Obey Obama!

Barack Obama and Shepard Fairey... good names, great combo! Follow this link for a Guardian newspaper video (3mins 11sec) about a recent exhibition of iconic Obama art.

I'm a long time fan of Obey Giant, so head over there for plenty more o' the good stuff.

West Coast Thank You Card.

Me and the missus went on a grand tour of the West Coast of the United States recently. We had a super time, in part because of our six super hosts. I designed this image as a thank you card to them. If you look closely you can see several significant items including:-

- Five keys for the five houses we stayed in.
- Three stars for the three states we visited.
- The three dogs, a pelican, a snake and a squirrel that we saw.
- A Longhorn for our favorite Texan tourguide.
- The logos of the baseball teams we saw.

I'll let you work out what the rest of the symbols represent.

Paint & Bricks

At first glance this looks like a piece of Daim graffiti, but look closer.

This is the Birbeck College Film Centre, winner of the 2008 RIBA award. Never before have I seen a piece of architecture that blurs the lines between artistic disciplines so completely. I don't know about you, but I think that it's stunning.
