Jump into the cartoon

Tonight is the launch of the very fabulous Tabitha Magazine, produced with lots of love and elbow grease by some friends of mine, Louise and Una of Glamrocks. I’m just finished work, so I’m heading along now, hopefully you’ll be there, and if not you’ll be able to get your hands on a copy soon.

Unrelated, but here’s a strange idea from Jump From Paper – bags that look as if they were drawn. For the most part I’m not keen, but I’ve developed some pretty serious feelings for one particular bag – The Travel Bag.

It has a Mister Men solid look about it – it reminds me of shows like Angela Anaconda that I watched as a kid, and latterly, with enhanced production values, South Park. It has a very simple appeal, if that makes sense – a fundamental shape with precise lines – perhaps playing into the ‘graphics’ trend that’s supposedly all that and a bag of chips.

You could definitely fit a weekend’s necessities into it anyway.
