It's another UCA Open Day on Saturday 30th November, which means I'll be meeting with prospective students and their parents and 'talking the talk'. The CGAA suites will be open for business between 10am - 3pm (or thereabouts), and I always prefer it when there's a buzz on the lower 4th. It would be great to see you there, but do be prepared to answer any questions from visitors - or be the butt of my rubbish jokes! Hope to see some of you in-situ.
Wow! The CGAA Tombola Of Dreams has just reached £800! Well done all of you! The grand total of £1,000 is in our reach! We just need 10 more people to purchase 2 tickets, or 20 people to purchase 1! Go on - if you haven't bought your ticket(s) yet, go here to the online store. It's your chance to win a brand new iPad and other treats!
Hi everyone, we'll be working with colour again tomorrow, so please bring paints, ink, pastels etc.

I'm showing Drew Goddard's meta-mash-up The Cabin In The Woods as the finale to the year 2 postmodernism film programme this Wednesday @ 2pm in Lecture Theatre 1. I thought some of you might be interested in coming along, as it's not a film I've screened before and it's a lot of fun. You're welcome to attend. Hope to see some of you there.
Hello everyone! Leo here once again with some episodes of Q Pootle 5 for you!
Q Pootle 5 is here!
It's been a while, but I'm happy to say that some of the episodes I've worked on for Q Pootle 5 on the CBeebies channel are finally up on BBC iPlayer. Catch them while you can before they're no longer avaliable!
The Eight-Eyed Thingy from Galaxy 7 Q Pootle 5 is called into action when Groobie sees something lurking in his store cupboard. Is it really an eight-eyed thingy, or just some hungry space mice?
- Some great horror-esque lighting here.
Strange Sounds In The Night Q Pootle 5 and his friends have a camp out to discover what has been keeping Bud-D awake at night.
- Look out for the nightime shots in this one :)
The Cosmic Whipple It is the day of the Cosmic Whipple. But, when Oopsy gets stranded it looks like she is going to miss the most wonderful light show in the whole galaxy.
- Spectacular effects and colours make this one of most visually rich episodes yet!
New episodes are out next this week on the CBeebies channel at 7:35am, or check back on BBC iPlayer for daily new episodes. You can also keep up to date with Q Pootle 5 on the facebook page here.
Oh and this is nice to see after all the hard work :)
Over recent days, you might have seen me stalking the halls with a box of orange ping pong balls and a permanent marker; the ping pong balls correspond to tickets already purchased by CGAA students, staff and alumni, with their names and ticket number written on the ball, before the ball is added to the tombola in readiness for the grand draw on Friday 13th December @ 6pm in the CGAA Baseroom. If you've purchased tickets, but haven't yet written your name and number on a ping-pong ball, don't worry, I know who you are, and I'll find you next week :)
Only 45 tickets remain at the UCA online store, so it's time to purchase yours now. With a grand prize of a brand new Apple iPad Wi-Fi 64 GB, the CGAA Tombola Of Dreams is your chance to get your hands on some great stuff - and help crowd-fund our graduates' exhibition stand at New Designers 2014.
If everyone purchased their 2 x £10 tickets, we'd meet this term's fund-raising target of £1,000! So, "Roll up! Roll up!"
I have now extended the deadline for purchasing your tickets: revised deadline is Monday 2nd December.
This animation would have produced great inspiration towards my Major project whilst at university. It's an intro to a tamagotchi-like app. The thought into the history of the 'Fugu' really helps sell this.

While exploring the realms of hyperreality within my postmodernism research, I came across an interesting article showcasing a selection of hyperrealistic paintings from artists around the globe, discussing their techniques. The attention to detail and realism within to their work provoke a self induced argument that make you question whether or not they are photographs or paintings. There are plenty of examples out there, these are a just a select few, take a look!
