Some great things

Have you seen the Winter Olympics advert on the BBC? Its amazing. It was made by Studio AKA (who also made Lost and Found) and Jon Klassen, who makes beautiful, textural images. How does he make them look like that? I need to pick his brain. Incidentally he also contributed to a lovely book called "We are the Friction" which is full of imaginative stories and illustrations.

Just as I was leaving Canada back in October, promotion of the Winter Olympics had just started and there were soooo many cute cuddly versions of the Olympic mascots, I LOVE them. It took a lot of willpower not to buy one.

Also whilst in Canada I discovered a cool artist called Sam Weber. His posters were up around Toronto and are haunting and surreal.
