The Mister Man

BigFatPoo

Mister Trevor Dickinson is a long-time friend of Handmade and a welcome returnee to the market on 10 & 11 September (10am-4pm). With his atmospheric collection of illustrations, Trevor has captured the essence of Canberra in the form of its buildings and bus shelters. We asked Trevor our five questions:

1. What is your business all about?
I draw unusual and interesting aspects of Canberra and sell them as prints, magnets, cards, mugs and tea-towels. My aim is to make work that enables the community to re-experience their city and see it with fresh eyes.

2. What advice would you give to first time stall holders at Handmade?
Talk to your customers and find out how they respond to your work first hand. 

3. What’s the best thing about Handmade?
The market is organised brilliantly, and only having four markets a year keeps it special.

4. What’s new for the next market?
A compact mirror with a drawing of a Canberra bus shelter with “Big Fat Poo!” graffitied on it

5. Sum up your business in THREE words.
Idiosyncratic, Iconic, Irreverent

If you want a Canberra souvenir to send overseas to a loved one for Christmas, or just want a beautiful and iconic image of our unique home town, pay Mister Trevor Dickinson a visit on 10 & 11 September.
