My Photo of Rhino Wonderland was Re-Tweeted and Fav’ed by the Artist
“Mrs Hearty’s” design was initially inspired by Minky’s artistry in painting Wessex Heartbeat’s little rhino, “Hearty”. The student artists were keen to show synergy between the two rhinos, but also wanted to meld the colour and feel of the African origins of rhinoceros.
“The design is based on the protective clothing that must be worn when carrying out highway maintenance, construction. The the bright yellow material will act as a highlight drawing attention to the “zero harm” logo that Balfour Beatty Living Places use on work jackets. This idea draws upon a sculpture I made some years ago when I designed and made clothing for several large trees as part of a fashion show, held in the centre of Southampton.” – David McDiarmid
Vandals had already stolen his hard hat when I took this . I wish people would leave things alone.
Go Rhinos .“Where’s Ralph?” pays homage to Marwell’s international star – Ralph the Humboldt penguin. Every year Ralph loses his feathers faster than the other penguins, leaving him exposed to the elements. The team at O’Neill heard about Ralph’s plight and offered to create a special custom made wetsuit that was perfect for the little penguin. You can meet Ralph in person at Marwell Zoo but see if you can find him on this rhino.
About “Not a Target”
Julien Masson of Artsim was keen to design something that was clean fun and good to look at but mindful of the plight of rhinos in the wild. He chose the distinct patterns used for target practice and covered the rhino with them. “I like the idea of attracting but also repelling the beholder and hope it’s understood that I’m not trying to make a simple joke and that there is a serious subject matter behind this piece”.
‘Augustus, was designed and painted by four of our very talented art students. Maddy Carter, Lauren Cron, Becky Feltham and Sophie Milner, all 18, and all studying art courses at the college, entered a competition to design the rhino.’
for this shot I converted to Black and white I then used Apertures “Brush away Black and White” function. It works just like History Brush in PS.
