hellohead was an exhibition held at Cargo London for one night only. 60 top illustrators and designers were randomly paired up to create portraits of each other, and as you can see the results were amazing!
The work was all put on show for the night and a silent auction was held in aid of the National Autistic Society. It looks like it was a great success as they raised over £2,000 for the charity.
The day after the show Zeena Shah and Bread Collective hosted a screen printing and mask-making workshop for children with Autism and Asperger Syndrome. I love seeing art used for such positive means, and there's some great photos of the workshop on Bread Collective's website.
It's not often you can slip someone a single dollar bill and get something awesome in return. That $1 tip might get you a casual nod from the cute bartender. Or maybe an ice-cream cone on your way home from work?
Or... how about this. You give a one-dollar note to 100 New York artists and see what they do with it. That's what the gents behind the "One Hundred Dollars" exhibition did. And don't get me wrong, I love an ice-cream cone as much as the next kid, but this currency art is a little more special for a dollar, don't you think?

Most of the DA crew reside in sunny Miami and probably don't even own a knitted sweater. Me, I call Melbourne home, and right now we're smack dab in the middle of winter. So turn on the air-con my Miami friends, this is a celebration of getting snuggled-up!
