I love art that makes me smile and this egg is part of Julian Wild’s To Market To Market exhibit, the title being inspired by the nursury rhyme:
This little piggy went to market. This little piggy stayed home. This little piggy had organic, hand-reared roast beef. This little piggy had none. And this little piggy went ‘wee wee wee’ all the way home.
The installation is in Bishops Square, Spitalfields, London, E1.

If you’ve been walking around London you’ve passed by these odd but charming characters. Wenlock and Mandeville are the London 2012 Olympic mascots. Wenlock is made of steel from a steelworks in Bolton and is named after the Shropshire town of Much Wenlock. It is thought that the Wenlock Games, founded around the mid 19th Century acted as a predecessor to the modern Olympic Games.
If you look carefully Wenlock’s eye is a camera,and he has a taxi light on his head with his initial in it.On his wrist are Olympic rings worn as wristbands and the shape of Wenlcock’s head represents the three places on the podium!
There are more than 80 individually decorated statues of Wenlock and Mandeville. I love this one because what girl can resist afternoon tea!

I’m often visiting Hackney Wick as I work with several designers and photographers whose studios are based there. The streets are usually empty and it often feels quite deserted. Today the area was vibrant and full of life. People were spilling out of galleries, and music was everywhere – today was Hackney WickED! This is the fourth year of this open day art festival. There’s also live music, food and of course art! It’s really nice to just be able to wander around and see the artists work in their studios. There’s also a suicidal rabbit and a Council Estate’s Princess and the Pea, created by artist Emma Critch!
