Race against the clock to complete 24 mural in 24 hours

A Camberley artist has been commissioned to create a giant poster of 24's Jack Bauer, from more than 1,400 London postcards.

Artist and cartoonist Quentin Devine has created a 24m-sq portrait of 24's Kiefer Sutherland using 24 types of London postcards in 24 hours, to celebrate the launch of Live Another Day on DVD and Blu-ray.

Mr Devine used 1,485 postcards from the nation's capital to create the huge mural of Jack Bauer, played by Kiefer Sutherland, who is a counter terrorist unit agent in 24.

To finish the piece in the time limit, Mr Devine, from Camberley, had to lay one postcard down every minute. He used a warehouse in Loseley Park to pull it together and the final piece is on display in Borough Market, where much of the filming for 24: Live Another Day took place.

Mr Devine said: "Just like Jack I had to meticulously plan my strategy, sticking one post card down to the giant 24 m-sq canvas every minute, before time ran out.

"I certainly felt the pressure as the clock was ticking but luckily for me the fate of the world wasn’t resting in my hands.

"Seeing the final artwork being installed in Borough Market is the perfect homage to Live Another Day."


Mr Devine, who has also worked for Red Stripe, and TV channels Dave and Gold, said: "I've never actually watched a full episode of 24 before I did this project, but I loved 'Lost boys' as a teen and Kiefer was my favourite in the movie as the lead Vampire, so it was an honour to work on."

Live Another Day is the ninth season of the show, and takes place in London, with 12 episodes instead of the usual 24. In it, Jack Bauer must save President James Heller from an imminent attempt on his life.

Kiefer Sutherland and the Live Another Day cast and crew dropped into Walton earlier this year to shoot scenes for the new show at the former Birds Eye HQ.
