This is a video highlighting the incredible skills of 2 times UK Beatbox Champion... BEARDYMAN. His beatboxing is very impressive (not that I claim to know much about it) but what really makes him stand out is the addition of a mixer and a Korg Kaoss pad. This allows him to create, mix and produce whole songs live using only his mouth.

The video below was shot in one take giving a good overview of of his talent and the variety of sounds he can produce, but if his appearance on Radio 1's Colin Murray show was anything to go by, it's only the tip of the iceberg.

This video proves that he can pull it off live too, performing his version of 'Teardrop' by Massive Attack.

New Work Wednesday

Haven't done one of these for a while but the term "New Work Wednesday" now has a double meaning now that I sign on every other Wednesday: Dalston JobCentre-Plus at 2 o'clock on the dot (or more appropriately, dotted line). Anyway, I will attempt to be as punctual with posting new work as I will have to be with my benefit claims.

The piece below is my response to a brief set by a friend in Brighton to create a logo for an alternative online magazine in the same vei
n as 'Dazed and Confused" and 'Vice'. Being Brighton-based, they came up with the clever name of 'Groyne'. For those of you who didn't take GCSE Geography, groynes are those long structures on beaches that stretch out to sea in order to stop LSD (Long Shore Drift). I'm not going to explain LSD. Wikipedia has a very good explanation I'm sure both for the drug and the geographical term.

Anyway, here's the logo in all its black and white glory.

Voadafone Grand Prix Viral

I haven't posted on here for over a month, mostly due to slackness and also because of dealings with the lovely but occasionally incompetent people at the JobCentre and Hackney Benefits Castle. Yes I am now a sponge of society. This video really is too good to ignore though.

The new Formula One season starts in under two weeks and this is a viral for Vodafone that ties up with that and their sponsorship of the McLaren team. Enjoy...
