Won't somebody please think of the children!

"I was driving past a bus stop full of children". Oh no, I thought, it's another one of those graphic adverts which shows children getting hit by cars to warn people off speeding/drink driving.

No wait, it's a National Accident Helpline advert. About a car hitting another car. The children were fine and completely irrelivant, but boy did it get my attention.

I think this could be the start of a whole new style of advertising:

"I was walking down the street the other day when I saw a child being held at gunpoint. Later that day I ate some Pringles. Once you pop, you can't stop!"

Mortimor, you diabolical!

The other day, to my suprise, I recieved a certificate and cheque in the post for being voted one of the Art, Media and Design department's top Level 2 students.

In fact my work is so well known in the department that they even spelt my name wrong!

Still it was quite an honour, though I was disappointed at the lack of a ceremony. Sometimes I wonder why I ever bought those formal shorts...

Hummer Mia

Thanks to Rob Campbell and all the judges who liked my idea for the APSOTW competition.

It says about my idea here:

Plus the comments go on to a much more serious issue as well, so you should read it anyway!

I've started up a new online portfolio site,

It's still hugely unfinished, but feedback is welcome!

Homer you're a delightful fella, sorry 'bout the salmonella

It shouldn't work, but despite a quite disappointing external make-over and the fact they're alligning themselves with a store famed for its over pricing and food poisoning, I still want to go to a Kwik-E-Mart 7-Eleven and buy a Squishy.

Strange that even after years of falling standards the show is still such an important part of our culture. More importantly it paves the way for my dream of opening a pirate themed pub.

On guard, touche! Oh that is so cliche.
