GIGGLETREE : THE MIDDLE AGES
Before I started designing bright animals out of cloth, I made character plushes, some of them a bit more successful than others. I'm not sure what I was thinking with this biker gangster panda.
This one was better, a Springbok in a rugby jersey, complete with ball.
A really massive polar bear cowboy? It made sense at the time.
A present for my dad the lawyer, wise old lawyer owl. The cloak is completely authentic too, with a pocket at the back for depositing gold coins so your lawyer kept talking.
A monkey jester? He looks a bit creepy, maybe it's me.
