Back in the halcyon days of October, I received an interesting package in the mail.
There were two things in the package. One was a book for my niece, then not quite two. The other was a print for my stairwell gallery.
The artwork for the book had garnered a fair little bit of buzz online, looking at it does like something E.H. Shepard would have done.
I wanted one of the prints for my gallery, and I wanted the booklet for my niece.
It was an easy purchase.
Earlier this week, I thought to look and see what other artwork Hance might have produced in the past six months. Hance has a particular fondness for taking things that should never go together — like, say, The Muppets and Michelangelo’s “The Creation of Man” — and making them work together. Really work together.
I looked at his page of prints, and I saw one that really captivated me, “Amy & Doc.”
It’s a Doctor Who print, in a Calvin & Hobbes style. Imagine young Amelia Pond and her much larger imaginary friend, the Raggedy Doctor, running off to have an adventure.
It was cute. It made me smile. And so I bought it.
Hance is also taking donations for the medical treatment for his young daughter, and I thought it only appropriate to kick in twenty-five dollars there, too.
My good deed for the day. 🙂
