David Germond of The Win Win Group emailed me a challenge… To come up with alternative uses for your vuvuzela now that the World Cup is over.
His email was simple. It said: ‘This is what Zapiro did…‘
So here’s my stab at it.
I took a good hour to do a Google search for a suitable Mel Gibson picture. I was hunting for one where he spews vitriol, something to match the sound of his voice on the leaked recordings of his verbal abuse of his wife.
It seems his public relations handlers are on full red alert doing urgent fire-fighting. There are only a very few unsavoury pics of the man. And those are tame.
Anyway. I found this one. It suits my purpose. It’s from ContactMusic.
I originally intended making a caricature of him. But when I was dummying up the composition, I liked the juxtaposition of the photo with the drawing. So that’s what I stuck with.
This picture was made entirely in ArtRage 3 (with the exception of the photo of Mel Gibson, which is used without permission). No vuvuzelas were abused in the making of this muzzle. Mind the drool.
