About Building a World


I'm Sam Brown the artist behind explodingdog which started back in 2000. For a short while I was kinda internet famous; I'm internet normal now.

This my store for my art and I mostly run it myself.*
We ship orders on the days after the newsletter goes out, otherwise we ship once or twice a week, usually on Tuesdays.

Prints are high-end inkjet prints from my original digital files done on professional equipment with archival materials. Original art, books and those kind of things will have their own description.

Packing slips don't include prices on them.

We ship as Internationally as we can. You will be responsible for any taxes, custom fees or bribes your country requires.
We can't ship framed prints internationally. The prints are too big, the price is too high and the trip is too long. 

If your order arrives and you don't think it's great or it's damaged or the person you share your space with is crying because you replaced their mall painting we can do exchanges, replacements or refunds.

Framing is custom done and can take up to three weeks.

We do custom sizes, framing and matting. We can also help select drawings and give discounts on larger quantities if you want a bunch of prints for your home, office or the back seat of your Trans Am.

Any questions, problems or solutions contact us at info@buildingaworld.com if we can, we will reply in less than twenty four hours with useful information. If you have an order number include it. Your packing slip will have a customer service phone number on it, right now it's forwarding to my personal phone. Feel free to call but I might be in the middle of eating a sandwich, making a sandwich or just thinking about sandwiches.**


*Building a World was once a bigger operation with books we published, tshirts and employees but it stopped making sense. I was not able to focus. Like I was eating too many appetizers to enjoy the meal. I do refer to "us" and "we" on this page because I sometimes have help and who knows what the future holds. I might be eating at a different restaurant.

**There was a dude named Sandwich. He created the sandwich. You, me, friends, family and all these other people are wandering around this world wanting our passions and loves to be real. Hoping to leave our scribbles for the future. Maybe it's as simple as when a Guy named Sandwich asked for his food to be put on his bread.
