Tootsie owner and organiser Michaela Pothan thanked everyone involved.

“A massive thank you to everyone involved – Rick Cochrane and friends, the Tootsie crew, Walter and Karin from Zoohause and the Yass community who supported this event by bringing their pets down to be sketched,” she said on social media.

“What a fabulous day!”

The event raised $809 for the Yass Valley Animal Shelter.

“In my art practice I seek to capture the immediacy and energy of my subjects through fast and emotionally responsive drawing”.
Simple-line
In developing a combination of drypoint etching and mono-printing, Cochrane has sought to retain all the ‘attitude’ from the original drawings. Each print has a maximum version per plate of just 5 and is unique, with slight differences due to the mono-printing part of the process.

“Unlike the act of drawing, printmaking is not normally considered a fast and responsive process. However, etchings have a unique beauty and have remained part of the portfolio of artists for centuries,” he says.
