonely Dog artworks.He has fond memories of bringing the whimsical images to life for his children by telling wacky and funny stories about them.However, it wasn't just his children who were enraptured by the Lonely Dog paintings and stories; Ivan's friends were also eager to see lonely Arthur become legendary Arthur as they persuaded him to hold a Lonely Dog by Vicky Anderson exhibition in his Queenstown Gallery.
It wasn't long before Ivan was working with local Queenstown writer Chris Parvin to produce a limited-edition book of Lonely Dog paintings, drawings and writings entitled Lonely Dog: Birth of a Legend.
...
As the public has continued to bark orders for more books, Ivan launched his Almalogue in October this year.Available in gold (sold for $28,000) or platinum (sold for $2,925) limited editions, the Almalogue is filled with all things Alveridge, ranging from sketches and illustrations to character profiles and folklore.
...
Although Ivan gained an international reputation for his majestic landscape scenes, it's the Lonely Dog series that has truly captured the imagination of the public and collectors alike.
So, why has the public gone Lonely Dog mad?Ivan partly attributes it to the playfulness of the narrative, believing that people are attracted to the quirky and mischievous adventures of the characters in the stories.On a more serious note, Ivan says that the Lonely Dog story has social metaphors and parallels.In the imaginative world of Alveridgea, social segregation is emphasized between the high-class cats and the hounds who reside on the wrong side of the railway tracks.
With such a following behind it, the Lonely Dog story is no passing art fad.It is rapidly growing into an entertainment phenomenon.Ivan says that his aim is to ,take it to the world in as many ways as possible - illustration, storytelling, multimedia and live performance'.The recent Grande Alveridgean Exposition and Ball, an evening that saw the launch of the Almalogue, would not have been complete without a live band from the USA singing Lonely Dog songs.Although Ivan is reluctant to disclose many of the details, there is also talk of a novel, movie and stage musical in Lonely Dog's future.
...
Not to mention that with the recent addition of a second dashchund to the Clarke family, Ivan has also doubled his source of inspiration, or perhaps just doubled his trouble!
