With our Let’s Be Brief hat on we’ve teamed up with street art specialist Jester Jacques Gallery and their Pop-Up at Boxpark this February for Carfumes: The After School Club for Creative Types workshop.
Working with LBB’s very own ‘The Keen Eye’ illustrator Sky Nash, you can give loved and not so loved brands a tongue-in-cheek makeover.
Through illustration and witty copywriting turn well-known brands and straplines upside down / inside out and help create a Zine made from the nights work – all in the name of silly.
Have a break, have a quick crap; make some wonderful Carfumes.
FREE EVENT | 20th February 2013 | 6pm – 9pm | Boxpark Shoreditch, 2-4 Bethnal Green Rd, London E1 6G
If you’re only in it for the presents then we appreciate your honesty. We’re only in it for the food.
If you’re not in it all, then fair play to ya. Either way, here’s a little something courtesy of LBB Talent’s very own Sky Nash.
Appy Xmas: one day every card will be an e-card.
Eleanor Crow’s subtle watercolours exude the quaint, very non-corporate charm of London’s independent tea shops to snack bars. The individual character of each establishment shines through in these watercolours.
A range of these fine London Cafe’s were featured in It’s Nice That this week, featuring our very own Cafe Bliss. Erkan will be right chuffed with that.
At twenty%extra, we believe The future is clever™. Sky Nash thinks the future is rude, but she’d just had a bad day. An illustrator with nothing to say is just an illustrator. Sky is an illustrator with style, and even more importantly, insight. All of which makes her work a visual narrative of modern living. Perfect really, as the work we’re doing together will be a reflection of the modern world we live in.
Rollover the images for a peep into Sky’s world. And watch this space.
If you really want a job doing, you need to grab the bull by the horns, or in studio-mate Oli’s case, jump on a plane to Egypt. Olivier Kugler’s Cairo is a rich illustrative tapestry based on first hand experience, research and personal insight.
The prolific use of viewer generated content in news media has seen the idea of ‘on the ground’ reporting become a bit of a branded exercise in recent times. That is to say broadcasters either announce their exclusion from a situation or their direct access to unfettered information.
The Guardian picked up on this goldmine of alternative content to run a middle page spread worth every minute of time it takes to read and absorb. The content makes the broadsheet seem innovative and insightful, because, well, Olivier Kugler is innovative and insightful.
To all the clotheslining, piledriving, DDTing, four-leg-locking greats of the past; a graphic tribute by I Love Dust. Can ya dig it?
We popped down to St. Pauls a few weeks back to finally see the Occupy London camp for our selves. Whilst talking to a young fella, we came across another occupant who happened to be giving his mum – who was apparently checking up on him on her way home from work – a tour of the site before she left. The story makes the last image in this series particularly poignant. The others speak for themselves.
Banksy pays real attention to the world around him, which is why unlike many artists – musical, visual or otherwise – his work will always be around us.
Public unrest at the role of ‘the corporation’, bailed-out banks and company CEOs still pouring bonuses into their pockets, juxtaposes with the the nigh on beatification of Steve Jobs. These really are interesting times we live in.
Occupy Wall Street protestors have captured a portion of the headlines recently – much in the same way as our own St. Pauls brigade. The arguments for being there however, haven’t captured the headlines in quite the same way.
If you were having problems understanding the nature of the argument amongst protesters who are – contrary to mainstream media outlets – indeed part of the general public, hopefully David McCandless‘ broad info-graphic brush strokes will have made things that little bit easier to digest, despite being very hard to swallow.
A wonderfully retro retrospective twist on a sci-fi favourite by Olly Moss, who has the uncanny ability knack of bringing a touch of ‘film noir’ to film classics ranging from Blues Brothers, Rocky and Robocop.
These posters have a real art house feel to them, which when considering the production process involved in making Star Wars in particular, is pretty apt. In the Return of the Jedi poster, I can almost smell the humid air of the Dagobah planet. I go too far? OK I’ll stop now.
After having had the privilege of being featured as part of this series, I missed the opening night of Paul Cummings‘ latest exhibition at the Exposure Gallery in London. I – like you – have 13 days to atone for my sins.
Sincerity and candidness were the order of the day here, with Pauly capturing the subjects as he knows them. Paul used technology (in this case an iPhone) as his starting point, before bringing the portraiture back to the oldest of artistic mediums: charcoal. He made my hair look better than it does normally so I have to thank him for that.

The exhibition is FREE, and runs until Friday 30th September 2011. The gallery is open from Monday to Friday, 10.00 – 18.00, and the address is 22-23 Little Portand Street, London W1W 8BU.
