Norwich artist helpd take film icons on tour in the Break Charity Scrappage Rally 2012
A young artist has applied his unique style to a car which will tour Europe for charity.
The stencil art of Damian Pounds, 21, below, from Greenways, Eaton, was spotted by Phillip Roffe, managing director of Norwich computer services company Yewtek.
They are chief sponsors of the 2012 Scrappage Rally in aid of the Break Charity, which provides holidays for people with learning disabilities.
The car will be driven across France, Belgium, Holland and then back to the UK in September,

Mr Pounds used stencils and spray paint to print cult TV and film characters on to the body of the car. Frankenstein, Scarface, Star Wars, James Dean and Audrey Hepburn all feature.
Mr Pounds said: 'It was a great opportunity, I like taking on challenges, and this has the added bonus of being for a great charity. The theme and my style fitted together well, and to think my work will tour Europe is a real buzz.

'The art I make tries to connect with ordinary people, not alienate them.'
The car will be driven around Norwich in the run up, and Mr Roffe hopes it will inspire people to give what they can towards the effort.
'The car should help with the fundraising, it looks perfect. This is a win for Break and for us and Damian. Getting connected, it is a great way to work,' said Mr Roffe.
