I personally love the work of Carmel McCormick and also Yolanda Bartram (who is from BodyFX), they are awesome artists!
Anyway, I was kind of shocked today to find this piece of news:
You can see the actual ads here:
Luckily, the great majority of Kiwis in on-line poll voted for this kind of advertising, stating that it was very well done and reflected good Kiwi humour. Naturally, I voted for that, too. It was done tastefully and is not offensive. I actually saw this add many times on the back of the bus, but didn't realised until recently that the pilot pictured had only his black shoes and hat on out of clothing items, the rest was body paint.
Body Painting is an ancient and truly amazing art, and I hope to take part in it one day as a model.
