Mythical Bunny Stripe Jumper
WHY WE LOVE THE Mythical Bunny Stripe Jumper
Deborah Smith is a New Zealand based artist who co-founded Cloud Workshop in 2008 to help children suffering bereavement through taking part in creative workshops. We met in 2015 after being introduced by Susie Cave. I hadn‚Äôt known at the time that Deborah was grieving the recent and untimely death of her own beloved brother, Tyrone Smith.
Deborah and I stayed in touch, mostly by Instagram sending each other pictures of whippets. One day she sent me a book she had made about Tyrone with photographs and artworks and said if there was anything I wanted to use for my work the family would be happy. I was struck by the beauty and interestingness of Tyrone‚Äôs drawings, like Donnie Darko cartoons filled with attitude and an underlying melancholy. I fell in love with some of his animals wearing space suits, in particular this bunny, who I dressed in my 1970 jumper. There is something about this creature that makes me think of the Greek myths as well as all the comic books that sustained me as I was growing up.
Loose fit wool jumper. Ribbed neck, hem and cuffs. This style is more of a cropped fit, so you may wish to take a size up from your usual size.
Drawing by: Tyrone Smith
