John Lewis Christmas ad

I absolutely love the John Lewis ad but a I am gobsmacked by how much work actually went into it. I though it was all just CGI. But Creative Review have done an article all about behind the sceans and it truly is amazing. The article is a must read!

Autumn photographs

Just walking home and spotter two squirrels. You know its definitely Autumn when you see them collecting nuts.


For professional practice we have been given a brief called, the art of being odd. it is all about the little odd things tha make up me, things that make me stand out from the crowd. Un fortunately there are quite a lot. So the first thing or do is make a list.
Things that are odd about me:
I read a lot, and I mean a lot. When I have the time I can read about 3 books a day.
I wear a lot of blue. 70% of my wardrobe is blue.
I eat cake when I'm stressed. But don't most people?
I can't stand yogurt with bits in.
I was told by an educational psychologist that I have "a wonky shelf." In my brain.
I loovvve bunting.
And one more, I hate wearing shoes.

So after looking at this list I decided to focuse on that amount of books that I own. And that when you have a lot it can be quite difficult to accommodate them all.

I end up finding them in some quite strange places. The most popular being under the bed.
I also have quite an extensive collection on my Kindle, around 400. So intrude to come up with a way to incorporate the two.

I then decided to put all these images together in the form of a small book (which probably end up in a strange place within a week).

All these images can be found at
