I wanted to create an image that summed up my love & empathy towards my city WITHOUT being clichéd, irritating or unrealistic.
The image took about 2 days to come up with but the slogan took weeks. I wasn't happy until I'd found a slogan that fitted his face and attitude perfectly.
To this day I still screen print him onto the odd piece of cardboard and leave him around the city for someone to take home. I've received some very heart warming emails from people who've been lucky enough to find him first.
