CO2

CO2 was spat out as useless byproduct of our motorvehicle industry. This orphan kid has opposite abilities: to suffocate opponents with carbondioxide and to suck up and filter polluted air. With his fearless attitude he loves to be on the road and travel. Constantly seeking adventure, he stumbles upon evil plans and dirty plots. Led by his childlike sense of right and wrong he never backs down until justice is done. No matter how big the enemy.

Rank: Marine privat.
Primary objective: Clean air for all.
Weapon of choice: Release of suffocating carbondioxide.
Character: Energetic, enthousiastic and strong sense of justice.
Flaws: Reckless, mindless & naive.
Fear: That all beauty be destroyed.

4th June 2008 

The Exhibition was a total success and here are some pics to prove it. Must admit I was too bussy talking and drinking and forgot to take more pics. It was a great night , we eat a whole cheese and nearly a whole leg of ham, with a few bottles of red wine (18). Everyone that came along for the opening night enjoyed the exhibition. I would like to thank everyone again that made this possible… my beautiful girlfriend Menchu, my mum, my dad and my little sister Sas for their patience and support, Matt Joyce for the poster, Diego Etcheverry for the great T-shirt that i wore on the night, everyone that took part in the custom piggys… all the characters and posters submited for this project… Lucas for cutting the Ham and Dave and Kath for their help at the final stage of the arrangement. THANKS DUDES!!!! Without you guys it wouldnt be possible.

I received this little bit of help from Peter Wassink.

“A tip for the list of ‘Piggy’s we know about’. I was missing Porco Rosso, he is a pilot pig from the comicbook and famous animation film by Hayo Miyazaki. check it out here wikipedia.

Pigs play a role in more of mr Miyazaki’s films. In ‘Princess Mononoke a heard of Giant wild Boars plays an important role. And in ‘Spirited away’, his oscar awarded movie, The parents of the main character , a little girl, are transformed into piggies.”
