It's been a funny old day, and I thought I'd post this up as it always makes me smile.

I'm sure lots of you have seen it but hey- it's sometimes good to enjoy completely pointless stuff to put things into perspective.

It's all a load of balls.





So...Glastonbury has kicked off!

Every year I say I'm going to get tickets, and then cop out because buying them seems like such a rigmarole.  There is way too much forwards planning involved for my liking!  But I'm saying it again "next year I will go".

This years line-up looks pretty damn awesome...so in dedication a Glastonbury edition throwdown threes (as we haven't had one in a while now!)

On the Jazz World Stage- Mos Def...(he'll have a full band with him, should be epic) ;feature=related[/youtube]

On the John Peel Stage tomorrow- Wild Beasts... ;feature=related[/youtube]

And of course...Gorillaz [/youtube]

Whatever you're doing this weekend- have some fun in the sun :)

Graphic Designers and Illustrators around Bristol have been letting their creativity run wild with Ink Dot’s summer poster show ‘Escape’.  Ink Dot’s ethos is simple, they set a title and a colour pallette and wait to see what poster gems the designers create. The title for the summer project 'Escape' has a colour palette of  light blue, cream, dark blue, red/pink, yellow and green plus black and white.

This Thursday at 7pm we are launching the new exhibition, 'Escape' upstairs  in our gallery so pop along for a drink and to share opinions on the work (the shop will be open for some late night shopping too.) It runs from 17th June until 11th July and features work from more than 30 of Bristol’s most innovative established talent, including pieces by Lorenzo, Peskimo, Dylan Shipley (Sun and Moon Studios, and Bristol's Street Wars team), Ged Palmer, Danny Capozzi, Marcus Walters (New Future Graphics), Ben Steers (Start Gallery), Danny Capozzi as well as featuring work from new up and coming designers.

All Ink Dot prints are for sale as an edition of 50 and are available through www.ink-dot.co.uk. All works are A2 Gieclee posters, printed by Hello Blue from Spike Design. All prints are sold as a limited edition at very affordable prices.

for the month of June the Carnaby Street gallery will be playing host to the work of photographer Jack Symes. now based in london but hailing from chester, his work is based around skateboarding, bike riding, good times and attempting to fill his spare days with as many adventures and interesting things that he could find.

come down and have a look at his results.

Jack studied photographic arts at the university of westminster and is currently looking for work based around his experience.

"Full to the brim with photography and illustration, we hope that it will both inspire and entertain, raise awareness and bring a smile to your face and appeal to both bike-heads and to those who may not yet even have experienced the true joy and freedom that can be found from our two-wheeled friends."
