I'm going back to my favorite continent next week. This time I'm off to Mali, where you can't get in unless you actually get the jabs, so I'm writing this with 2 aching arms. I usually just cross my fingers!
But now my paperwork is up to date and all is well. Proofing the new book before I fly and then getting it off to the printers (well, HarperCollins do that), so things are moving along. Books take fucking forever to get out there...(Photo is one of mine from Rwanda, but will keep you posted!)

Orders are to be obeyed at all times: Follow your Leader!

Okay, so as some of you may know I was born out of advertising (hence the name - doh!) and so I still keep my hand in from time to time with some ad work. It is a great time to be looking at the whole ad game as it has changed beyond belief since the interweb revolution, and it is mutating into something that is a cross between entertainment, aural pyramid-selling, soft-porn, and a video game.

As a 'Cultural Leader' I am involved in the UK launch of the Honda CR-Z (I'm holding out for my free car) which is all about Cultural Engineers - people who are being creative and yet at the same time are doing some good. I applaud this as usually it's just about fuckers lining their pockets and trying to get out of paying the creatives for their hard work. (You'll get paid on the next job...)

So put all your prejudices about selling out and advertising aside and follow me into a world of pain, sorry, I mean the dream factory. There are some decent peeps in there...

And now for something completely fucking different!!!

Been working on a kinda graphic novel for over 10 years now. Here's a couple of pages to jump start your working week after too much 'chocolate'...
It's totally fucked-up and mental view of the world of advertising and creativity.
