Craggy Island Gothic

Father Ted and Father Dougal at the Parochial House
I've been watching a fair bit of Father Ted again lately. Great show, so sad it ended like it did. I would have loved to see what Dermot Morgan could, and should, have gone on to do next. Something about Ted and Dougal suggested that they would be perfect for a re-working of Grant Wood's classic American Gothic, so that's what I did. Obviously with those two the severe pose of the original had to go in favour of a confused expression for Ted and a surprised one for Dougal. There are very few times when Dougal isn't surprised by something. Such as the sky, or the ground, or by the fact that other people turn up and tell him that he is a preist.

This one is also available on Society6 and Redbubble and you can find all the details on the Doodle Dojo Store.
