KANGAROO VS QM-1
APRIL 12, 2015

*Left: Kangaroo 1 - Daniel Dugas, 2010

The boxing kangaroo light up pen.
"He can run, but he can't hide."
Joseph Louis Barrow known as Joe Louis

This boxing kangaroo is also a light up pen. A multitasking ‘roo symbolizing that it’s possible to be many things. On the Internet there are a lot of sites that sell them.
“Kangaroo pens are perfect give away Aussie souvenirs and little gifts”, they say. They might be right.

This kangaroo souvenir-boxer-light show can write, maybe a note to himself, a get-well card or a list of things to get at the store. He can box too. His gloves are red, like the light he wears, a punch in the night.

I press the button on his back and his arms go flying! BANG! BAM! WHAM! He’s made in plastic and he sounds just like it. I am not sure if it’s a boxing kangaroo turned writer or a kangaroo writer turned boxer. It happens. The idea of writing while fighting at the same time is fascinating, even if I’m not sure if one can do both at the same time. It would be like drinking a coffee without a lid, in a car, on a dirt road full of potholes while driving.

On the Internet there are many sites that sell those pens, one of them says that the minimum order is 5,000 pieces and they can supply up to 100,000 pieces per week. They ship from Ningbo or Shanghai port. That’s a lot of ‘roos in one boat.

QM, La Quasi-Modo is a character from Tippy’s Recipes.+ During the creation of the QM persona, there were several photo sessions aimed at bringing characters from the serial to life. These shots illustrate practice flights on the Tantramar marshlands, spring 2010.



+The adventures were written 1995- 2012 and published on JUiCYHEADS in weekly episodes April – December 2012. They are still available for reference through the JUiCYHEADS archives.
