We apply a great methodology

Phase One

Project Analysis, Consultation and Research

In this initial phase, we listen and note all the exact client's requirements. We discuss project time frames, key factors and the clients' budget for the required service or product. This phase is the ramp that takes us to the second phase, designing.

Phase Two

Design Concepts, Revisions and Finalisation

The second phase involves the beautiful process of converting the clients desired outcome into the seed of the creative solution. We present a variety of ideas that are, together with the client, tweeked, chopped and moulded into what will be something perfect for the client's brief.

Phase Three

Concept Execution and Creative Development

Depending on the service or product that you purchased, this is the phase where we roll up our sleeves and do all that it takes to develop the best possible outcome from our brief.

Phase Four

Testing before and after we test.

With our magnifying glasses on hand, with fine comb, spell check, proof read, measure, test, examine, trial run and do a standard checklist before we submit the clients' purchased product or service, so to make sure that all is order.

Phase Five

Product Submission or Service Finalisation

It is at this final stage that we hand over all that we have developed for the client and finalise all services for that particular brief. Maintainence plans and support systems become relevant at this stage to ensure that the client's satisfaction is stable at peak level.

Spotted from one of Jan Van Riebeek’s ship in 1652 was the last original Skin-hide Shield Surfer from the blue shores of what was then called Zululand.

It is the perfect piece if you are all about innovation and a person who challenges conventional thinking and perception.

Azania and the magician

400mm x 300mm acrylic on canvas

The magicians charm seems to have Azania in a trance. He has a small but powerful hold on Azania who seems to believe everything he tells her. His magic has Azania believing that Swaziland and Lesotho are not Part of South Africa, but Madagascan and Mauritius are part of Africa regardless of the fact that they are an ocean apart. The magician has used great magic to turn many Azanians into Ancestors. Ancestors who only seem to have an appetite for spilled alcohol. He is so powerful. Azania is weak in all his strengths because he doesn’t understand the magicians need for so much gold. It’s a long narrow path to that golden way of life for Azania but it a risk so pretty. The picks and shovels are bling worthy. Abracadabra. Abracadabra. Abracadabra.

Reptiliano

Ok. Here’s how it went down. Thato Chai, the artist was preparing for an art piece. He gathered his resources which were candles, spray paint, acrylic paint and the urge to paint.

After the wax cooled down, he sprayed green aerosol on the wax and waited for it to dry up. That was it. Just an ordinary abstract art piece. Two weeks later, he saw something in the painting that he never saw before. The figure that he had made, suddenly appeared to have an alien or lizard texture and features of several tones of green. So scaly and bubbly at the same time. At this point, research was a must. He Googled lizard people and his findings were quite interesting.

Diski Dab

400mm x 300mm acrylic on canvas

Sometimes idiski fused with a bit of dance can be a spectacular advantage when used in the field of play. The trick is to keep that song that makes you dance in your head for long periods. The trick is to let the song or the music part of your body, soul and mind. Once you master this, the whole game starts to change. You become in control of your every move, situation, your opponents and the outcome of the game. This dynamic ability to transform a soccer pitch into dance floor takes a lot of practice and understanding that at the end of the day, football is just a game to be enjoyed. This concept of being musically dynamic on the field is emphasized by the applied layout. The artist has painted leg, soccer boot and ball enter from the top left of the painting. Literally going off and back on to the pitch again with a dabbing finish.
