How are you? Apologies for the terrible title of this blog but it’s a Sunday, my brain isn’t totally functioning and it’s all that I’ve got. Glad that’s out of the way. On with the art! On the weekend of March 31st/April1st we invited Drew Millward to paint our office the colour of awesome. He kindly obliged and the outcome is incredibly awesome! You can watch the video here and see some amazing photos here. Please check out Drew’s website as he is incredibly talented. Video wise, we must also thank Blacklisters for the heavy tune and Fresh Cut for the fresh cut. Glad I spelt that last link correctly. If you’re tweeting about it, then please use #thegreatwallofdrew tag.
