Walkabout characters

The Company of International Artists

Agents Dali and Kahlo are creative agents with the top-secret global creative agency The Company of International Artists.

The agents are keen art investigators, so they invite the public to find interesting ideas that are hiding in art. Street art. Sculpture. Or even art that someone's wearing.

Kahlo and Dali file these interesting ideas in a variety of ways. They might make a note in their official CIA black notebooks. Or into their filing cabinet on wheels that the are pushing about the place. But if you're really lucky, they'll file your idea by putting it into a song.

Eccentric, quirky and encouraging, Dali and Kahlo will make everyone they meet feel extremely creative. And knowledgeable. About art.

The People's Protection League

The People's Protection League are walkabout characters from a fictional charity that gives support to people who are bullied by their cats.

Which is far more common than you'd expect, actually.

So if you’ve ever suffered from hallways of half-dead frogs, trodden on an abandoned vole bladder or been covered in vomit when your feline overdid the catnip, then The People's Protection League is for you. 

Features the song "Cat-astrophe" by Gill Simmons. 

The Poets

Daisy, Nettle and Basil are feeling the Vibes. They travel the country in their beaten up VW Camper, seeking Vibes.

Once they've felt the Vibes, they will transform the Vibes into some truly eye-wateringly so-bad-it's-funny poems and songs.

So if you ever feel like you're a very ordinary and uninspiring person, go meet a Poet. Because they might be terrible at poetry, but they know that every person has Vibes.

You'll leave feeling much happier about yourself, we assure you. 

The Monitors

Escaped characters from our family show George and the Flight of the Imaginees, The Monitors are grey-suited, briefcase-wielding and very, very serious.

Your Health and Safety is their paramount concern and they'll do everything in their arsenal of measuring devices to ensure that you don't have Too Much Fun. Or Imagine Too Much. I mean, you can't go around just imagining things. Where would it end?

So serious they are utterly ridiculous.

Disclaimer: any similaries between The Monitors and investigative bodies such as Ofsted are purely coincidental....

Our Walkabout characters are great for street events and festivals.
They are eye-catching, quirky, high-energy and engaging.
