Laura Pannack

Every now and again life makes interesting little twists and turns.
Tonight I met Laura Pannack at the D&AD Student Sharp'ner event that we both talked at.
I'd known Laura for years via mutual friends from Brighton (where we both studied). I don't think we ever met when we were living in that city, but we met numerous times when our mutual friends came up to visit London and we all met up.

I knew she was a photographer, but not much more.
Well, it turns out I've been following her work without putting a face to the images.

I'm an almost obsessional follower of the Guardian Weekend Magazine. The magazine's featured Laura's work numerous time over the past year, including a big article on her brilliant ongoing documentation of YBN (Young British Naturists), which I felt was one of the most fascinating, and beautifully captured photographic collections I saw last year.

Sensitivity and human empathy is at the forefront of her personality and work. I'm really excited about all of her ongoing and future projects.

Phew! It really does go to show, you sometimes never know who you're sharing a pint with.

Just beautiful work.


D&AD Student Sharp'ner

Tonight I will be speaking at the D&AD Student Sharp'ner talks. It's all to do with the D&AD Student Awards.
I've been asked to speak for bang-on 6minutes, and apparently I'm first on. So come see me talk if you'd like.

The event takes place at Vibe bar, Brick Lane, E1 6QL. Starts at 6:30pm, and will last no longer than a couple of hours.

Hopefully see you there!

I'm gearing up for the next promo shoot at the end of the month. It's for Keaton Henson.
I've been listening to his album "Dear..." on repeat recently.

Really looking forward to this one

Sorry, I've been a bit slow on this one.
5 days ago the lovely guys at It's Nice That published a little interview with me about my top 6 books on my bookshelf.

Here it is...

and it feature's Richard's (my cat's) bum in high resolution! Enjoy!

We Have Decided Not To Die

A short film by Daniel Askill.

I remember seeing this 5 years ago. It was in Issue 8 of Specialten Magazine.
It had quite an impact on me.
I've just revisited it today, after being reminded of it at a talk I went to in the Autumn where Bif showed it as an inspiration.

A wonderful piece of work...

I'm Planning to Find This Cash Point at the Weekend

This was posted by my friend Christa Holka on Facebook today. Via her friend Natalie Curran...

"This is a totally legit/operating cash machine in east london with the language choices "English" or "Cockney." My friend Natalie Curran happened upon it a few days ago choosing 'english' to get her cash but had to go back and try again with 'Cockney.' this is what she saw..."

Sam Pilling

Once a runner at Blink, I remember him helping me test some kaleidoscopic patterns for the Little Boots "Remedy" promo.
Now, at only 24 years old, he's gone and produced this for the David Lynch competition.

On £450, my jaw is on the floor....


What Goes With a Pencil Skirt?...

Of course!!!

(thanks to Tim Main for this one)
