An Awesome Project

Hello friends,

I've been thinking long and hard recently about career and future and stuff. I really want to work for myself and I start getting to the point where I'm thinking far too much about increasingly grand plans. Inevitably the harsh realities of life come in to it and I start doubting myself. So it was nice to see this inspiring little website today on the 'It's Nice That' blog. This fella named Dallas Clayton, an illustrator from LA has had an amazing journey after creating this little book for his son. Have a watch of the video and I urge you to read the pages of the book. It's beautifully illustrated and it's HERE. I'm thinking big again anyway...

Got, got, got, need

I'm a big footy fan and come to think of it I haven't mentioned the fact that the might, mighty Wolverhampton Wanderers have just about earned another season in the Premiership. I never thought I'd see the day a Wolves team played football that didn't have me clawing at the screen. The West Ham match was a truly momentous occasion in my life.

Should be a good year for football what with the World Cup as well and while on the Creative Review blog I found this little gem which harks back to my days of collecting football stickers. I managed to complete the 1995 edition but I had to go to one of those events where everyone takes their swaps and you complete the collection. I didn't even make it into the venue and instead hounded some kid who had a CD tower size stack of swap in the car park. Great days.

Anyway, this guy, Elliot Quince has hand painted some of his own stickers. 'Got, got, got, need' is exhibiting at The Offside Gallery in Islington. Might have to take a look, me thinks

Come on England...and Wolves
