Paul Kim at The Walrus asked Maurice Vellekoop to create this image for a review of Anne Carson’s book “Red Doc” by Sarah Liss.

Last autumn, the Toronto Pride Committee asked Maurice Vellekoop to come up with costume designs for some mascots they were considering creating for the World Pride festivities coming to town in 2014.
There were to be 4 designs for typically Canuck animals representing various types in the LGBT community. Maurice offered variations on a couple of them.
The Committee eventually decided to use another artist’s designs.
