Koko Black competition - brainstorming

Dave threw the gauntlet down at me for this competition last month and having seen his mock up - i'm not sure i'm able to meet his challenge! His progress notes look fantastic and he's well on his way to realising his idea.

The brief has daunted me and i've spent weeks staring at and thinking about the giant burrow and what do i want to come out of it. In passing, i thought of a spiral that goes up as koko(black)pods and comes down as eggs, but it's rabbits that are coming out of the burrow for me.

Koko Black art competition - progress notes

Is this going to win me a year of chocolate and a ticket to diabetes? I've thrown down the gauntlet to n.t. and we'll see what she comes up with (which will probably kick my ass)

a poster for Huy & Kang

My brother was getting married and rather than just stick up those paper double happinesses and letters spelling out their names in our house for the tea ceremony, I designed and made this poster.

The hardest part was making the double happiness stencil and stencilling the pattern on without having any idea of the principles of stencilling.
