....Before he leaves to go and work and live in Tawain,
Quoc sets out his stall at (Up) Market, Brick Lane. He will
continue to design his own label, and-i and is also
venturing in to the shoe market. So watch this space.

Roy and Lic are 1....

Elbow....

....Have made a beautiful album. I'm not ashamed of jumping
on the post Mercury Award Winning bandwagon. One Day Like This
is the stand out trackfor me - lyrically and musically perfect.

Final day....*DELAYED*

....Tonight, (now next Tuesday), my gap is no more. At 5.30pm the space
left by my missing two front teeth will be filled.
Forever. I'm hoping it's a simple procedure to turn
me from all all this:

Stace's Place....

....Looks like a Wallpaper* interiors shoot. Nice.

Dad in London....

....for a couple of days. Staying at l'hotel du Roy of course!
We went for dinner tonight at a newly opened Italian up the
road - so small it's not listed anywhere and it's only item on
the menu is pasta......still, good pasta mind. And real cheap.

Magic Paint & It Might Never Happen....

....Alicia and Louise's design collective, Knock Knock Design,

Name Dropped....

....I managed to weasel my way on to another person's
blog. A fixed gear blog called Fixie Pixie to be precise.
Thanks for the post Calvin.

Liam's new set up....

....I joined Liam on a voyage out to Putney so he could
purchase a new track bike. He is now the proud owner
of a beautifully restored 1950 Holdsworth:



Seizure!....

....Roger Hiorns has created an art installation within
a disused London tenemant. 'Seizure' shows blue crystals
formed on the walls of the flat after he pumped a copper sulphate
solution in to the bedsit and left it for several weeks. When
drained, the crystal growth was revealed.



Roy & Lorenzo....

....After seeing new cycling magazine The Ride, which featured
testimonials alongside illustrative work, I spoke to Lorenzo
about sending in our own piece. I decided to write about the
day I lost my front teeth in a cycling accident. 'Zo created the
accompanying illustration. This is the result, which we'll submit
shortly. Here's hoping it'll get printed.....

Marathon Man....

....Ed is (foolishly) running the New York
Marathon. However, he is (admirably) raising
money for Bowel Cancer UK at the same time.
Click here to sponsor him and therefore
donate to charity. Ed is even growing a
'tasche for the event, not to be shaved until
November 2nd. Here's a pic from the weekend:

Lynnda Needles....

....is the wonderful pseudonym for our friend
Lynn Cockburn. She has set up a blog documenting
her beautiful knitwear designs and general mumblings.
I have created a permanent link, (see right), but for
now all you need to do is click here and enjoy!


Lynn Cockburn for VON SONO

New York, New York....

....Start spreading the news.
I've booked to go to NYC for Halloween / Marathon
weekend. I'll be joining Ed, who is running said
marathon and Lorenzo who is going for a jolly like
me. Looking forward seeing both Andreas & Matt out
there too.


Thurs 30th Oct - Tue 4th Nov 2008.

Skyping....

....continues.


Dad, (centre) at Joan (left) & Eric's (right) house.


Lorenzo & Nathan share a rum & a chat.

Juicy....

....a couple of old ads I was reminded of today.
Kia-Ora in particular is amazing. I feel 7 again!

Adam's travels....

....Mr Blencowe has decided to ride his motorbike from
London to Delhi. He's hoping all 125cc will get him there,
but I'm not sure whether it's bravery or stupidity!
He is updating a blog of his trip, which is sure to throw
up many a story and surprise. You can also sponsor him here.

Ruth in London....

....for the weekend. I caught up with her today whilst
perusing the markets in the East End.

Skype....

....I have finally joined the Skype clan after I got
a web cam & microphone from mum & dad. I've
made a few calls already, but I felt this afternoon's
natter with Nana deserved a screen grab. She's the
most tech 80 year old I know.....if only she figured
out how to point the camera at her face!

TBC's pizza parlour....

....Home made pizza, pissing about on bikes and
fixie dvds. Lovely. TBC continues.











Uprock....

....I've spotted these uprock artworks all over
London, but never knew who was responsible.
Now I do - Andy Uprock.
Made out of plastic cups wedged in to wire fences,
Uprock creates fantastic typographic images against
a usually mundane urban backdrop.



Exposure....

....Just opened up the latest Vice magazine and spotted
Andreas' ad for Lee Jeans. Check out his website and if
you're ever in Brooklyn, NYC then try and hook up.

Roy Bupa....

....Clearly Bupa caught a glance of me before
pushing forward with their latest ad campaign:

Warped....

....Whilst scrolling through ffffound, I saw the work
of Stephan Balleux, a Belgian artist. The textures of
the paint and warped faces are incredible. The latter
almost Francis Bacon-esque.



Bugsy's Beast....

....Bugsy & Ross have been busy directing Wild Beasts'
latest video 'Brave Bulging Buoyant Clairvoyants'.
Under the name OneInThree they have added to their
great portfolio by creating a hypnotic visual remeniscent
of Op Art and the Bauhaus era. Good work chaps.
