We’ve seen virtually innumerable variations on the “pop-up” theme over the years, but recently we came across one we hadn’t seen before. Enter the Pop Up Agency, a group of six creative students who take residency at clients’ sites for 48 hours, deliver a concept or strategy, and then move on to their next destination. READ MORE…
Following on from my previous post, I also did the TV programme’s cover.
It was more than a little daunting drawing Crumb as his self portraits are such impressive things in the first place.
Here are the festival details, from my previous post:
I did this illustration for All Tomorrow’s Parties Festival, curated by TV on the Radio, this weekend. A music festival that invites a different band each time to select the other artists that perform. More information here: http://www.atpfestival.com/
There are TVs in all the chalets and the festival+band pick what you watch.
I’m going to be doing some comics/illustration related thing at the next festival in June - http://www.atpfestival.com/events/deerhunter.php
If you’re going let me know and we can arrange to become drunken together.
A great premise for a conference too. Pick a conference chair who picks all the speakers. (That’s what I did for the Social Business Edge conference in 2010.)
App: The First Second Screen Film
Second screen comes to the movies with an app-enabled film, appropiately named APP. The film is about a young psychology student Anna Rijnders who, after a dramatic accident in which her younger brother has become partially paralyzed, goes completely into her own virtual world.
Before going to see the film, moviegoers are asked to download a free app (available for Android and iPhone) to enhance the plot. Moviegoers are advised to leave their devices on their laps during the film. When additional content is available on the second screen, audience members are notified by their vibrating phones.

As a poet I hold the most archaic values on earth … the fertility of the soil, the magic of animals, the power-vision in solitude, the terrifying initiation and rebirth, the love and ecstasy of the dance, the common work of the tribe. I try to hold both history and the wilderness in mind, that my poems may approach the true measure of things and stand against the unbalance and ignorance of our times.
