The works of Frank Frazetta - the original bad boy of fantasy art (1928 - 2010). Inspiring work, consisting of pencil drawings, pen and ink sketches of life studies, observations with pure visual mastery that also took him from comic book illustrations in his early days through to his heavy involvement in the production of live-action movies.
Flew to South Africa for commercial TVC shoot. My first day in Maboneng, Johannesburg checking out the scene. I’m colour co-ordinated ;-) We had an amazing time with DCMN crew shooting the Ring.com commercial
British fine art photographer David Stewart’s new work uses the advertising agency as his subject and theme put a massive smile on my face. Clever, satirical, witty and think of Mad Men bought right up to date 2018. I myself working in an advertising agency and having trained as a fine artist find David’s new body of work ‘Paid Content’ definitely striking a chord.

In October 2017 the Science Museum Group unveiled a new logo and branding by North Design. Eloquent and striking. I'm a big fan of the Science Museum from a young child going on school trips, holiday outings to passing by everyday when i was studying and working at the Royal College of Art in South Kensington. North have done this new design really well and given it a fresh distinct identity.

Yesterday I went to see the show Der Stand der Bilder an exhibition of works by Zbigniew Rybczynski and Gábor Bódy both specialising as media pioneer artists. The exhibition was held at the Akademie Der Künste, Berlin-Tiergarten. Beyond any doubt the work on show of Zbigniew Rybczynski was thought provoking, memorable and inspiring for new media artists. Two works in particular struck a chord and both were videos; Tango and Imagine the latter being the famous music video for John Lennon's song Imagine released in 1986. The choreography and timing of Tango is pure cleverness with a touch of genius. In Tango no one person or subjects ever crosses the path of the other even when the room is rapidly populating. I now see how Zbigniew and his work is influential to the likes of contemporary directors namely Michel Gondry.
