not for rental

during our trip to london last week we were lucky enough to drop in on the not for rental exhibition, which is being held in aid of the charities macmillian and art against knives downstairs in little white lies hq. it was great to be able to meet the curators, timba smits and flash gordon shaw, and to learn a bit more about the back story and how the exhibition came to be.

an impressive selection of over 200 illustrators and other arty types were asked to create a piece of work based on for their favourite movie, with a secret twist ... all works were to be displayed in an *old skool* vhs case!

today is the last day to view the artwork on show - so you better be quick -

...but! if you head over tomorrow saturday 13th july you might be lucky enough to take home one of the awesome pieces on show to keep forever and ever!
from 10am to 6.30pm all artworks will be up for sale to anyone lucky enough to get there first!
so if you happen to be in london make sure you pop in for a looksee, and maybe spend a few pennies for a very very good cause.

these are a few of my faves ... some photos courtesy of luke (thanks luke!) apologies for the grainy pics, we only had our phones ... oh and i didn't catch all the artist's names, but they're all *ace*
