Just Like Hats.

Having promised myself I would enter Secret 7" this year, I created this little hat design with just hours to go! Torn between Elton's Bennie & The Jets and Laura Marling's The Beast, I surprised myself and went for classic track Harder Than You Think by Public Enemy. My design came out of trying to draw the caps featured in the video each time they appeared, to mixed results. Wanting the sleeve to remain humble and unedited I left the drawings laid out just as they appeared on the page. Hopefully this simple little idea acts as some form of testament to just being yourself and trying until you get something right.

Good luck to everyone who entered and you can vote for you favourite design over on Talenthouse.

And Now Here's Byng With The Weather.

The dawn of March meant it was my turn to pick a theme over on After School Club. Perhaps atypically British in my decision, I decked out the blog with all things weather-related, as we really do seem to have had an awful lot of weather lately. I brought in Michael Fish and his reassuring forecast that there will be NO hurricanes, as well as making a rather strange 'Sunny With a Chance of Cher' background and giving our very own chair a spot waterproofing.

You can read the full story over at my After School Club theme intro post.
Just make sure you wear galoshes.
