Giselle potter is a wonderful illustrator whose books we are loving reading at the moment. Cecil the Glacier is on high rotation at our house.
Years ago I used to know her and two strong memories spring to mind. One is of a wonderful puppet show she and her husband created. The other is walking into her disco party dressed to the nines only to realise no one else had dressed up and the "rubber cement" which I had used to stick stars all over my body turned out to be not the natural adhesive I imagines as each star burst into an agonising blister. It was pretty hilarious.

And now for our Art Class tomorrow!! We will be exploring colour theory in a round about way using three different activities which should be fun for even the youngest child, so if you are about come on by I did a trial run today and it all looked pretty smashing.

I can't remember how I found this collection of collections and my French has gone from scratchy to non existent so I can't find out too much about it, but if you want to lose your self in some beautiful graphic design collections covering everything from matchboxes to fonts have a look at Agence Eureka. I especially like the collections of the same images with slight variations.

Roxy Paine makes some great art. He "describes his work as a trajectory of five oscillating wavelengths: Art making machines, Replicants, Fungal Fields, Specimen Cases and Dendroids" I think that pretty much sums it up!
