While their artwork might show us whats going on inside their heads, that leaves us wondering, whats going on inside their studio? In this feature, Team Nelly gets an exclusive insight into the minds, studios and snacking habits of our brilliant artists. This week, self-proclaimed wanderlust king and dandy delinquent Ramon Maiden lets us know his top ten of all things weird and wonderful.
