The latest issue of Bad Idea magazine is out now, I illustrated the article on Madeleine McCann in this issue, I’m not by a scanner for a couple of days to post the images in context but here are the illustrations plus one of Madeleine that wasn’t published. I also had a small part to play in the text for the article itself. Click the images to see larger versions.

If I still had my Powerbook (technically I still do but with dead pixels numbering in the hundreds, major battery issues and big white spots on the screen, it’s dead to me) then I’d get one of these cases. Via Cool Hunting

I’d desperately love one of these, my current working practice involves sitting in front of the TV with a lap tray to draw on and a chair to put my laptop/source material on. Via Boing Boing

Armin over at Quipsologies has posted a link to an excellent flick set of ambigrams, I’d like to attempt one myself some day but for now, just looking at these will have to do.

Simply the best group on Facebook. Blatantly robbed from the Guardians Guide magazine.

I’d seen his previous prints on a couple of blogs but I think this new letterpress print is the best one yet. Via LCS
