+ As I am off to Cornwall tomorrow. These vintage surf photos have really got me in the mood to take on some waves

+ This girls just keeps giving. Vegetarian ventures is back with peanut butter pupsicles. That’s right, Popsicles for your pooch!

+ August 19th is on the horizon so get ready with your chalk to fill the streets with drawings.

+ A kickstarted project with involvement of Pussy Riot and Yoko Ono. School of Doodle has me itching to sign up. “The school the campaign imagines is an all-girls online art wonderland, where teenagers find inspiration through how-to videos by creative luminaries like Alice Waters, Kim Gordon, Marina Abramovic and Salman Rushdie. The videos will come with Doodle Challenges, prompting girls to create their own work and share it online.”

+ This weeks design work for Volt Café is editorial Inertia Creeps.

+ I’ve been enjoying listening to new podcast Invisible Office Hours while washing the dishes e.c.t. I think you will enjoy too!

+ This week has been all a bit melancholic with the death of Robin Williams. A man who brought such great joy to this world, exuding a childlike energy that taught us all to see the world in a way that anything could and can happen. I was hugely inspired by his films growing up, as many were. This week I have been reading many articles in tribute. Russell Brand asks “Is it melancholy to think that a world that Robin Williams can’t live in must be broken?”. I am watching Inside the actors studio with Robin and viewing the work of illustrators paying tribute.
