A quick follow up to Australian!Shitty because I couldn’t get it out of my head. And yeah I changed their nicknames… these ones seemed more likely in Australia.

Jack: based on Alastair Cook (reference pic) is an opening batsman and (obviously) captain. He’s responsible, in for the long haul, and no one can ever get him out.

Bitty: based on Steve Smith (reference pic). Quick runner, much better at batting than anyone can really believe and absolutely terrified of being hit by the ball. (For non-Australian reference: the way you would say Bitsy is like “Bitssaaaaaaaaay”.) 

Ransom and Holster: (Mitchell Johnson as ref: 1, 2) Fast bowlers. They bowl from opposite ends and every single batsman dreads one or both of them.

Shitty: Spin bowler, middle order batsman, never seems like he’s trying but has a knack for saving the day. Always underrated by the media who seem to forget what an excellent fielder he is.

Chowder: Wicketkeeper. Nominated for KFC’s Classic Catches so often that everyone else complains he needs to give someone else a shot.

Dex and Nursey: send me your thoughts…  I kinda see them as 3rd and 4th batsmen who often end up batting together. Nurse just wants to go for the big shots and Dex wants to run a million singles.

I know I haven’t drawn the frogs, but that’s because I fully intend to draw them as AFL players.


“Bitty, why is Shitty still wearing his pads? Isn’t he too hot? It’s like 40 degrees and he’s been wearing them for hours????”

“Oh he always does this, it’s a tradition. Even on the hot days.”

“Am I hearing right? Chowder thinks I have too many clothes on? I can take my boxers right off!”

So I started imagining the Samwell Hockey Team as cricketers and… this is the visual that popped into my mind.
