Frock n’ Roll Instagram Contest_the Masterpieces

30 Jan

Our Frock n’ Roll instagram contest has come to an end.  But the excitement cannot fade away.  Your entries were beyond creative, which is why we’ll show them all here for the universe (maybe one day…praying gesture) to admire.

So Frock n’ Rollers here they are, all the instagrammers who wrote Frock n’ Roll in their most creative way and made us proud:

I LOVE MR. MEN & LITTLE MISS.  Always have. Always will.

And then December came and Boom! my favourite Paris concept store, colette is being taken over by Roger Hargreaves’ heroes.

And then second Boom!  Links of London is doing an entire Mr Men & Little Miss jewellery and charms collection, targeting the youngsters, but even better cause it’s as cute as can be.  Enjoy the pictures and give in to the child in you.  FYI, 20 days till Christmas!

Smurf Attack

26 Mar

by Dimitria Ioannidou//

This blog is becoming more and more art friendly, no? Its comics turn today, the most literary of the plastic arts, the outcome of the ever closer collusion between the desire to tell stories and the art of drawing. Plus, the comic festival is about to open its doors in Athens, plus Milo Manara will be there (and so are we), plus there is the Comic Strips museum in Brussels that I visited just for you. So especially dedicated to all us children out there…

Concluding in the museum’s own wors: Comic strip is not the result of a discovery. From the oldest known accounts of cave art to the dawn of the 20th century, the various elements of this exhibition confirm the popular adage that “nothing is invented, everything just changes”.

“Revenge Phone Rap” rocks

28 Sep

by Dimitria Ioannidou//

Now this is so much cooler than any kind of revenge you have EVER plotted.  If you feel someone has wronged you, in any way, you need to have a word with Maurice.

You’re probably wondering who’s Maurice. Maurice is the rhyme master. He’s the Revenge Rap Master. In his own words:

“Well my name’s Maurice and I’m here for you, I’ll cheer you up when you’re feeling blue,
you see i got a knack of making raps, I shoot off my mouth instead of peeling caps,
when you got troubles you come to me, I know more words than a spelling bee,
someone done you wrong? You let me know! Tell me about it and send some dough,
then i make a rap and you get revenge, it will be a bigger mystery than STONEHENGE!”

You see?  You’re angry. You call Maurice.  You tell him your tale.  He’ll write a mini rap and then give the perp a ring.  That’s it.  No more texts, calls, voodoo, friend therapy, ok shopping is allowed…

To hear samples and order your vengeance rap, go to www.derekerdman.com.  Haven’t checked if he makes international calls though, sorry…
