It feels like found art to me. In other words, one of the creatives saw the body paint work this artist does and said, "That's cool. How can we put a logo on it and call it an ad?"

An artist did the same basic thing with motorcycles before. It was just better executed. It feels like the creatives saw that and applied the artist's idea to their client. Rather than having the idea and looking for an artist to execute it.

'Feel' to your heart's content, Spankster.

The fact is... it's idea/agency driven, with an Adelaide artist commissioned to produce the work.

And if you're referring to the Motorcycle Safety tvc where the rider's protective clothing was painting on...

it was conceptualised by the same agency with the same artist commisioned. Enjoy. :)

Spanky, I'm assuming you're referring to the Human Motorcycle project:
This launched only a few weeks ago and in fact happened at roughly the same time as our project; which we started back in late August. So the similarities are a mere co-incidence. The truth is that Karl Fleet and Amy Weston were the originators of the idea; we were just lucky enough to have someone of Emma Hack's calibre in Adelaide that could actually help us pull it off.

Roger, you're right - Emma Hack (and Jacqui Way) should be credited and have in actual fact been in all our releases (in fact Emma's website has been overloaded since the launch of this work a few weeks back). But we'll look to rectify it on here too.
