I choose a t-shirt with a mascot printed on Hogarth, the skeleton below. My grandfather had a novelty type of table at the side of his chair, which was a skeleton, Butler. When he died, it was delegated to the porch and when my Nan died it was about to be lashed in a skip. I gave it a home as I quite like its quirky nature. My Grandfather hated the arts and my particular choice to pursue a career in drama. When I founded my theatre company a few years ago, I thought it would be amusing to make the skeleton part of the company branding. Each time, I wear this t-shirt particularly when involved with art activities, I am a little amused by the fact that my Grandad is kind of participating too.
