Just had the pleasure of returning back from LOOP Arts Fair in Leeds... and I have to say, it was a beautiful way to spend some days. Beyond the fact that it would obviously be amazing based on whats written above... the actuality of it was something else. All the artists were super personable, everyone was down to earth... had the chance to draw live in front of some of my favourite illustrators... and it was just a great atmosphere. I would liken it to an illustrators Byker Grove.
Highlights included: Sister Arrows greenhouse stand, Matt the Horse's presentation, Introduction to Risograph machines and seeing the likes of James Jarvis, Lizzy Stewart, Jez Burrows and Nous Vous in action.
Roll on LOOP Arts Fair 2012

SO. This is pretty much the shape of whats pleasing me this week. Usually, theres a YouTube video left on repeat whilst I work. In the past we've seen the talking dog, monkeys riding dogs, freerunning dogs... but we've dropped the K9 in favour of Weng Weng. In the mould of a world famous average height high charisma special agent, Weng Weng is a 2'9' superspy working for the Philipino interpol. Enjoys fighting crime on the back of a mini moto, rocking a gat and a rocket pack... and loving disco!
I was introduce to Weng Weng by hip hop crew 'The Chuds'. Careful mind... the track and associated video are dangerously addictive. Check it HERE

Anyone that knows me knows that there is little that I enjoy more than a good dig about in the vaults of wrestling history. I'm also knee deep in my own wrestling homage series!
SO... imagine my excitement to mooch over to illustration legend Jack Teagles BLOG and see that he has his own little celebration of Wrestlemania 1. Wonderful.
