The stardust won't settle

I designed the Jacinda Stardust artwork in just over 2 hours whilst hiding from the scorching Madrid midday sun in the back of a café. While Aotearoa New Zealand slept, Jacinda Stardust was born.

 

The idea arrived to me fully-formed. The moment Bill English uttered his now-infamous line during the Leaders’ debate, I set to work, reshaping David Bowie’s iconic Aladdin Sane cover with the Labour leader.

 

Since September the artwork has been shared far and wide: profile pictures, newspaper features, two sell-out poster print runs, t-shirts, a book cover, and at least one cake (a Victoria sponge, I believe). Jacinda Stardust really won’t settle.

 

It’s been fun but the demand for prints and merchandise is too great to keep up with, which is why, in the sprit of openness, I am releasing the artwork elements to download here for free under a Creative Commons non-commercial share alike licence. This image has become part of Aotearoa New Zealand’s pop culture, and I would like Aotearoa New Zealand to own it. 

 

That means you can now make t-shirts and canvas bags for yourself, get it tattooed, print out the poster to hang in your living room and adapt it too. All I ask is that you do not in any way create or sell commercial products with it or based on it. Any questions or commercial licence usage please contact me.
