When painting He-Man, for example, I wanted his head to look squishy and chewy compared to the rigid plastic of his torso. I wanted to paint the toys as they exist now, with wonky legs, parts missing and noticeable damage. I got a kick out of painting the weathered sticker on the R2-D2 figure and the scratches on Optimus Prime. Video of Joe Simpson paintsOptimus Primeaction figure // TIME LAPSE The whole project has been a greatly nostalgic trip for me – I originally only planned to paint about eight pieces, but fell down a rabbit hole and ended up making 34 paintings in total. It's been really great to hear people's reactions to them, and the memories that are provoked by the toys. I'm excited to finally show them all together for the first time at the London exhibition. Joe Simpson is a figurative painter living and working in London. Best known for his life-like paintings of actors and musicians including Olivia Colman, Brandon Flowers, Paloma Faith and Michael Sheen, Simpson's paintings have been shown at venues such as the National Portrait Gallery, the Royal Albert Hall, Manchester Art Gallery and the House of Commons; joe-simpson.

DON'T just eat healthy; eat organically-grown products. ‘Organic’ not only means the food is chemical-free, but also that farming is done in a more sustainable manner that is not only good for the ­environment but also good for you. One of the most popular brands of organic foods in the market is Country Farm Organics, which can be found in all major ­supermarket and retail outlets. The company, which first started its operations back in 1998, provides everything from organic grains, seeds and flour, to organic beverages like coffee and tea. “Back then, the market was small because not many ­people understood what organic was,” says Albert Chew, the ­general ­manager of Country Farm ­Organics, during an interview at his office in Shah Alam. “At that time, organic food was considered food for the sick. If you had cancer, the doctor would advise you to eat organic food,” Chew recalls.

Philip Hobbs’s runner remains an outsider for the Neptune Novice Hurdle and the Albert Bartlett at Cheltenham but is odds-on today Jerrysback (3.00), who holds entries in both the Neptune Novice Hurdle and the Albert Bartlett, is the most interesting runner on Tuesday’s cards with next month’s Cheltenham Festival in mind, and while he is currently trading at around 8-15, he faces a decent opponent in Eaton Hill in the novice hurdle at Wetherby. Philip Hobbs’s runner had little to beat on his debut over timber at Plumpton last month, but could hardly have won any more easily as he finished four-and-a-half lengths to the good and still on a tight rein. For the moment, he remains an outsider for Cheltenham, quoted at 33-1 for the Neptune, and though he will need to win well again on Tuesday to justify a place in a Grade One next month, it will be disappointing if he is not up to the task.

I've never been one for existentialism (except the kind on prom night), but when I stumbled across myself in a 2013 thriller novel, a lot of hard questions popped into my head. Am I a real person? Is this real life? Am I just a figment of author John Gilstrap's imagination? I'm not really sure anymore. (Can you guess I just finished binge-watching Westworld ?) It all began when I was writing an email to a company whose products I was hoping to review. I wanted to get a free sample of some of their goods (since that's the one truly great perk of writing for a living). To do that, of course, it's best to prove to the company that you do, in fact, write for a living. So I was googling some of my past , wonderful reviews when I came across something strange: me. Not, like, normal ol' strange me, though. As I scanned through the results for my name on Google's book search function, there I was in the caption of a picture with two guys named Peter Crenshaw and Albert Banks at the Bombay Bicycle Club in Alexandria, Virginia.

GEORGE TOWN: Penang Gerakan is gearing up for the coming elections with the appointment of constituency coordinators to state and parliamentary seats. State chairman Teng Chang Yeow (pix) said coordinators have been appointed to 13 state seats and four parliament seats. He however cautioned that these coordinators may not be fielded as candidates if their performance was poor. "They are not automatically candidates for the election, they can be changed based on their performance," he said at a media night on Monday hosted by the party. Even with the appointments, the party still has three areas - Tanjong, Bukit Tengah and Kebun Bunga - without coordinators. Also, notable absentees from the coordinator list is state vice chairman Oh Tong Keong, state Youth acting chief Jason Loo and Special Strategic Programme bureau chief Albert Tan. Teng himself was not appointed as a coordinator to any seat but was coy about the matter when asked.
