too. much. tv.

why can't all ads be as creative as these? because then id never leave my sofa.

i love how this ad makes festivals look so glam and cool when really you always look like shit and sweat like a beast. it features sweet disposition by the temper trap.

this ad was "devised by creative agency Fallon, features various animated cardboard characters created by Peepshow Collective’s Chrissie Macdonald" (from peepshow's blog)

car ads are usually so boring, so this makes a nice change with all its experimental visuals, its well buff some might say. features the track Transient by Pluxus.

calling anyone with a spare wall...

I just found this site for anyone who has a good wall and doesn't mind it being used for graffiti purposes. Its also an agency for artists who wish to get some public exposure. perfect for people who are worried about illegally painting on random walls and getting caught, nobody likes a crim rekkid. Soon as I get my own place im deffo signing up.

These are the people that organised the cans festival last year under that tunnel down leake st.

time flys when you're having fun.

right so I went to see a man about a job on tuesday because this company like rang me out the blue and said they wanted to meet up (for shits and giggles?) or whatever, so I was just happy that somebody noticed I'm looking for work. Anyway I met up with this guy from some employment agency ive never herd of in a big expensive building with a waterfeature (ofcourse) and he asked me what I was looking for, read my CV and then he laughed in my actual face, NO JOKES! i shit you not. well it was more when I said that I was facing prejudice from companies who wont take me on because of my small amount of experience. yes he really liked my use of the word prejudice. so then he notices where I'm from and starts chatting about my area and how he knows it and shit, and I'm like mate what are you doing? I need a bloody job?!? but i dont say this because it is only after this meeting that i realize what a nob jockey he was being. OH YEAH also he said the credit crunch doesnt affect IT work, but when I corrected him since my dad works in IT and his company has been crunched, he starts chatting about getting my dad a job!? that story sounds way funnier in my head.
aaaaaanyway the moral of this story is that i give up and am going to focus on my studies now.
I wrote a list last night. It was most exciting.

So this weekend I met up with Ken and we went to the craftwerk event in euston, SO worth going! I was literally in heaven, it was all these indie DIY craft illustrators, makers and designers, with their own stalls, in this hall attached to a bar. it was free entry and I left with badges, buisiness cards, flyers, a vinyl, a tatty devine lolly, a mix cd and a small china owl, most of which were freebies. boom ting.
After went to shoreditch for a looky in 72 rivington st, but I forgot it was saturday so it was closed. Fierce window display by jiggery pokery.

yeah so I was well inspired after that so I made an octopus (it does have 8 legs, you can't really see the other leg though).
Also was found out ycn have started a summer school "an intensive four week creative programme for six disciplinarily diverse graduates - launching this August"
sounds scary... but exciting!
