A new and unique organism, the Typographicus (common name: Mitch) was discovered about a decade ago in West London, however his place of origin is thought to be somewhere around the Shires of Northern England.
Generally friendly and good natured, Mitch enjoys work in equal measure to play. He requires constant visual stimulus and a strict diet of good music in addition to supplements of irreverent humour and spontaneity.
Mitch is a habitual creature, happily spending most of the day creating distinctive designs and illustrations for other discerning mammals. This is essential for the breed’s well-being.
Neither overly dominant nor overly submissive, Mitch is usually well-behaved, but may have a tendency to snore and does experience flatulence on a regular basis.
