Lifestyle Sports Chalk Drawing
So the past 2 weeks have been fairly mental. I was commissioned by Presence PR to draw a map of the world in chalk for their client, Lifestyle Sports for The World Cup 2014. The drawing had to be large enough for models to be photographed standing in their respective countries meaning the scale of the drawing had to be 14 by 30 metres! The delivery time was at 11.30am this morning so we (Helga and Jeff, my awesome teammates) started at 5am. Having previously done a test run 2 days before our method was fairly solid but the ever present threat of crap Irish weather ruining everything was enough to deprive one of sleep for a few nights leading up to today. Luckily for us, The weather was glorious and everything went according to plan (literally couldn't belive how smoothly it all went, we even finished it with time to spare....). The drawing was actually really quick. The grid on the other hand, was painful. Two and a half hours of delirium. Will post a link of the photo call after the press release, Want to thank Paulie G for hookin' me up. Was good craic!
