Pintachan is the name of the artist responsible for the winningly cute picture, above. It was bought from Brighton's most aesthetically pleasing toy shop Rocket Science. If I'd had unlimited funds and hadn't been heading to London for the Chickfactor* shows I would've bought a few more examples of Pintachan's wonderful art. On gloomy days such as this, "Love Boat" is a reminder of a brighter, softer world. A simple pleasure. If you see me wearing a flower badge or one with an endearingly vacant little spaceman, they're Pintachan, too.
* - Have you got your new issue yet? It comes highly recommended! Glaswegians can snag a copy from Monorail Music. Where else?!
