Here’s the latest from our London based editor, Justine Aw.
Today I popped by the launch event of an exciting new project, Assemble and Join a community micro-manufacturing workshop on Lower Marsh in the heart of London. I heard about the project from Chris Jarratt (who you may remember from his amazing slingshots), one of the founders of the project alongside Tom Tobia and GD/hta who are working in collaboration with Lambeth Council.
I love the idea of community design and manufacturing and bringing making to the people! Housed in a former cafe, A&J is a manufacturing centre community hub, a place for everyone from schoolchildren to market traders to research, design and build together and create structures to make this gem of an independent high street even more unique. Take a look inside on the next page…
On fun discoveries over at Designercon today - there are some fun cards from The Birds & The Beasts. I love this Telekinesis Congrats card - and the adorable die cut I’m Sorry card on the next page. Apparently - “The Birds and the Beasts is a collaborative effort between illustrator/designer/toy collector Christopher Lee and writer /impulse baker/blog junkie Kristine Songco. When we’re not busy making cartoons (Kristine), drawing monsters (Chris), playing with our dog (both), or cleaning up Kristine’s messes (Chris [duh]), we make cards for all you lovely people!” Take a peek at my favorites on the next page!
Project #GoVOTE is now underway! Artists all over are creating pieces to share and motivate people everywhere to vote! Hundreds of artists are tweeting and adding original works to tumblr and pinterest with the hashtag #GoVote. A repository of works has been created at govotenov6.tumblr.com and on facebook. Please note that “The #GoVote Campaign is a non-partisan artist driven project that runs through election day.” So - do your part and VOTE and make some art to help encourage others to #GoVOTE too!

Chinese artist, Liu Bolin, made quite the stir in the art/internet world with his “Camouflage” series of photographs where he painted people to be completely disappeared into urban backgrounds… Now, Ford has tapped him to create their latest print ad campaign to “Prove How All-New 2013 Ford Fusion ‘Stands Out’ in Competitive Midsize Car Segment”, as their press release says, “New Fusion makes other cars on the road ‘disappear’.”
Last month, we were invited to join them on the set out in Rancho Cucamonga and see how the disappearing of the cars happens… check it out on the next page! (And a time lapsed video of the few day shoot too!)

Wandering down Abbot Kinney, i was stopped in my tracks by Max Neutra’s bunny mural! Naturally this lead to an instagram pic ~ and then an internet search when i got home… leading me to his website and facebook page… which lead to more pictures of the making of the mural as well as his solo show earlier this year at the Cave Gallery with bunnies galore… and even stand alone wooden bunnies that have been captured posing all over the world!
