Tues 20th Jan: Mission Impossible

My studio mate Andy Macgregor spent a few days collecting colourful objects to comprise the following colour wheel advert for a new Guardian career campaign. I had to forcibly restrain myself from peaking into the shopping bags to check our the goodies that kept arriving with teasing snippets poking out the top. I am nosy by nature and colour obsessed so the combination was too much to handle. So thank God I can finally see the fruits of his labours in this picture that is produced by 100% prop styling with no post production other than minor colour manipulation. How on earth did he arrange it in such detail without knocking bits over. Did he hang over the floor via suspension cable in a Tom Cruise style or glue each piece to an upright? Im not sure but the centre-fold broadsheet advert has gone straight up on the studio wall to join our collection of cosmic curios.

Awesome. Just awesome. The experience of organising all those little fiddly bastards must have been enough to drive the poor fellow mad.
