About the artwork

In 1966 I decorated the Star Rugby Club's annual dance with several large calligraphic drawings of the game, based on newspaper photographs. Bill Woods, my photographer neighbour in the Kings Building Studios, photographed them and last year his negatives were sent to me by the Taranaki Museum. I used the photos to reconstruct some of the drawings as screenprints and am amused and pleased by the result (the original drawings escaped after the dance).
