Working Holiday In London

Landing a creative job in London has always been tough, but it's even harder when:

1) You don't live in the UK
2) Your Working Holiday Visa only lets you work part-time
3) English isn't your first language
4) You live with a horny and verbally abusive landlord

But despite all those things, art director Gwen Yip managed to score a freelance gig at Wieden & Kennedy, London. She kept an illustrated diary of her experience and it's crazy funny. Gwen likes to draw people she meets, including BBH legend John Hegarty.

Working Holiday In London is a good read for ad grunts as well as people looking to break into the business. Start at London 001 and work your way up to London 417.The copy is in Chinese but there are English subtitles.

France bids au revoir to prime-time commercials.

Tonight, France will start airing prime-time programming without any commercials. French TV viewers can now watch their beloved Jerry Lewis movies without interruption.

Advertising is now banned on French public television between 2000 and 0600. It will be phased out by 2011.

It is part of Mr Sarkozy's move to shake up public broadcasting.

He says his plan will improve the quality of programming but critics say it is a power grab that will deprive state broadcasters of funds.

Alex Bogusky has a new book out and it's not about advertising!

If anyone can sell Burger King Whoppers, Domino's Pizzas and a book on dieting, it's Alex Bogusky. He believes that to stay trim all you have to do is eat from a nine inch plate. So if your New Year's resolution is to lose weight, and you're a Crispin Porter fan, stock up on some nine inch plates and throw away all your foot-long hot dogs.

Alex Bogusky doesn't think bigger is better. He believes we should think small—especially if we want to stay trim. The idea that if you eat less, you weigh less is hardly a new concept, but it's one that Alex has packaged into a tidy little eating plan and book, The 9-Inch Diet, that hits stores this week.
