Everything you need to know to draw Twrch Trwyth!

Twrch Trwyth

The great British boar that almost bested Arthur and wears a barbers kit on its head!

We’re sailing back across the pond for this one, to the British isles and the multi faceted Arthurian legends! This one’s a pretty straightforward beast, a giant wild hog that wears a barbers kit strapped to it’s back… but the story behind him… so many details… so we’re just doin’ this:

  • it was a prince who was turned into a giant hog
  • giant hog wears scissors, brush and razor upon its back?
  • giant hog angry
  • giant hog has hoglets who are also very angry
  • giant hog and hoglets terrorize isles with much stomping and goring
  • King Arthur and Co are enlisted to help
  • said forces battle in many locales and much damage is done
  • eventually most hunters and all hoglets dead
  • Arthur battles original hog on seaside cliff finally removing barber’s kit
  • Giant hog jumps into sea and swims away, never to be seen again
  • …Arthur’s nephew’s fiance’s dad, finally gets to shave!


So that’s it! Draw us a giant medieval stick figured and dotted arrow-pathed battle scene, or a quiet moment where ol Trwyth settles down to brush it’s mangy locks, or hell just that upstairs neighbor from the Jeffersons walking a fat potbelly somewhere… Just think giant pig, then make it English and most of all, have fun scrawling it on something you can take a picture of, send that sh*t in! Then we’ll enjoy em and throw a shirt at our favorite!

Judgement Is Complete

Winning Twrch Trwyth PicSo I’m not sure if it’s got really short arms or if his butt is getting sucked into a singularity but I know it hurts my brain and makes me smile, plus it looks like he’s stealing a toilet! I’ll be in touch about your shirt soon and thanks to all who drew!

Know that judgement is now law and to the victor go the spoils! And don’t forget, you can always send your drawings of a Twrch Trwyth in late, you won’t win a shirt but I’ll gladly post it for everyone’s enjoyment!
