Object Detail

Woodblock print of Morris' character Captain Buzzard Rock. The character arose out of the realisation that comic book heroes and the extreme brutality of their actions were not, in fact, that far from reality. The print is comprised of three frames showing Captain Buzzard Rock. The frames are captioned "captain buzzard rock was a mighty fine jock and a mighty fine jock was he." The back of the artwork features the details of a paint order Morris was going to send to an art supplier in Christchurch.
