The nexus of all realities

Thompson: The Chairman thought maybe we just needed to do a better job of teaching you how to ride a bike before taking the training wheels off again. So we gave you the Renaissance, the Enlightenment, the Scientific Revolution.

Like Forrest Gump, Brockley's story is interwoven with every major global cultural phenomenon in modern history. Brockley designed the Olympic torch. Brockley wrote King Kong. Brockley created the Buttery Biscuit Base. Now it turns out that Brockley Central regular Max created the EURO 2012 mascots Slavek and Slavko:

Thanks Nick. I really must buy you some drinks now, maybe in front of Italy-England?
Full credits, I did this for Warner Brothers, involved was also Paul Windle Studio (which is in Newcastle).

By the way, even more nexus, one of the initial concepts that didn't make it but that was definitely my favourite was... a badger!

Never heard of them, so definitely a Brockley thing.

A nice "Local boy done good." story

Very good - congratulations! Miles better than the Olympic ones.

Shame the badger didn't make the cut, though!

Loved this - did Jedward inspire?

max said...

Thanks everyone, no it wasn't Jedward the actual inspiration although at the end they clearly remind.
The initial concept that was approved was quite different and the hairstyle was more of a Astroboy thing actually, that style eventually started to mutate during the development process and at the end that's what came out.
Inspirations for the hairstyles during this process were the Minimois from Arthur and the Invisibles, Flint of Cloudy with a chance of Meatballs and Johnny Rotten's current hairstyle.

Ha, just imagining John and Edward discussing their inspiration as they stick another dollop of the 'concrete' hairgel on.

Max. Shame you didn't make a it a badger, what with Ukraine being an old word for badger, or something.

max said...

No, the reason is that Badgers are fairly common animals in both Poland and Ukraine and very fun to draw.
