Die afgelope maand of wat het Blink Stefanus saam met griff gewerk aan 'n reeks comic books genaamd "Wie's Bang?" vir Van Coke Kartel as deel van hulle launch campaign vir hulle album later in die jaar. Hieronder is effens van 'n press release en so paar pics wat julle min of meer 'n idee sal gee van die illustration style en so aan. Julle sal die eerste comic teen volgende week vir fokol Rand kan download van Watkykjy af. Hopelik like julle dit stukkend. Die res van die comics sal beskikbaar wees op Zefshop
Press release opsomming:
Later this month, a Van Coke Kartel comic book, entitled “Wie’s Bang?” will be launched. “Wie’s Bang?” is part of the launch campaign of Van Coke Kartel’s forthcoming album, and is the brainchild of art director Marais Janse van Rensburg, of interactive advertising agency WonderMutt. “We did a TV commercial with Van Coke Kartel for another advertising agency last year, to be entered into the Loeries Awards, and the band agreed to do it at no charge. I then undertook to contribute to the band’s next album launch campaign if the ad won. The rest is history, and this year we came up with the idea for a comic book centred around Van Coke Kartel, which will lead up to the album’s launch. However, the comic book is but one of the campaign elements. To watch the Loerie Award-winning commercial featuring Van Coke Kartel, please click here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-VXXJNAUZrA .
The team working on the Wie’s Bang? project comprises Marais Janse van Rensburg and Lohan Grobler from Proud Creations who are responsible for the basic story line, whilst Stefanus Nel and Griff (godfather of Zef from WatKykJy? fame) are the project’s writers. The illustrations are done collectively by Says Who, Merwe Marchand, Louis Minnaar and Proud Creations. “Working with Van Coke Kartel was really humbling, and makes me feel bad about complaining about long working hours,” says Marais. “Their endurance and work ethic is phenomenal. They are the most professional artists I have ever worked with, and it is with good reason that they have reached the top.”
Wie’s Bang? will be available for free download from the Van Coke Kartel website around middle May. Teasers will also be available on the Van Coke Kartel website, WonderMutt facebook page, Says Who and on www.watkykjy.co.za .
