Marcus Jackson is set to officially depart the regional chief creative officer gig of Batey at the end of April and is considering offers in the US and the UK. Jackson, who made his rep with The Ball Partnership and of course Omon in the late 80s and early 90s, has been back in Australia since last December (he has effectively been out of Batey since late last year) and would consider staying if the right position was available. He had been in the Batey gig for two years in which time, says Jackson, the network has improved its creative profile and shed many of its unprofitable offices, now concentrating on Singapore, Bangkok, Shanghai and Taiwan.

Just a quickie.

Tetsuya of Sydney just got to number four of Restaurant magazine's 'top 50 restaurants in the World.'

Much rather talk about that than bloody Tooheys.

Tetsuya was 4th last year, this year 5th. No Melbourne restaurants in the top 50 this year.

I realise he's irrelevant to the Australian ad industry, but this has ...exactly what... to do with Maaarcuus Jaaarckssonn?

A bit of trivia: In his earlier incarnation as Siiiiimon Reynold's art director Maaaaaarcus (whose surname in those days was Barnett) donned one of the grim reaper costumes to appear in the famous AIDS commercial.

All your anonymous scathing bitchy bitchy comments ...I bet you'd be the first to crawl up his arse if you had the chance. All you ad people are a nasty nasty bunch of jealous insecure wankers.
