Now he finally has arrived! Let me introduce our latest family member… Jack Lumboar!
I’ve been thinking about this idea for quite some time now. But it actually took a few months until I drew him. I knew that I wanted to make a lumberjack but was unsure of what kind of animal he would become. At first I thought of a moose or a bear. But it felt a little too obvious, like you’ve seen it before. So Nah! I skipped that idea. But in the end I thought that a wild boar might would be cool? It may not be the first animal you think of when you think of a lumberjack, but it suited him so well! With his rough fur, snout and tusks.
Then it was time to draw the outfit. I didn’t want to make it too obvious there either and put a red plaid shirt on him. I wanted to give him a little more neutral look. So he got a gray grandfather shirt, dark pants, suspenders and an wooden ax on his shoulder. In the end I also added a small wood anemone in the breast pocket to pick up the Swedish woods and soften him up a bit (and just because I love anemones!) Et volia! There he was! :)
I posted a picture of him on both Facebook and Instagram and asked for your help to name him. I got soo many good name suggestions! Thanks everyone! You are just the best! It eventually became a mix of several of your names. I named him Jack Lumboar (a mix och lumberjack and wild boar) There will soon a small giveaway on Instagram as a small thank you for your wonderful help <3
…and this is what it looked like during the drawing process.
Now you find him as signed art prints and posters in several different sizes together with the rest of his family, in my webshop. Hope you like him! :)
