Joe C is a Dallas based breaks producer, dj and part of the Ground Level family, so when he said he needed a logo, the picto-brain offered to create it. He was after something that reflected his love of Dallas and street art, and was stoked with the result. Keep an eye out for it on future releases, but in the mean time if you fancy putting some beats and breaks in your ears, go [here]. Enjoy!

The picto-brain was commissioned by the awesome Miss Cakehead to create some retro signs for her latest project, this time a lot less gory than her other work but no less extravagant! Miss Cakehead is going to make it snow edible ice cream for two days at Thorpe Park on Friday July 26 and Saturday July 27 - that’s right, you did just read that – edible snow! In the middle of summer! More details can be found [here], if head along, keep you eyes peeled for the signs!

After visiting a self-publishing fair at Chapter in Cardiff recently [details here], the picto-brain was inspired to create a mini-zine for o_S_k_m. The zine is limited to only 100 copies and contains a download code for a 3 track ep. It’s a typographic piece exploring the meaning of the 4 letters in the name… Do they actually stand for anything?
For details of getting one, email email@example.com

A short while ago, the legend that is Neil Gaiman asked for submissions for his A Calendar of Tales project, and the website has now gone live!

Check out the full twelve stories, and the great selection of images too. Awesome!

It was a great opportunity to get sketching again using good old fashioned pen and paper – and no – that’s not Comic Sans!
