With a piping bag and a whole lot of butter icing I piped one letter after the other, a 'b' and 'o' and an 'n' and then repeated each letter over and over until I felt that my hand eye coordination did the letters justice and until I'd covered our kitchen table sufficiently with sugary buttered letters. I then photographed the most legible of the lot and drew over the photographs with makeshift tracing paper (a paper table cloth pieced together with ducktape) before scanning it in....oh and then we ate all the letters with brown bread.....odd but quite delightful.

Me and Chloe finally decide on a name for our future web based design projects.
Combining illustration, graphic and web design with her web developing and digital strategies skills we hope to breed a few unicorns along the way.
Here is our new holding page and collaborative business cards.

Me and Ollie Bremner started this post project a few weeks ago. The idea being that we post each other stuff via snail mail alone and that the other then works on top of it, namely bearded men and imaginary animals : Imaginanimals. I like the idea of silently reacting to someone else.
Here is one: his before & my after.
The Rookie Creative Team came over to 15 Grove End Road to shoot this amazing model. Betwixt my 1960's brown floral bath tiles and our smashed door..... and she's rocking it.

I had a meeting with Pentagram today to discuss the branding development at NHE and had the most amazing and insightful meeting with John Rushworth. Upon departure I decided to have a short stop off in the ladies toilet to deposit a small flyer about cottage collective and the artists that are involved. Follow the links below to see their work.....

Built/designed this Iframe to connect people with Mahikis social networks ie Youtube, Spotify and Twitter. The concept is based around Honey Mahikis beach hut and each floor is clickable and reveals a different part of her house. It'll continue with sections for competitions, games and hopefully some gifs.....

A new project and a new incentive. Leo has set up his printing press in the garage along with rows and draws and shelves and mountains of typefaces and letterblocks. Yesterday we learnt how to set up the press and print and by golly was it nice to create an image using wooden letters, to feel the bite on the press as you pull it down to print and then to lift up the newsprint away from the blocks and feel the tacky wetness of the ink.
Computers. An afterthought in comparison.
Manipulated after scanning. Computers are helpful I guess.

It started as a little thought and now after a week of splendid bliss painting the skies, drawing the shadows and living in a hedonistic heaven we return with more plans. Beautiful people must live a beautiful life.
8 Artists. One House. One Week.
The Article will appear in the Sunday Times on the 15th July.
