Aphid Assassinator

Looks can be deceptive.  Take for instance Mr Thomas Gunn, or Tommy Gunn as his friends call him.  At first glance appears to be a gun totting, viola case carrying, pin stripe suit wearing, hard faced kinda chap. 

But look a little further and you'll realise that the gun is actually an oversized bug sprayer, the viola case does indeed contain a viola (larger than a violin case and therefore more imposing), the pin stripe suit is because all his others are at the dry cleaners.  And well, he can't help what Mother Nature dealt him in the way of looks.

 Tommy Gunn - the Aphid Assassinator is available to buy from Dr Digi for the tax free amount of £2.

I've coloured him with Promarkers and used a vintage advertising topper from Nicecrane Designs.  The banner has been handwritten by me.  Background colouring courtesy of a used tea bag!
