my pal, my buddy mark stead is working on a pretty interesting project. he’s redoing a caravan that’s been hoisted to the top of a building for a 5-star mobile hotel as part of the Grand Daddy hotel. sounds a bit mad but here’s the evidence:
You know. Just another inner city caravan hoisting on a Sunday.
Mark and his wife Joe are redoing the caravan, and the theme they have chosen is ‘The Three Bears’. it could be amazing. it could be creepy. it’s probably going to be mostly creepy, judging by the work in progress i’ve seen so far.
Mark at work. Creepy.
Goldilocks outfit. Rather enticing. Makes you glad there are no holes in the bear suit.
Bear suit beginnings.
Bear head endings.
i ate your porridge.
so you can check the whole thing out on Mark’s blog, which he’s set up especially for the project.

Something to do with the Christmas Party theme being 'The Great Depression'. Anyone else spotted zany agency xmas party invites? Anyone out there work at an agency that's cancelled their xmas party to save $$?
see how much effort goes into agency christmas parties? can you imagine the costume pressure involved in this one? what is great depression attire? great gatsby’s last night out? having second thoughts about my amy winehouse idea. scared i’ll be judged for not being conceptual enough. can’t my work speak for myself? can’t they accept me as an artist despite the fact that i have personal flaws like not digging conceptual costumes? not sure. the last KJ xmas party i attended i dressed up as a ‘Security God’ when the theme was ‘gods and godesses’. feel i put in enough effort there to warrant a simple excuse to rock a beehive.
