Here's something tasty to chew on !

I discovered this artist a while ago but was reminded of him the other day and thought I must share him with you. Ben Wilson uses discarded chewing gum on the streets as his canvas on which he does these tiny, colourful paintings. I just love how he has taken something totally gross and made it into something beautiful. I have never seen any of them in real life but I can imagine if I saw one walking down the street that it would be like finding a little gem amongst the cold grey streets. Definitely a better way of dealing with chewing gum than having the government spend our taxes on removing the stuff.

Well, well, well, who have we got here ?

Well the answer to that question is the naughty norwegian Esra Roise, she has done work for Vogue, Nike and Levi's to name a few and you can see why as these are brilliant ! Here are some of her beautiful , yet playful and occasionally quite cheeky, illustrations.

They are created first of all by hand and then are scanned into the computer and embellished on photoshop, magic ! Makes me want to pick up my pencil and show the world what I can do !

If you want to find out more about this illustration, her inspirations and more images click here. Do it ok ! 

Hello Hello Hello

Today we welcome to the world, I'm not going to bother creating my own poor explanation of it so i will just copy and paste the beautiful words they use to describe themselves:
'One&Other is a media brand fit for the 21st century. Our platforms will be the home of local news, culture, and conversations that inspire and empower communities for good. Out goes the negative news agenda and in comes more considered reporting, reviews, and experiences, combined with the long-lost art of storytelling and beautiful design.  
Our York editions commence with, to be shortly followed by printed periodicals. We feel the region is being increasingly starved of balanced coverage, so we’re making it our mission to re-inject the relevance, intelligence, charm, beauty and purpose back into local media.
We also believe that local media have a responsibility beyond profit that needs to be protected, that is to serve, enlighten, empower and advance communities. For this to happen within One&Other, we are guided by three principles:
  1. That we must operate from within the communities that we serve
  2. That we must seek to employ local knowledge and talent wherever possible
  3. That all profits are reinvested into making us stronger and the creation of more social value
By setting up as a Community Interest Company (a form of Social Enterprise), we can control our own destiny and honour this commitment.
