Here's my latest commission for "Hootenanny Hollow the Home of the Hootenanny" on Facebook (… ). What is the Hootenanny? Go check it out and maybe you can tell me! Drawn with traditional inks, then vectorized and coloured digitally. Thanks for looking!

Love that word.

Y'know, you got me to look up something new, as that FB page wasn't helping; although, "the Hootenanny is the Hootenanny" is a pretty good answer to who is the Hootenanny.

The word became synonymous with folk-lore festivals thanks to its popularization by individuals like Pete Seeger, but originally meant an item of unknown origin and could be used to describe an item you're unsure of. In my search, I also learned the term "bumfuzzled", which means to confuse.

Fun fact: dA doesn't flag "hootenanny" for spellcheck, but it does flag "bumfuzzle" and "dA".

Nice colours and illustration in this work Huw.

Haha. Apparently this thing came into existence due to the fact the guy's dad was a taxidermist and had some "left over bits" so he made them into this ... er, "unique" creation. Not sure why it got called The Hootenanny! Just in case you were bumfuzzled!
