Slides or Heels?

An old illustration here from my application (circa 1985) to study for a doctorate at Oxford University. My thesis was to have been provisionally titled, 'From Playground to Pudenda: The Sexual Politics of Play Equipment from 1919 to the Present', but was rejected by the university admissions committee on the grounds that the theme had already been exhaustively covered by the likes of Desmond Morris, Naomi Wolf, et al. That was, regrettably, the end of my academic career.

Clothes I Wear

Infographics are all the rage these days, and I feel they could really help in clarifying many of my sartorial conundrums. Inspired by the work of illustrator and graphic journalist Wendy MacNaughton, the above is my first attempt at information design. 
Note that 'sexy clothes' are on a different planet altogether.

Autumnal Hair

As the year begins to fade, the falling leaves remind me of why I don't wear black so much these days. We should all have a personal gardener.

Aargh! Special forces have targeted this much photographed Tom Ford dress with the aim both of neutralising dubious taste in evening wear and countering asymmetric proliferation in couture design. 
(With apologies to both Tom Ford and Roy Lichtenstein)
