Twijazzling And Sheeptacular

The Royal Welsh Show was on last week, the biggest annual agricultural show in Wales. I’ve been a couple of times but I find it a bit odd because I’m a proper townie. A while back, I visited some chums who raise pigs, in very nice humane conditions, and did some scribbling. One of my sketches became this lino cut of their Mangalitza Boar. Here’s their website, it’s very interesting but perhaps best avoided if you’re vegetarian or vegan.

There’s a new online publication called The Eye Magazine all about life in Wales. I spotted this article, a spoof about the Royal Welsh Show. It’s hilarious. Seriously funny. Take a few minutes to read it, it’s only short. It’s called “Twijazzling Furore At The Royal Welsh“. Twijazzling is such a bonkers concept I wouldn’t be surprised if it takes off. Do watch the “Welsh Sheeptacular” video in the article. It’s genius!

    That’s a very expressive pig! Were the chums’ pigs big? I’ve seen some in rural North Carolina that were almost as big as Volkswagen Beetle!

      Yes, Mangalitzas, large and hairy and a bit ginger. The boar’s snout was the diameter of a dinner plate!
