A new show aired on bbc last night by the name of Phoo Action, based on a short comic done by Jamie Hewlett post 'Tankgirl' and pre 'Gorillaz'.
Lookin very slick so far and they got the vibe down to a T (lovin the car, get me one of those!). Lets see if it turns out any better than the in famous 'Tankgirl' movie.
An interesting event set up by Delkographik Studio over at Artoyz in Paris. It's still on until the 1st of March if you're in the neighbourhood.
"We invite you to an exhibition about the Donut, bringing together around 30 artists (Australia, USA, Argentina, England, Israel, Netherlands, France, ...) During two months, we are going to introduce you to illustrators, photographers, video directors and designers. The DONUTS PARTY comes from the real captivation that DELKOGRAPHIK have of the popular clichés from the USA such as, Coke, baseball, cookies and... the DONUT"
Pretty straightforward stuff but loads of cool graphics from the likes of Guillaumit, Jon Burgerman, Tado, Jeremyville, YUCK, Superdeux and many more.
The papertoy pioneer just released a new Spiky Baby Deluxe Series with quite a few impressive artists. Seems like a fun setup! Or as he says it himself (because I won't be able to do it any better):
"We just release a special paper toy collaboration project

In this project, we hope people have real artistic stuff in their hands.
To my great delight, many artists sympathize with this concept
and provided their design."
