Just found out my design for a superdragon has been accepted. Panic! I'll be joining 49 other artists in decorating one of these:
I've chosen a cartoon style design - it'll be a 'Where's Wally' type of thing, featuring lots and lots of rugby players and only one rugby ball. I'll be going to the official opening tomorrow and will hopefully get the chance to meet a few more of the artists involved (including my cartoonist chum Gerard Whyman!) I'll update how the project is going on the blog and will try and remember to take pictures!
Here's some blurb from the website http://www.newportsuperdragons.co.uk/site/index.php
"SuperDragons is a unique, world-class art event that's designed to have huge public appeal… and it’s on its way. From late July to 9th October 2010, it will create a trail through the city of Newport. From the riverside to the city centre and out to the neighbourhoods; SuperDragons will encourage thousands of people to follow the trail and discover, or re-discover, their city. This is a real opportunity to provide community and education projects and ultimately to take pride in Newport. SuperDragons has been commissioned by Newport City Council and is being created and delivered by Wild in Art. Wild in Art specialises in the creation of mass public appeal art events and related education and community projects"
