Hairy Nose itchy Butt is the story of a Southern Hairy Nosed Wombat who endures the frustration of not being able scratch an itch and the tragic loss of his home.

 

Garry was compelled to bring attention to the plight of the Southern Hairy Nosed Wombat when at the time wombat populations were being decimated by sarcoptic mange, the current drought and long term habitat loss. Garry’s aim was to create a book and contribute funds to Wombat conservation. (currently - Conservation Ark’s wombat program at Zoos SA).

 

Garry set about painting a number of wombat pieces with no real connecting thread but with wife Lou’s story line and good friend Liz’s fun rhyming story we now have a classic - Hairy Nose Itchy Butt.
