How dogs inspire. A retrospective of a beloved Rastafarian from Hungary.

When “chatting” with creative and very nice blog-acquaintances, one can never be sure what crazy ideas evolve.
In this case, it was me having a fun conversation with Michael of the wonderful “The BigForest” about dogs and how they can influence their owner´s life in creative terms. Our family dog (long gone to dog heaven but still remembered and missed) sure inspired me when I was in my early teens…so here´s a bit of doggy nostalgia for you.
See Berci in different stages of fluffyness, ending up with a cool dreadlock hairdo. The last pic is of his impressive dad.
He is a Hungarian sheep dog, a Komondor. This rustic breed loves the outoors, is selfsufficient but sweet and cuddly with his family.

And here we go…I made a little sculpture and a lino-cut of him (for which I got a “B minus” in seventh grade, can you believe it 😉  ) ,
and my mom made this fantastic little puppet of him which functions real well and is hilarious when put to action.

  1. Oh my he is lovely. And the sculpture and the puppet are fantastic too. We were thinking of experiementing with more puppets given the success of our finger ones although I think a stringed puppet may be beyond us! But maybe not!!

    • Oh please do give it a try, that ´ll be great!! Can you imagine your fantastic Village People as movable puppets? I can, and with great joy ,-D! And all your other wonderful characters. It would be drop-dead-gorgeous. Fortunately there are quite a few grown ups who´s inner child is wide awake and wants to play 😉
