Arkham Asylum Wins

I can't help thinking that these two art news items go together. Firstly Batman: Arkham Asylum has won best game at the Bafta 2010 awards (title link). Above is an excellent graphic from the game. Secondly photographer Simon Roberts has been selected as the nation's official artist for the forthcoming general election, commissioned by the Speaker's Advisory Committee on Works of Art (CLICK). Groan! Yes, folks, it's time for Asylum UK to dust off its polling booths and choose which of the blinkered fatheads we want to run the asylum for the next few years. My vote goes to Batman. He and Judge Dredd are the only ones who could possibly rid London's streets of crime.
