It’s Star Wars day tomorrow (May 4th) so what better time to release the full details for the Star Wars life drawing classes. I have wanted to do this for ages so seized the day and just went for it!
The idea was born when Chance Collective co-founder Miss Cakehead (for the record I feel like a twat talking about myself in the 3rd person but this is from the press release) approached London Drawing to work together on a concept that will take life drawing on the edge
Being held at The Idea Generation Gallery, London Drawing will be using The Force to as inspiration to create exciting drawings, collages and 3D drawings as performers and dancers battle against the Dark Side. Imagine lazers, Darth Vader sound effects and naked performers as drawing from the human figure is propelled into the 21st Century at the speed of light in a spectacular fusion of theatre and drawing.
The workshop will be using a combination of performers, sound, lighting, props, visual effects, drawing techniques and exciting materials to create an unforgettable visual drawing experience.
Oh and you can also forget about polite unforgiving canapes – Jellymongers Bompas & Parr will be out to play in full battle droid mode.

A sneak preview of some footage shot for the documentary the Chance Collective are currently making about iconic album artist Storm Thorgerson.
Here is a sneaky preview of the Storm installation for the show which opens tomorrow – it looks absolutely fucking amazing and so many iconic images and objects from those images in one place.
Ridiculously good video for 70 Million from French band Hold Your Horses – and a topical post as it starts with The Last Supper!
The (fairly hot) band members playfully reconstruct famous paintings in an off the wall lyrical interpretation all their own. Produced by L’Ogre it’s been a while since a music video made me laugh like this.
The work of artist Will Cotton is so surreal yet cosy yet slightly fetishy I could stare at it all day. There is something so perfect about how naked women sleeping on clouds of candy floss look, and who has not wanted a cake for a hat at some point? Great interview with Will over at The 99 percent.
Kordian Lewandowski has a very unique take on an iconic classical Michelangelo sculpture. His own version shows Mario and the Princess symbolizes the end of an era or “game over”. May I suggest it’s all about swapping the Bible for video games…

Loving the quirky cool art from American artist Dan Gluibizzi – especially the spotted business men in suits, oh and the scary eyes of course.

Back home whoop whoop (but still feel awful). One of the reasons I was in a right shitter about being so ill for the past few days is that I was meant to be interviewing Storm Thorgerson yesterday, for his new show which starts at the Idea Generation Gallery next week. From Led Zeppelin to Pink Floyd, Black Sabbath to Megadeath, Muse to the Mars Volta he unquestionably is of one of the greatest and most iconic album artists of all time. Luckily someone else stepped in to do the interview but it is still v annoying…
You WILL know his work even if you think you don’t…
