My friend Terry and I went to an exhibition celebrating ten decades of Edinburgh Art College at the City Art Centre in Edinburgh on Wednesday. The show features works from some of the colleges best known alumni including Bellany, Byrne, Inness, Blackadder and Peploe to name but a few.
But it this piece of haunting animation (actually it’s really puppetry) by a young American/Italian, Josef Feltus and his brother that stole the show for me.
The Simpsons it aint but stick with it. It is beautiful and won the Jim Poole award, amongst many others, last year.
This is one of four virals that we’ve been working on for a New Zealand IT recruitment company at 60 Watt. Just goes to show that the Scottish border is no object to doing good work. Produced by MTP, animation by Colin Thomson and v/o by Rodney Bewes.

I am grateful to Mike Coulter for bringing this very interesting article to my attention. It argues the case eloquently that email is for us oldies and office workers.
Can you believe it is looking “old fashioned”?
It’s cold. It’s grim up North and the Crispy Thai belly of Pork was not as good as Tony suggested. But I’ve had a good day pounding the streets of Manchester.
You could run demonstration ads that were a little more…daring.
Once again, with 60 Watt, I’ve been doing some nice work for a new client, Edinburgh Carpet and Flooring Warehouse, and Floors 4 U (Which we are about to rebrand as Top Floor).
We came up with a new identity for the Carpet Warehouse and this will be rolled out into his two other brands, the aforementioned Top Floor and his professional services division, Elite Flooring Services.
We made six radio ads Edinburgh Carpet and Flooring Warehouse for him featuring monologues, rants really, by Leslie Phillips (he of “Ding Dong” fame in the Carry on films).
And this is the initial press ad featuring the new logo.
The Floors 4 U ads are fun, playing on the origins of the store as a trade counter.
With 60 Watt I’ve been developing a recruitment advertising campaign for The Scotsman Publications’ Telesales and Field sales people. It’s a big campaign with a whole load of executions, the first two of which are these.
They ran last week.
