Farmer Giles

by Artizani

A solo walkabout who leans over his five bar gate and gives advice on any subject from farming (about which he knows little) to philosophy (about which he knows less). 

The image in a busy street is gently surreal, while the repartee is quick witted and hilarious. 

This animation can be static and play to passers-by, or can move and do a series of cameos. The gate is on wheels and moves easily.
