Going Against The Grain: Jaco Haasbroek Does Z to A

We’ve featured the work of South african artist Jaco Haasbroek earlier (in case you missed it, click here), and it seems he has started a new project – to illustrate movie characters whose names start with a letter of the alphabet. This is what he has posted to his Flickr account.

Word has it that Jaco is looking for some suggestions from joe public. If you can think of some memorable movie characters to use, let us know in the comments and we’ll see if we can pass them onto him.

Update (December 9th): Ignore the above, the series is done and dusted. See them all on Jaco’s Facebook page.

And if you happen to like it, you can buy the prints – 250mm x 250mm, blockmounted, R250 excluding P&P. More on that here.
