A quick snap of one of the 'I am' Orange adverts that we made props for. They are already popping up even though we are still working on the rest of the ads from the same campaign. From underground advertising to huge trackside billboards, newspapers to animated web gifs...Chrissie's name is in big, quirky, orange, glittery lights all over the city! Back to the Peepshow HQ next week for more gluey fun and frollicks. Oh yes. For now though, I am going to finish downloading Caramel, put it on, and attempt to overcome the new bout of insomnia by drifting off into a peaceful sleep halfway through...

I went out to track down another shirt like this:
but a blue one with some sort of red and white flower detail and ended up going for the wild card instead:
A weekend of adventures; much sourcing, many drawings, lots of birthdays of people called Alex, some crazy live/work spaces, all culminating in an amazing performance by Jimmy Cliff at Rise Festival. Unfortunately for us and as much of a surprise to him, the soundsystem was turned off (mid-song!) before he had the chance to perform his two most legendary songs. I assume that the license ran out at 8.30 and figured that because he came on late, this was the reason he (shamefully) got cut-off. Is it just me or could England do with relaxing the rules every now and again?! Today I felt ashamed to be a Londoner...

...We have been making a crazy, miniature, naïve-style, shanty house. Twas much fun to have a change after the more careful and considered props for Chrissie Macdonald's latest Orange ads. It is really strange and very exciting to see the ads popping up everywhere now after spending the last two months on the job (four were featured in Monday's Metro...). Keep your eyes peeled for now and I will scan some images in when I get a minute. Today we finished our house and now we are sourcing lazer guns, materials for making a moonscape play mat and other sexy Barbarella-type things. Another week of making and getting our hands dirty for a big shoot next weekend...Perfect, although I am very much missing the Redchurch St crew, the banter and the daily structure. It is all a bit haphazard again!
Oh yeah, we went to White Heat at Madame Jojo's on Tuesday to meet the Radio Clit boys about some fun, possible album artwork...Not the best place for a meeting of sorts but nonetheless a very randomly fun night on a Tuesday, made all the more dangerous with £2 vodka, soda and limes...
Everyone knows I am not a fan of fake nails in the slightest but I always keep my eyes out for Anna, moral support and all that jazz...These are the most serious find of the week, daaan Holloway. Don't mess.
P.s Bring on Jimmy Cliff at Rise Festival in Finsbury Park on Sunday. Headlining at around 7.30pm, he is not one to miss!
