Cat Bowl

Pat was recently bought a cat-shaped cat food bowl. The instructions for its use are in the form of these small illustrative diagrams. An apparently hugely pregnant woman is seen dutifully feeding her fat cat.

It seems that someone was so keen to avoid showing (or drawing) the woman's face that the neck extends right up to the top of the picture. Reminds me of old Tom & Jerry cartoons where you'd only see the legs of the humans. I found this very funny. And brilliant.

The pics are by Alessandra Carlotta Alessi Anghini, it says.

ING Direct TV Ads

The new puppet TV ads for ING Direct are rather brilliant. Love that Beaver.


Enjoying the use of Yorkshire accent too.

Bus Blinds

At the LTM there's a display of bus destination blinds hanging from the ceiling. They're really really long.

Strong biceps on those old bus drivers.

The Serco Prize Exhibition at London Transport Museum

The best 50 entries from the AOI's annual Serco Prize competition are currently exhibited at the London Transport Museum. I went back to show my Dad around a few days after the PV, and took my camera this time.

My entry:

There were some great responses to the 'River Thames' brief. A big favourite for me was Melvyn Evans' Thames People and Tides- brilliantly characterful tiny figures and an exquisite colour palette:

Ace characters in Matt Oxborrow's piece... of whom bore a striking resemblance to my guest to the private view,

Great textures and beautifully observed figures in Holly Stoves' image:

Congrats to the winners. The exhibition is on until the 3rd June, in case you'd like to take a peek. The museum itself has some interesting stuff too, like this chap:

The cat that got stuck in the plastic bag.

A birthday pic for Pat, recalling an occasion when one of her felines got a blue carrier bag caught around his neck and ran around in a panic like a deranged Superman.
