Digital Wrting Down Under

Fans of Douglas Adams' BBC series ( which imho merely kidnapped rather than captured a percentage of the humor in the four books in his trilogy. yet developing in that flawed process a pretty slickly comedic distinctive screen style - derived from radio !) and anyone interested in digital writing as a potential career (in which we can fail miserably but make that miserable failure the basis of a phoenix like comeback - well I hope we can, that's my plan anyway.

the relative merits of street cred

I recently saw this image above from Banksy and wondered about the tag currently attached to him, as 'the world's most famous street artist'. - Well that's the trouble with fame, credibility and particularly 'greatness', like Einstein's theory - they are all relative.

Below is some awe inspiring street animation from the Argentinian artist BLU (don't mention the Falklands pls) which to some more than tops Banksy for street cred...... originality and artistic endeavour. It may be like comparing apples and oranges - but hey isn't it tremendous to have such wonderful fruit:
