REASONS TO BE CHEERFUL
What a nice surprise I had on Thursday when I got invited to a talk at the new Bristol Howies shop. I love a lecture so I agreed to go without even asking who the speaker was. The talk turned out to be an informal presentation about the life and work of Barney Bubbles a pioneering graphic designer who acted as a mentor to big names like Neville Brody. He also designed some of the most iconic record sleeves of the New Wave era. I enjoyed the talk very much but the real highlight of the evening was getting to see the amazing shop. I love this illustration.
