Phosphor's digital artist Mardo El-Noor recently worked on an exciting project with award-winning editorial cartoonist Tom Scott. Mardo created 8 large-scale digital paintings of Tom’s cartoons, the oldest of which was from 1988. The original cartoons were black and white felt-tip illustrations, on yellowing, coffee-stained paper and were all based on our impact on the environment.
Mardo’s taken Tom’s scrawlings and transformed them into colourful and highly details digital works of art. The exhibition Tom Scott Cartoon re-WORKS is an exploration of synergy between two very different artists and two very different media and was originally held at 30upstairs Gallery in Wellington, New Zealand but is now being showcased at the New Zealand Parliament, with the exhibition being opened by Mister Speaker of The House himself.
