From these studies come the weird & wonderful anthropomorphics. Initially known for his dragons over twenty years ago, Graham has widened his field to include animal Characters because of their originality & humour. 

Pigs, toads, mice, rabbits are favourites among customers. Graham is not above poking fun at the Law as in ‘The courtroom scene’– clerk, judge, conspiring lawyers.

The cricketing Mole, Toad & Ratty from Kenneth Grahame's 'Wind in the Willows' were inspired from a mole's huge fore-limbs - "He'd make a perfect wicket-keeper!" commented Graham.
