Illustration Rally blog and project.

I came across a great little blog last week on the alphabet.

"Illustration Rally is a massive international rolling collaboration which takes a theme and runs with it!"

And roll with it they do. Having seen all the letters so far, I was so eager to join in and very disappointed to find I'd missed the chance to enter into this theme. However, I've got my name down for the next theme and very much looking forward to it.

You can find the Twitter page here and the actual blog here. 
Go look and get involved!!

Being as though I LOVE LOVE LOVE collage at the moment, I couldn't help but show you the 'B' entry by Natsuki Otani, one of the creatives who started the experimental collaboration, along with Joanne Young.

Here's to hoping there are many more running themes for the blog!!

And over the sirens of the police cars, you can hear us shout, the streets are ours!

So, I'm not very good at the whole blog thing.
Or churning out lots of work and ideas thing either for that matter!

I have had plenty of hours at work over Easter at the chocolate shop and it has kept me from working on anything other the That's Logic Zine. The zine, however, has been picking up pace rapidly. I have been receiving submissions for it and it has now been featured by the fantastic @KatyCowan on the Creative Boom website here.  Get involved if you haven't already, there's still time left!

I have a couple pieces of my own work in progress. Well, very very slow progress....

I have a new piece of work in the Alas_Icannotswim zine, well it's the front cover this time :D

In other news, I got to go to Durham last week to see a friend from uni and we went to see The King Blues in Newcastle. Going back to the O2 Academy brought some great old uni memories back. The band were incredible. The floor was bouncing well before The King Blues even came out. I haven't stopped listening to Save The World Get The Girl album  yet and I am certainly looking forward to the new album being released! A definite must see if you get the chance!!

Bring on Biffy Clyro next Friday night!!

Til next time!!
