James Rizzi

 Rizzi's reputation was established by his small-scale graphic work. This appeared almost simultaneously in the bosoms of both the art establishment and the counterculture, as he exhibited work at the Brooklyn Museum in 1976 and designed an album sleeve and animated videos for the new wave band Tom Tom Club in the early 80s. He developed his talent for the eye-catching, the quirky and sometimes the downright facile, notably for corporations in Japan. There, Rizzi worked with considerable success on television films, puzzle designs, restaurant menus, a whisky company calendar and the cover of a dictionary.

 He also adorned the bodywork of three cars in order to promote the Volkswagen Beetle in 1999, having designed three years earlier the exterior livery of a Boeing 757. Rizzi's spirited departure from the conventions of airline logos anticipated British Airways' rebranding a little later, and was rather more successful.

more from "giants events"


in Clarence Dock as the day draws to a sunset the Beatles Let it Be song was a tearjerker....

yes...it is "circuses" and maybe quite naive .... and fairy-tale-ish but those circuses not worse than "friday night nuts pub crawl" or football...or posh open...and will memories for the rest of life




giants in the city

Giants transported people to a magical world of fairy tale and it was fantastic and thousand  people engaged with them and had access on magical street theatre on their doorstep and for free.

[all photos are taken by me, unless stated otherwise]

this weekend has been "unbelievable".

Giant 'farting' gran arrives in city and thousands visit sleeping grandma to welcome her!
Thousands watched her have a whisky, a smoke of her pipe and have an afternoon "snooze".

Unbelievable show to commemorate the outbreak of World War One!

Bye Giants!!!!
