This caricature brought back childhood memories of being in the bog (or the hill as we say in Donegal)! It features the subject in a Kerry GAA jersey with his Ford tractor in the background behind a HAPE of turf! I’m old enough to remember spade-dug turf, trying to catch clouds as they drifted in over us (and realising they weren’t the cotton wool substance I thought they were) and drinking sweet tea from vacuum flasks. My back remembers the days spent footing them. Drawing this was very evocative of those memories (probably some of my earliest).
Principal Retirement Gift Ideas Ireland: this caricature was completed last year for a retiring school principal. He was the founder of the school and the caricature was a gift to him from his staff.
