The original idea was going to be a goat with a beard and hipster glasses, but I didn't know that it would get the idea across, so instead of glasses I decided the goat should be wearing a hat similar to the ones that Gord Downie (the Tragically Hip's front man) wore during the Hip's final tour this past summer. To people who watched the final concerts, it would be fairly recognizable.
This is possibly my favourite piece I've ever painted.

But overall, this piece makes me happy. It's whimsical as hell.
