Well day one of the new ‘every day posting’ gig, and I very nearly conk at the first chukka. The internet was down this morning, so I spent an inordinate amount of time trawling round Notting Hill looking for a place to set up camp. Combined with my natural inclination to sack it all in […]


Always an inspiration to see this sort of stuff. Very daft elaborate sculptures made from food featured in today’s Guardian. I love the impermenance of it and also the thought process that drives someone to model a life-size Dita von Teese out of cheese. I’ve only posted a few below, but check out the Guardian […]
