Nascent Ideas


I now have a tumblr page, I’m probably going to be posting a lot of the stuff I used to post on this blog on there instead and keep the blog as a process/portfolio blog.

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!

I love finding a “new” blog, reading through the archives is as fun as reading through the back issues fo a favourite magazine. Swiss Miss is updated extremely often with really great content, I suggest you check it out! LINK

OK, check these things out.

Influenced by Paul Rand, featuring Cornelius, Dan the Automator, and The Roots and with Biz Markie giving beatbox lessons.

Now what if I tell you this is a new kids show?

Via ComputerLove, Print Magazine has a little feature on the new Nickelodeon show, “Yo Gabba Gabba” including these two youtube videos. I’m really looking forward to it!
