Jon Burgerman has been working on a neat sticker pack for the PS3 game LittleBigPlanet.Check the video here of how Jon's characters have been/can be used in the game.To explain a little more about the game, In LittleBigPlanet, the player controls a small character called Sackboy (or sometimes Sackgirl or a Sack-person), owing to their material and appearance, which can run and jump and manipulate objects by hanging onto them or by dragging or pushing them.

Set amongst Raphael's cartoons in an almost church like setting. Crazy acoustics, with Chris Price even heard here singing before we got going. We had about 200 people sat/stood watching the main event, impressive considering you had to leave drinks outside.Harry Malt was running his drawing workshop alongside collaborator Chris Bianchi. The best drawings from their workshop were selected at the end of the night and the lucky winners each got a section of the final artwork.Yehrin Tong was invited to create this beautiful cover for the evenings proceedings which was printed large and folded for the...
