His name is Leonard. He immigrated to Canada from Poland in the 1960s and recently starred in a short animated film about Toronto that screened at a small film festival.
I made this old man out of scraps of cloth - old tshirts, felt, fleece and burlap. He is about 6" tall. His arms and legs have wires inside so he can be shaped into different positions. I didn't really have an image in mind, but he turned out looking a little sad.
