I used to draw Bars stories for my children. This is "Bars naar het Strand". When those personal stories finally ended up in the Groningen comic museum in 2003 because they were looking for something playful and, as a result, appeared in book in 2008, I thought that it would be nice to have a Bars figurine made. Then came the idea to draw the back the back of the booklet as a backdrop: place the booklet upright, behind the figurine of the dog, and there is a beach scenery behind Bars!
This is that beach scene: a beautiful Franka near beach cafe Happy Flamingo. Beautiful! Large!
