El Geordie

commissioned painting. “El Geordie, Whippet Fighter”.
A BIT OF FUN

When I was asked to do this art. It was, initially meant to depict a Matador in the bullring. However after some discussion with the buyer and some joking about “what if”. The what if’s soon became a caricature of a bullfighter and the outcome was the Northeasts very own alternative Matador. El Geordie, standing in front of the aptly named, Spanish City, Whitley Bay.
A basic translation:


The whippet ring of Spanish City Whitley Bay
See the famous whippet fighter of Whitley Bay

See El Geordie take on the greatest of whippets while smoking a woodbine
Watch how El Geordie uses a small child’s discarded anorak to whip his pet dog into a frenzy.
See how he deftly avoids knocking over his bottle of brown ale.
