Torch project

Just handed in a project at college to design a torch. The first project that I have done where I have gone through the entire design process from concept generation through to a final prototype. I really enjoyed it and it is hugely rewarding to have a final model that looks exactly like how I pictured it in my head.

This video is starting to cause a big stir online. I found it incredibly watchable and it has one of the key qualities of a viral - it is shocking. I forwarded it to a friend and am sharing it here. Why? Because I want YOU to see it. What's in it for me. A little bit of kudoss I guess because in theory I found it before you did and in theory you'll come back to this blog just in case I've found something you haven't seen yet. Let's face it, the web is about SELF PROMOTION. It not about communities, or socialising. Everyone here is here is here for themselves, from brands to individuals are here to some extent becuase of self promotion. I write this blog to self promote, I go on Facebook to tell my friends what I am up to (self promote.) I read other blogs to leanr stuff that I can use to make myself more interesting. There it is then. Think about why you're online right now.

Anyhow, that was quite a rant. And I expect it has something to do with watching this video. It makes you want to go smash stuff up. I give it 48 hours before the Daily Mail write about it. It's the GTA of youtube, and they described that as "mind poison".

Back to college

Back at college for the final term of the first year - things are super busy at the moment. Working on a really interesting project involving material exploration - we've developing new materials by combining others.

Facebook T shirt stall

I had a great opportunity to take part in the University of the Arts Summer Fayre at The Truman Brewery and set up shop with Facebook T shirts. What I'm really enjoying this year is getting my work out there in front of the public. I was also selling my book of cartoons which proved popular - one girl even asked me to sign hers!
