The trio

Megan and I were watching some youtube clips yesterday, and watched the animation Charlie the Unicorn. We quickly realised that we act like the characters in the clip. Megan is the white horse, Nadine is the pink and I'm the purple :P

A bit wierd, but really cool! I think an American art student made it..

Short recap of the month (from what i lost in the ex blog)

Its been a busy month.

Working on an Ikea brief for D&AD, its going well, I'm excited. My Swedish genes are eager to
impress, we'll just have to see how that goes :) Having a whip tomorrow with Mr Mike so I'm going to
crack on with some more ideas...

Megan and I (my ex partner) are still working on YCN together. We are doing P&O Ferries and Why let the Drink Decide? . Will put them up when they are finished! :)

Alex Taylor visited the University of Lincoln and taught us Art Directors some very interesting and important things. She gave us her 8 golden rules, which I am really grateful for! One day with her, and she makes me feel as if I've learnt a year's worth of lectures!
She made us redirect some ads, and I won first prize! Nadine, my housemate came second, and Jan third!

Guest speaker Rory Sutherland joined us for a day to talk about advertising! Funny guy, truly an inspirationn!

Online Saatchi&Saatchi has started a competition for a placement during summer and eventually a job if the winner is good. 6000 applied, now there are 250 left. Round three starts next week, and I hope for a challenge!!

Also been writing on my dissertation, which is to be handed in in three weeks. Not much left to do, yet it feels like it'll never finish!

Got my newest technology baby, my Nikon D3000, one of my most valuable investments :)

Next week

Going to see Karmarama next week, very excited about that! Staying from thursday to saturday, so I get to stay with my close friend Stephanie! We're doing a campaign for the creatives at Karmarama to look at, I've got some drawn ideas so I'm waiting impatiently for their critique :)


Youtube babies

Are always a favourite of mine, here are some specials :)


I'm on the google satellite!! Caught talking to my friend outside my parents' house. Really cool that google has done this so that you can scroll across streets. Imagine how it might look like in the future though, if they make it possible to have live footage of everywhere in the world, just like above, available to everyone. They would definitely be making life easy for stalkers.

Sunday movie

Sunday is meant to be the day where you lay in bed all day watching movies and relaxing. For those who dont get the opportunity to be lazy, I'll be posting a short movie clip every sunday for people to enjoy, find boring or strange, happy, get the drill. Hope you've had a good weekend and enjoy the movie :)

Take a break and Dance

If your but is hurting or possibly a bit numb from sitting down too long,
take a break and start to shake with Black Eyed Pea's song 'Electric city'!

Tom is stupid.

Googled my fellow course mates Othick & Palmer. Google does not like Tom.

talented chap that..a..well...a.. is a webcam chat, which connects you to random strangers from all over the world.
People go on there for a laugh, some to do pervy things that other pervs or lonely people go on to look at,
and other people do it because they're lonely or bored.

Here is a guy that plays a little prank on other people on Chatroulette, making his eye look like something..
well a little bit different :)

Marnie Weber

Was checking out some photos for my project when i stumbled across Marnie Weber's website, a sculpture and collage artist. Some of her pictures remind me of Alice in Wonderland, think they're pretty cool.. even though the old woman rabbit looks a bit disturbing.

Check out her website here

Interactive Horror Movie!!

WOW! This is amazing! The movie just proves how interactive everything is becoming.
I would love to go and experience this at the cinema!

Nat is born to blogspot, again.

Hi! I'm Natalie and this is my scrapbook, public diary, inspiration feeder, whatever you want to call it!

I'm a bit of a div, as I accidentally deleted my last blog account. "How do you accidentally delete a blog, dick head?" (Dave Morris's famous swearword) you might wonder.. well, there's no way I'm going to make it sound less stupid, so I'll leave the answer for your imagination.

So now my blog URL contains my surname as well. Thought that if I have to start over from the beginning, I might as well name my site something that people won't be able to pronounce or remember.

I'm going to try and put in all the stuff from my last blog, though memory like a goldfish I'll probably miss out on a lot of them. But like goldfish in their bowls, they always swim in circles and hopefully I'll bump into them again.

Anyway! I hope you all enjoy the blog, and feel free to drop a "Hello" or a bit of critique or even a random anything!

-N- the dick head
