In 1986, Ball’s drawing of a NZ fur seal pup was adopted by the United Nations for the International Year of Peace.

Fur Seal
Just as well his dream of becoming an All Black didn’t materialise or Wal, The Dog, Horse, Cooch, Major, The Murphys, Prince Charles, Darlene Hobson, Aunt Doll and a host of other Footrot family characters might have never come to be.

Leaves behind a world grateful for his many creations, especially Footrot Flats.
