‘People tend to forget that play is serious.’
Theodor is one of my favourite prints that I have made.
For me he encapsulates the essence of a cheeky guy up for a bit of fun.
Theodor was inspired by an eclectic mix of things I fancy:
These little fella’s pictured are from the Guide Dogs Victoria website.
A couple of my relatives had Labradors for pets and I adored playing with them.
One of the best rock and roll bands ever.
They were fronted fantastically by the swanky Bon Scott, from 1974-1980, until his unfortunate demise.
3. Norman ‘Sailor Jerry’ Collins.
Master tattooist and all round purveyor of cool.
After Theodor was finished I thought he needed a gang so I made him some friends – Crazy Daisy and The Duke.
A pretty smooth crew if I do say so myself!
