The man who owns the tent at the top of the hill in Sydney’s north is John Persons, a cartoonist and illustrator.
He is the owner of the tent, which has a ceiling height of 4 metres and a roof height of 25 metres.
“I’m trying to make it a comfortable place to live in, but also a place to do a little bit of creative work,” Mr Persons said.
The tent, made of corrugated iron and wood, is set in the back yard of a house he owns in the suburb of Dandenong, near the town of Monash.
“We’ve got a whole wall of paintings on it.
I’ve got some prints from when I was younger, I’ve made some cartoons that I think might be a little different, but the main thing is it’s got a nice floor to it, so it’s nice to be able to sit down and get some work done,” Mr Person said.
He said his tent was built with the aim of making it more aesthetically pleasing.
“It’s an outdoor house, so the windows are open, the light is on, the ventilation is good.”
I’ve got an electric fan on top so it keeps the water off.
It’s all nice and tidy.
It’s just a really nice place to be, it’s very peaceful.
“The water will run, it’ll fill up, and it’ll wash away the buildings, but it will leave behind a very beautiful landscape.” “
A lot of people who are in the tent are just looking at it as a metaphor for the future,” he said.
“The water will run, it’ll fill up, and it’ll wash away the buildings, but it will leave behind a very beautiful landscape.”
Mr Persons has been drawing cartoons for decades, and is now making a documentary about the creation of the Sydney river, which he said was influenced by nature.
Mr Person said he hoped to continue working on his cartoons for the rest of his life.
He has been making some of his own work for the past decade.
In the end, he wants to make the world a better place, with the help of nature.
