Phooaction
Jamie (Gorillaz) Hewlett’s strip Get The Freebles which ran in The Face, has been turned into a British TV show called PHOO ACTION. It stars Carl Weathers, Jaime Winstone and Eddie Shin.

Creative Director Jamie Hewlett says: “I think it’s the most weird and radical thing that the BBC have taken on since the Young Ones first aired in the early Eighties.

“The script, the cast, the crew, the costumes and the look are all fantastic and the BBC have let the programme stay true to the original idea in every way.

  1. Jamie, like Rob Schrab, are such gifted people in many media, I just wish they would make more comic books. At least Rob is fiinishing up Scud for us. :)

  2. Don’t forget the writing talents of Mat Wakeham either. He was instrumental in the early days of Gorillaz and also wrote and co-directed the Charts Of Darkness documentary.

  3. Mat Wakeham was also one of the chief contributers to Deadline magazine in the 90s, creating strips such as Mr Wonky and writing Planet Swerve, alongside Glyn Dillon and Alan Martin (Tank Girl)

  8. Do you think email marketing is dying? Think twice.
    According to Forrester Research, email marketing investments will grow from $1.2 billion in 2009 to $2 billion in 2014.
    The Direct Marketing Association (DMA) reports that the ROI from email is greater than $43 for every dollar spent.
    Smartphone owners are significantly more likely to increase email usage than non-Smartphone users. (And Smartphone ownership continues to rise.)
