Self-portrait of the Artist as a Young Dog.  In need of an image for my illustration work, I spoofed the time-honored RCA Victor logo, "His Master's Voice" (also known in French as La Voix de Son MaĆ®tre, in German as Die Stimme seines Herrn, in Italian as La voce del padrone, and in Spanish as La voz de su amo). Always alert to new tricks, this old dog is listening carefully to a Grammophone cylinder phonograph.  The original painting, used by RCA since 1899, was by Francis Barraud.
