"All Whiskers" by Gary Tricker.
A whimsical take on the All Blacks. - Can you see the mouse on the ball?
This will be going soon into art galleries for purchase.
The etchings are done on copper plates
I love how his art work is quirky - it usually has trains (Gary was brought up with trains as his dad worked on the trains) clocks and black cats.
Toko and Tahi are two cats we bred, they sure have life sussed living with Gary and are his models for many of his art works. I'm often asked if I miss breeding cats - yes and no. Yes for all the wonderful people we have met. But no as I really did not like moving on the old breeding stock - Burmese have such wonderful personalities and you get very attached to them. I doubt I will breed again.
Toko was the inspiration for this etching
Gary reads the blog and gave me permission to put the photos on the blog. Leave a comment to Gary below, I'm sure he will enjoy hearing from you.
Brent and I enjoy catching up with Gary. We both love listening to his stories and getting a peek into his art studio. This visit the cats didn't come walk abouts instead they stayed asleep. But did wake up for pats and gave big purrs of contentment.
