The Cannister

The Cannister, released alongside The Tree, is a limited edition of relief prints impressed onto Rives Heavyweight paper. Each signed and numbered print has been embossed with a printer’s chop and comes with a certificate of authenticity.

Although many clues have been scattered throughout the Frank stories as to the nature of Pupshaw’s specific biology, this is the first actual glimpse of what might be called the Mother Pup. As you can see it has a tremendous capacity for the sort of transformational influence that makes Pupshaw such a powerful protector and peaceable companion for the gormless Frank. Who is her beneficiary? Time will tell.
