Third post about India- my obsession with trucks. My boyfriend thought I was a complete weirdo when I was demanding that rickshaw drivers take a detour specifically so we could pass truck garages and I could take photos. In India, the Goods Carriers (Trucks) are literally the most amazing things ever. Ken Kesey and the Merry Pranksters, The Beatles, The magic bus and all other hippies galavanting round the world on the love trail definitely took their hippie vehicle inspiration from these Indian badboys. I couldn't even capture some of the best ones as they would fly by our government bus, on the dusty, pot-holed road at a hundred mph. I am going to buy a van soon and convert it to be camper by weekend, work van by week. It is going to be banging.

Later this month, Anna and I will be talking about five things that we love along with some other very interesting designers at the next Glug. The images below is just a quick screen grab from the Glug blog but the actual post can be seen here with proper links to all the participating artists etc. You can also buy tickets here and read more about the Pick Me Up fair which Glug will be working in conjunction with. Booking tickets is recommended as places are limited and there are lots of other fun things going on during that week too so make sure you take a peek.

Here's a quick Tuesday morning post for all of you back at work. There is no end to the amusement had from anything worded/funny signage. Here is some of the best I spotted in India:
Choose a degree/profession. This was seen in Delhi and left us wondering who we would be able to trust in the emergency of a lost front tooth or such:
Believe it or not I am No 1:
'Dating the local legend (you won't)'
Fosters mineral water anyone?

Please check out our new Twitter sidebar. We may not have been as quick on the uptake as some of the earlybirds (ahem) out there but figured it is a quick and convenient way to keep people updated on our daily antics, especially when we don't have time for a lengthy, photo-illustrated blog post.

I have been very slack at posting any photos from my trip to India so now I am about to bombard, starting with the animals of India. Although there is only one bull pictured (biggest horns we saw), cows and bulls are in abundance, everywhere, doing their thing in India. They pretty much own the streets (and beaches and car parks) but they just don't quite cut the mustard compared to the goats.
I only saw one live elephant on my travels and it came in the form of a raving elephant- my favourite kind. The other one was in the museum. Stuffed. There's a first time for everything...

I was trying to find the venue of the exhibition we were in in Basel for Nike Art of Football with SHOWstudio and look what I found - look out for Lauren chatting away about our piece and me looking rather quieter than normal!

What a wicked night. I don't think the ICA were ready for scantily clad Iain!
He was our perfect muse for the evening as he sang classic tunes from our most treasured femme fatal singers (Madonna, Pj Harvey, Amy Winehouse) we created him an item of costume to wear for each song. We started by making a giant pencil, then gloves, then shoulder pieces and a music stave for his guitar finishing in the photo here in a giant warrior headdress.
We loved every minute of it despite the pre-event nerves of the pressure of creating live on the stage, roll on the next one!
