Jesus, but Offset was brilliant this past weekend.
Loved many, many of the speakers, but my favourites had to be Chip Kidd and Oliver Jeffers. Truly inspiring stuff and no mistake. I was so moved by Jeffers' 'Lost and Found' it's almost disturbing. A friend of mine is convinced that the penguin is my spirit animal and i think she may be right.
Back to Offset, it really felt like we'd got a brand new, utterly worthwhile event to add to the annual art calendar, huge kudos to the organisers. Who knows, may see the micks there next year!
Anyhoo, Appleseed this week. In my delirium last week i watched an awful lot of Anime for some reason(I still don't understand the politics of Ghost in the Shell and don't get me started on the sequel...) One of the movies I enjoyed most was Appleseed, great straightforward action-adventure with gorgeous character/vehicle design by Shirow Masamune.
