Sweet View

Sweet View (a bold venture from Charlotte and me selling a series of London based art prints online, see here) is slowly taking shape. Eventually we're going to have a print each for 12 inner London boroughs, but we've decided to launch with a select six as soon as I finish drawing them.

It shouldn't be too long now - I've done most of them. Three of them are markets.

The Lambeth one is Brixton:

The Southwark one is Borough:

And the Tower Hamlets one will be Columbia Road:

We also have a holding page and a mailing list - email if you'd like to be added to it.

We both saw The Social Network the other day, and it has filled out tiny entrepreneurial heads with dollar signs. "You know what's cool?" we say as we wonder who will play us in Sweet View: The Movie. This is our time, possibly.

OXJAM flyers

Oxjam sounds like something Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall would have on toast, and is actually a month long series of sprawling music events raising money for Oxfam. Think Camden Crawl but good. Felix and Jacob are friends of mine with great names, and are at the helm of this years Brixton event on 23 October.

I helped a little with these plyers (posters/flyers):

Bloody boring

I might start putting some more strips and stuff up here, like I used to.

This one marks a new beginning, and a reason why.

Stinky post

Ah, can you smell it? That's the damp metallic whiff of an unattended blog. A combination of stale J cloth, old milk and burnt out pixels.

Well rest assured that the great lumbering mass that is my life continues apace. Since my last post I've been to spain and italy, a wedding and a funeral, seen a town and a social network and weathered the international storm of Gamugate.

I also drew this picture of Sam Macrory for his 30th birthday. It's him with all the big names he's interviewed over the years.

Can you tell who they are yet? Apparently he showed this to his colleagues and they recognised everyone, so if you don't you have only your own political ignorance and not my bad caricatures to blame. If you're stuck, here is a key.

I played scrabble too. Looking at my letters (and the internet) I see my next move should have been VOLUTIN which is something grainy you find in cells, like porridge.

I also watched some people on sofas on computers, and a guy from Lemon Jelly making sweet music under a bridge.

If you want, you can listen to the music whilst looking at the picture for the full immersive experience.
