SPITTING IMAGE EXHIBITION

A week day off in London and I needed to make the most of the, slightly quieter, city streets. Having been to most of the larger museums lately, The Cartoon Museum takes my interest with it’s promise of a healthy slice of British satirical puppet pie. 

On the back streets behind The British Museum, The Cartoon Museum has a small but fantastic exhibition on the late-night ITV series Spitting Image. Being a child of the 80’s and 90’s I was a little young to watch the series when originally aired, however, with a keen interest in illustration, puppets, entertainment not to mention being bought up listening to The Chicken Song, this exhibition was right up my street.

Spitting Image: From Start to Finish looks at the partnership between artists Peter Fluck and Roger Law, whose talent for three-dimensional caricature formed the bedrock for the complex creation that would become Spitting Image. The collection of satirical sculptures, photos and sketches of politicians and celebrities from the 80’s and 90’s, amongst others, include Paul McCartney, Ronnie Corbett, Kate Moss, Saddam Hussein, Bill Clinton, Rupert Murdoch, Jo Brand and John Paul II, not forgetting the Royal Family, Margaret Thatcher’s cabinet and her political opponents. 

A museum of only three rooms kept me entertained for a good couple of hours - if you can, you should take a look too.

Exhibition ends at the beginning of June.

GLUG AND D&AD JOIN FORCES

This week, rather excitingly, Glug and D&AD put together three very exclusive talk events during the D&AD14 professional judging week at Kensington Olympia in London and all for the very reasonable cost of 1 pence each.

The three events hosted a ‘best of Glug line-up’ - all speakers who had gone down a storm at previous Glug events. The tickets did not only include the talks but also the chance to get a behind-the-scenes peek at D&AD judging.

From the balcony of Kensington Olympia we had a birds-eye view of the world’s greatest advertising and design being judged by the expert juries below.

Highlights for me (personally) include Marshmallow Laser Feast, Moving Brands and Rob Coke from Studio Output. However all speakers were extremely interesting. Please do such an event again Glug!

Take a look at the 2014 D&AD Award Nominations.
