" Cherri Wood is a young illustrator based in Minnesota. Her watercolor and ink studies explore the complex subtleties of the human form, roving the depths of feminine distress and despair. Describing her pieces as “a cluster of ink explosions,” she splashes the paper and canvas with diet coke and tea and smudges it with willow charcoal and graphite. Artwork frequently contains quotes and dialogue culled from a plethora of classic plays and short stories, narrating each work in their own special way. "

new music video taken from the new album from Manchester legendary Post-Punk band THE FALL !!! "Your Future Our Clutter" is out on Domino Records

"Your Future Our Clutter is The Fall at their most rampant, most forward moving, bone shaking best. With nine tracks that rock like raw fury, we see The Fall heading into their next decade with the same intensity with which they started."

New campaign by the foundation "Born Free" against homeless animals.

Born Free believes wild animals need their wild habitats; their home, nothing can compare. Habitat loss is caused by deforestation, war, expansion of human populations and agriculture, climate change and much more. Where habitat loss occurs, species (whether large carnivore or amphibian) are forced into ever-decreasing, fragmented areas which in turn decreases prey numbers, water availability and species’ range. Additionally, human-wildlife conflict increases as encroachment occurs resulting in major problems for wildlife and local communities. Ultimately, habitat loss leads to wildlife population decline and extinction. Born Free
