I recently asked Jo Medvics of Pocket Pygmies if she would make me an Apothecary for Slug and Jiggers. Jo makes wonderful characters so I was delighted when she said she would love to give it a go.
Well he has arrived and exceeded all my expectations. I absolutely adore him.
I had sent Jo a print of a medieval apothecary I found on the Internet for initial inspiration and I think he has the perfect medieval quirkiness I was hoping for.
Jo always chooses fabulous fabrics too, he is a great match for the interior of Slug's and the chains are a super touch.
The face is so expressive. He has a world weary, dour look as if he has had to deal with one to many Hogwarts student!
I have a lot of characters now for The Alley but am slowing filling the gaps for key wizards or witches and Wizard Jiggers will soon be in place behind his counter.
