Howies Blackboard Van photos by Jamie Stoker

I was sent some photos of the van in the post on the weekend from Alison at Howies.

Here's Alison on the skate tour with the van in the background. I came up with the idea and Alison made it happen. I looked through all the photos and thought I'd post a couple of my favourites by Jamie Stoker. Really nice shots.

I'm going to submit the van in for next years D&AD awards and I'm thinking I might have to use a couple of these shots. Jamie Stoker if your reading this can I have your permission to use these? Thanks. Loving your work.

Happy Halloween

A new edition to my bin bag range. Coming to the shops very soon.

Loving this

About a month ago my girlfriend and I went down to see the ambient media stunt for London inked by Mother which resembled an oversized swimmer with a tatoo on his back advertising the TV programme.

This is Laura Whispering something in his ear.

Here's how they built it.

How much!!!???

BBC covers the Auction

The auction that the Chair is in, is mentioned on the BBC website at the moment.

Of course the fact that BANKSY is selling 10 of his pieces of work in the same auction is the focus of the article. Still it gets people to the auction. You never know BANKSY might put a bid on the chair. To seemore click here.

Auction Preview

Here are some of the photos of the preview auction at Bonhams. It was amazing to see the chair amongst some of the biggest names in art and design. From Ron Arad to Banksy and Damien Hirst, some amazing pieces of art and design were on display. Wednesdays the auction so fingers crossed it does well. Whilst we were there we met some really interesting people. We are debating whether the guy in glasses is a certain stencil artist. Do you know this man?
