5 metre Lomu

Ready for it's grand unveiling at Frank Kitts Market, Wellington tomorrow. My son is in the background on the last picture for a bit of perspective, he's about 1 metre tall and five years old today!!! Still trying to workout how to hang it up???

Jonah Lomu complete

Couldn't be arsed doing the background. Pretty chuffed with the final colour version technically but wonder if this actually looks like Jonah anymore!?! If you're in the Wellington area on Saturday pop along to Frank Kitts market and you can see 84 pieces of A3 paper stuck together to make up this Kiwi behemouth.

Jonah Lomu progress

Black and white version of Jonah complete. Small version here followed by a full size 'slice'. He should be life size at about 2 metres tall. This will be on display at Frank Kitts market next Saturday 23 April if I get a stall. Maybe even the colour version if I get time this week.

Rugby World Cup 2011 Calendars

This week I've been working on the layout for a Rugby World Cup Calendar. I've hooked up with a printer who reckons these will sell like hot cakes. First we'll have to get through the All Blacks management and negotiate copyright and image rights etc.

Also spotted this article about what Wellington is doing for the World Cup experience. I'm a wee bit disappointed that it wasn't my caricatures in the printed version of the Dominion Post. Obviously I'm not marketing myself well enough. Ah well I'll keep chasing my tail!

Jonah Lomu

Time to do some more detailed studies and Jonah Lomu is first up. I'm intending to add some retro 90's colouring and to make this life size, showing Jonah in top gear rolling over a bunch of light weight English backs. I need to do some work on backgrounds too so will aim for that as my update next week.

Have a look at my other blog too at:
