Paper toys pt3

So i have finished the paper toys! The theme is based around the idea of a home for monsters who are now rubbish and not scary and now just bum around all day instead, kind of like a cat shelter or something. The red wizard can only do rubbish tricks, the ghost is too invisible, the cyclops is a narcoleptic, the skeleton is an alcoholic, the vampire is too fat and loves eating burgers and the little pink devil thing is scared of everything and is always crying. Theres more detailed/better written explanations of them (including their likes and dislikes) on the printable nets which hopefully ill put up on flikr soon!

Harry Pearce

We had a guest lecturer in today - Harry Pearce of Pentagram partner fame. He is a great guy with lots of good stories to tell, great insight and ideas and a fantastic designer. It was also interesting to get to learn a little bit about the behind the scenes of one of the most respected (and a personal favourite of mine) design companies in the world.
Anyway i met him at uni after the lecturer. I was in the toilet having a nosebleed and he came in. I told him i really enjoyed his lecture this morning and that i get nosebleeds when its too hot whilst holding bloody tissues to my face. He told me his son gets nosebleeds too when its too hot and that graphic design is hard work but its worth the slog. I don't think ill ever forget the time i met Harry Pearce.

A re-design

you may have noticed that ive redesigned the blog! the templates they give you on blogger can prove quite versatile it seems. I think it looks approx 1million times better than it did before, dont you? please tell me what you think.

Oh and by the way go and get the new Portishead album, its super special!
