Hothouse 4

A chance encounter

March - May 2007

Dale Hayward

Watch Roy G Biv

Dale HaywardTrained by skilled draftsmen and fine gentlefolk, Dale Hayward has achieved sub-successful success in the fields of animation, illustration and learning from other people’s mistakes. His pride lies in telling stories, developing characters in their lives and making people’s cheeks rise quickly, showing their teeth. He welcomes any challenge in art and has been heard to say “MRFF Unh PhFFShg” while eating.

Artist statement:

The technique in ROY G BIV could only be the theme of hothouse-chance encounter. When creating each image, I had no idea what it would be, nor how I would involve them all into a story. I created multiple takes of each colour to find the right image that would spark my imagination.
