Dog sushi anyone?

Pass the soya sauce

Shocked by the picture?

Don’t be…it’s not real. It comes from the creative talents of a man called Adjuh; and he does for Photoshop what Ranulph Fiennes does for strolling in the park.

A number of years ago when I was still in radio, with Adjuh’s permission I reposted a number of pieces of his work as interactive elements on my BIG Breakfast Blog. I used them to encourage listeners and viewers to provide commentary and opinion. With each post I included a link to his website. My blog went on to win 3 SA Blog Awards – the most of any blog – and Adjuh received thousands of new fans.

What I like about his work is that it often – through shock – encourages debate and revision of opinion. And that’s what makes it true art.
