99DS -Dodgy Slips and Deadly Sleds

It's been a long time coming from my point of view (I finished the art almost exactly a year ago and planned to have the exhibition early in the year) but the 99 DS exhibition finally has a date and location.
I had finished all my art and was encouraging my friend Christian Pearce to do the same (99 pieces all on one theme or idea quickly sketched on Colors for the Nintendo DS) and the plan was a small exhibition at a small location, very simple. I probably would have had the exhibition even before Christian had finished if things had gone to plan.
Well, the year has worn on, and my work on Dr. Grordbort's and on District 9 at Weta chewed up all my time
Over the year, the plan for 99 Dodgy Slips shifted and changed but all for the better.

The exhibition will now showcase both mine and Christians work - 99 Dodgy Slips and 99 Deadly Sleds.

We'll be having the exhibition in the Wellington city centre at the Civic Square, right outside the City Gallery.
We're fitting out a unique space for the exhibition, two stripped back, white shipping containers joined together with my 99 pieces in one and Christian's 99 in the other.
I think this is way more appealing than either of our collective works on their own.
We also plan to have a couple of monitors showing the actual painting process (at an accelerated rate) which is a really cool feature of the Colors software.
We'll have 198 mounted prints altogether, which will be for sale, as well as limited edition art books containing all the prints.
The whole thing is possible due to a few people and I have to give massive credit to them.
Richard Taylor, my friend and boss man and his partner Tania Rodger have enabled the whole thing, making what would otherwise be a simple little exhibition into something quite unique and special. Linda Hughes and Tracey Morgan are the ones behind the scenes doing all work that goes into actually getting something like this off the ground. They rule - that's a scientific fact.

For you Hoofy, pants are optional.
