Thoughts from April 2012

carving books into works of art

If you ever find yourself wondering what to do with that old pile of books in the corner, why not turn them into a work of art?

You probably won't end up with something quite as fancy as this, but it's certainly a nice way of recycling something that might otherwise end up in the bin.

Over on instagram last week (clever photo sharing app that makes everyone and everything look considerably cooler than it actually is), Ben (Head of Colouring In at fruit towers) was taking drawing requests for the day. Kitty asked him to draw a newt in a bra riding a rainbow in a thunderstorm. At sea. So he did.


A celebrity for a day

Thomas is an ordinary man. He puts his trousers on one leg at a time, just like the rest of us. He is not famous.

But with the help of a few friends, the power of suggestion and chinese whispers, he was able to visit the mall as A Super Celebrity. Security guards, stores closing, people handing him babies. It looks fun. Watch it happen, it's pretty fascinating.
