Following on from my post about the Keep Calm and Carry On removals van I saw, Mark Coop contacted me about his fledgling clothing label that features the same design. I particularly like the tote bag below.

Great idea here, I’d love to get my hands on one to see what it’s like. CD on one side, vinyl on the other. Via Complex

Any child growing up in the 80’s has plenty of fond memories of Street Fighter II (including some dodgy kebab shop versions where you could literally fill the screen with fireballs) so this trailer for the new Street Fighter game already had me excited before I even watched it. Once I watched it though I was even more hyped up to see it, the animation in the trailer is absolutely superb.  Via CPLuv

I went and saw the Invader exhibition at the Lazardes Gallery in London at the weekend, I really need to start taking my camera out with me, I’m afraid you’re stuck with phone cam pictures again. I threw a quick shot in there of the back of the “Jaws” piece too so you can see how it looks. One thing that disappointed me when I first heard about them though is that he doesn’t “solve” them to make the images, rather he follows every child’s solution and just peels the stickers!
