Spindle Magazine: Ikea Heights


An article in Spindle Magazine about a group of film-makers who find free locations, ready-made sets in which to film in... it's great! Check it out 'Ikea Heights'

On a familiar side-note, this kinda reminds me of some misspent summers with friends when I was 14-15. Talking crap to passers by in the street, parks, people's front doors... all it took was a recording camcorder and a white lie - that it was some sort of school project, faux interviews to alleviate some of the summer holiday boredom, chutzpah!
Can't imagine teenagers doing that sort of thing nowadays, 'raar'... pass me my slippers now that's fierce. Actually, what am I talking about, mobile phones, it happens all the time, except with a mobile I guess you can't really get away with the pseudo disclosure of 'erm, this is for a school project'.

Robin

 He's staring at me now, in a few minutes he'll go back to staring at a wall I expect.

Chocolate Earworm

 
'Do you dream in chocolate?’ that’s weird, right?! That’s the subconscious power of advertising right…wrong… than you need - insert some sort of commercially clich├ęd line. Stuck in my head and driving me nuts, why are you there Lindt chocolatiers!

The Modern Universe

Although not as modern as it once was, still a great cover ! Line drawings by A.Spark. Published by Readers Union - Hodder & Stoughton. (London 1957)

RE-ZOOM



 This book is great! A wordless book showing a series of scenes, each gets further away from the last. By Istvan Banyai, (1995, published by the Penguin Group)




Arrow to the Sun





Picked up this rather lovely 1974 Penguin book. Illustrated by Gerald McDermott. I really like the graphic and bold imagery. The art work is rendered in gouache and ink.

While We Slept



  Bit of an experiment; though I'd draw using a really old iMac today...veerryy slooow, Photoshop barely functions. See how I work around it...in a limitation alters process kinda way- forcing me to go simple rudimentary on my Mac, was liberating graphic fun. Zzz's all round to the sleepy theme.
