Home > Lollipops (drawings, 2004-2007)

This style of character-drawing began when I was asked by the British advertising agency Mother to work on their campaign for the Observer Music Magazine. That "Abba to Zappa" campaign was, delightfully, rather successful. Hurrah. You can see some of these characters in the original TV and poster campaign stuff in the portfolio section.

For ages these characters had no generic name, informally being known (by me alone) as Ommpops. But because of their big flat round heads, I decided Lollipops fits quite nicely.

When some of these drawings were exhibited at the Rock en Seine festival in Paris, I had a lot of fun secretly watching people try to guess who they are, so I've not labelled them here. If you do, however, need to know who each one is, just hover your mouse over the image for a couple of seconds and a label should appear.
