Forget the wall safe. This video lives up to the age-old critique about a hollow plotline!

And here’s a beautifully animated take on Bob Dylan’s recently released children’s book, Forever Young.

Here's a great video putting train graffiti to a very interesting and compelling use - representing all of the lyrics to The Verve's Bittersweet Symphony

And speaking of train graffiti - we are very happy to announce the release of this 25th anniversary edition of one of the greatest books on the subject. And this version is huge! An excellent coffee table book for those interested in the artform.
