thrilling warm up.

I love dressing up, me. The next time I am going to get to do it will be on 29th October. At the MCM Expo where we shall be launching The Thrill Electric. Come join us! Yes ma’am, we shall be in Victoriana and John Reppion and Leah Moore the lovely authors of the comic (it’s enhanced, you know) will be on a panel and doing a kind of director’s commentary.

Bleeding Cool did a lovely write up today trailing the event and showing off the first exclusive cover art – one of my favourites (although they are all magnificent, and by different very well know comic artists). I think it really is going to live up to expectations: almost a year in production. W00t. Well done to Hat Trick, Littleloud, John and Leah, Emma, and the wonderful Windflower.

App will follow soon after launch too!

So after The End launched in August, the next project out of the blocks that I am immensely proud of, since it was one of my first commissions in the job, is the fantastic start up Inensu‘s Closet Swap. Like Sweatshop, it was conceptualised as a playful way of getting young people thinking about the choices they make in fashion.

Not about ethical fashion, but more about sustainable fashion, the site feeds off your Facebook social graph and lets you swap clothes for points (the more sustainable, the more points you get) with your mates. There are leaderboards too.

The iPhone buddy app which launches soon, lets you snap a wanted item while you are out and about and post it to your FB wall as a fashion SOS. It also tells you all about sustainable designers to look out for in the shops, and tells you where your nearest charity and vintage shops are.

I expect to see some really interesting stories coming out of this, and it’s already been nominated for a Bima Award!

Paulina Bozek, the mastermind behind Singstar, is a creative genius and a pleasure to work with. I shall be eagerly trying to borrow ALL HER CLOTHES too.
