I am enjoying illustrated tweets today. Lovely and peculiar illustrations by Katie Vernon of tweets plucked from the public timeline. Of particular note are the father-like hairy legged animals; my father is made of 90% beard and had some glasses exactly like these in the 80s. He was a trend setter, and is still rocking the look today. (note: referring to image on the left)

Pandamonium

November 3, 2009

I’ve finally loaded up iMovie and operated youtube, and here is the beautiful result. Interactive panda design from WWF Pandamonium project at Selfridges. There were others, but this was the most interesting design (apart from the bear confused as to whether WWF meant wrestling). Article about the project here.

Treehouse Gallery

August 8, 2009

Cycled to Regent’s Park Treehouses today. Consumed ice cream and saw two Lord Byrons (aka quiffy haired solitary men possing and reading books). We ambled around treehouses and I was reminded about numerous years of childhood naggings for a treehouse – nothing quite as fancy as these things, I’d have been happy with a wooden platform (or rather, that’s what I was pitching to my Dad as the simplest starting point).

At Uni there were rumours of a treehouse two students had made years ago. The directions were ‘up the hill, on the left near the field,’ which was great, but Sussex University happens to be on the Sussex downs: There are a lot of trees. Turns out it existed, and after a good forage round a massive wood we found it. It was miles off the ground and after drunk attempts, a few people made it up into the tree. It wasn’t bad, but needed some love. Then we navigated home with no torch with me using my camera as an occasional torch, ruining everyone’s night vision.

Today ended cycling home avoiding a big rain cloud. The treehouses were pretty sorted; they had umbrellas.

Here’s some photos that don’t ruin surprises, and the flickr set is here.

Beautiful shooting. Came across this guy from a set of underwater shots he’d done that attracted a bit of press. Then I found the rest of his photos. His flickr is here.

I’ve really liked reading this blog recently.  It’s by photographer Thomas Prior and although it doesn’t contain many words, the short descriptions and different photo choices (chosen for non-portfolio reasons) make it very lovely.  And the photos are ace.

Suspect I have picked mostly girly photos. Here is a nice picture of fire to counteract this.
