Welcome to the modern art museum, where hundreds of illustrators, graffiti taggers and fine artists offer up their services – with only one rule: you must take their work home on your skin.

Pandora: Cameron's swinging plans on spending

David Cameron has been at pains to talk tough of late when it's come to his party's future spending plans.

Student artists pay tribute to inspirational Londoners

An exhibition of work from students studying fine art at Central Saint Martins College opens today in London. Student accommodation company Unite is hosting the exhibition on inspirational Londoners in their new development, Blithehale Court in Bethnal Green.

Paper 'sloppy' over Peaches Geldof article

Tom Sutcliffe: Confused? You will be in this drugs debate...

I'm planning to tinker with my brain chemistry next week. The method I'll be adopting is a relatively recent addition to the long list of mood-altering activities that cascades down the centuries and it isn't, the statistics confirm, entirely without risk.

The 19-year-old's documentary on teen sex is already gathering dust, but what marriage tips, I wonder, might she offer to fellow adolescents? Eloping to Vegas after a weeklong fling is, like, so A/W 2008? Lifelong commitment is, by the way, totally suburban?
