Hubbub’s Brilliant Designs are Reducing London’s Street Litter

Hubbub1

Environmental charity Hubbub (in collaboration with Common Works) has figured out a way to trick litterers into being better human beings! Capitalizing on Londoners’ love of sports and strong opinions, smokers can now use their cigarette butts to make their voices heard on various burning questions, like whether Cristiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi is the best in the world. Their Neat Streets initiative has many brilliant campaigns, one of which turns chewing gum into paint-by-numbers sorta drawings! See more below.

“Last Name London” by Theophilus London. Directed by my friend Harrison (Boyce and Brown). I was sad to see him leave Vancouver for New York last year, but it’s exciting to see a talented friend breaking through.

Artist Dominic Wilcox Creates Art Exhibition Specifically For Dogs

Wilcox1

London-based artist and designer Dominic Wilcox (if you don’t know who he is you have to watch this) has come up with the ultimate contemporary art exhibition for dogs as part of an initiative to encourage people to play more with their pets.

Working in consultation with veterinary experts, installations include an open car window simulator and a 10 ft ball pit made to look like a dog bowl filled with dog food. Paintings by artists Claire Mallison, Joanne Hummel-Newell, Robert Nicol and Michelle Thompson hang low to the ground and specifically draw on colours within dogs’ visual spectrum.

Such a great idea! Check out more images and video of the exhibit below, including some of Wilcox’s preliminary sketches!
