A Father's Day Q&A with Reg Mombassa
In honour of Father's Day here in Oz we pulled together at team Third Drawer Down and gathered a bunch of questions for the coolest Dad artist going, Reg Mombassa. We launched our collaboration with Reg Mombassa this time last year - with a rainy BBQ no less (cheers Melbourne) so there really is no better time to re-visit one of our favourite collections to date!
Here's a few things we wanted to ask the man of the hour.
1. Which species of Australian fauna best represents you and why?
-The Kengaroo i.e. a kangaroo with the head of a kiwi. Kengaroo is the New Zealand pronunciation of kangaroo. This animal represents me because it is a trans-Tasman creature.
3. If Australia went ahead with redesigning their flag (that has recently been ccriticised for copying the NZ flag) would you volunteer a design? What would it look like?
4. Have you ever eaten at 'Lentil as Anything’? If so, what did you think?
5. Reg Mombassa is your pseudonym, what’s the story behind the name? And why do you use it?
6. You're known for your work with clothing brand ‘Mambo’, how did this happen? And are you interested in fashion?
7. What would you do if you were omnipotent?
8. Which of your works is your favourite and why?
9. Your daughter is a comedian and killing it! We think she is brilliant. Is comedy and laughter a big part of your home? Does her awesome sense of humour come from you basically :)
Check out this adorable family. Happy Father's Day to all the Rad-Dads out there. We applaud you.
