Sticky Vinyl

 I had the opportunity to help transform an office interior as part of the BLANKS Shoreditch Project.
Sometimes the best ideas are the simple ones and don't require extravagant spending!
And so this brings us to Vinyl - lots and lots of sticky Vinyl.
With designer Kim Thome's creative concept + vinyl + some fabulous help from his assistants (ahem including me), the results were pretty damn good.

Voting time.

Today I voted for the Iraqi Elections.
It's my second time now (it happens every 4 years). 
To make sure you can't vote twice, you've gotta dip your finger in purple ink.
Only thing is that after about 20 minutes your finger goes from being a delightful purple colour to a horrible rotten banana brown.
Good thing it's easy to scrub off..oh wait...no..no it's not at all.

House Of Mask Launch Party

So, as mentioned in the previous post, I spent a few days making many MANY masks, but it paid off because it meant I could attend the event.

 It all started off by walking through a foggy corridor, lined with filing cabinets and greeted by rather strange men dressed in white asking us to make a confession to gain entry.
On these filing cabinets were cheque books in which we had to write down our confessions.
There I was thinking I would just have to dump it into some sort of box, but no..nope I was wrong.
You see, I didn't realise that one by one we would have to enter through the glass door and meet these..erm charming? ladies. Greeting me in sync in grumpy monotonous tone, I handed over my confession, only for it to be abruptly snatched out of my hands. Embarrassingly, the blonde on the right quickly read it and snidely showed it to her partner. With raised eyebrows and feeling uncomfortably judged, they looked up disapprovingly and allowed me entry. Phew.
After opening a cabinet door that led me through a corridor that seemed to get smaller and smaller, I reached a small door. As I crouched through to enter, I was instantly handed a free beer. Nice.
Collecting our key.
People had the chance decorate their masks.
Live graffiti.
Overall a very interesting and fun night.

The Mask.

Creative Agency Ralph had an exciting event coming up and needed some help.
The idea was to create an event based on confessions and a sense of anonymity (hence the masks).
Everyone attending would have a mask on - nameless and blending in.
And so began the lengthy process of cutting and sanding hundreds (and I really mean hundreds) of masks. It was nice to be behind the scenes, watching everyone frantically working together as a team to meet the tight deadline. 
With cramped hands, dusty lungs and a few cheeky biscuits later - we did it!

The Book Club

Such a nice cafe designed by Shai Akram.
From it's plant pot walls, hat ceiling installation to an area dedicated to ping pong.
 It's a pretty nice place to hang out.

London graffiti

Who doesn't love a bit of cheeky street art eh?
You don't even really need to be on the 'look out' for graffiti in East London, it's just kinda everywhere.
Oh London you spoil us.

Ants

Doesn't watching loads of little insects all scuttle together make you shiver a little? 
Even though the ones in Saatchi were massive, it still kinda gave me that feeling.
