Diary: Pringle's feeling rough

In advertising, you have to take the rough with the smooth. Hamish Pringle invariably goes for a bit of rough.

The outgoing IPA boss is a successful artist in his spare time and sandpaper is his unlikely muse. So much so, he created a suit out of it for an exhibition. His work is available to view on the Saatchi Gallery website, www.saatchi-gallery.co.uk. Pringle has a summer exhibition lined up and once he has cast off his IPA shackles, he will be able to spend much more time on his art, which is rather good, we think. His local DIY store will be pleased.
