Sam Hunt’s poem “Beware the Man” has been performed by him for over 40 years (albeit with slightly differing words). Dick says about the genesis of this collaboration with the well-known NZ poet. “In 2011 an advertising agency had the bright idea of getting me to paint a Sam Hunt poem for a campaign they were working on. The advertisement never happened but by then Sam and I were away on our own trajectory. 'Beware the Man' is one of Sam's most popular poems. I modelled the lettering and the colours on a 'Trespassers Beware' sign I photographed up in Northland. The bits of red reflector tape around the edges seemed to add an appropriate drama to the poem's message!”
