Troop troop, Clone Trooper!

Clone Trooper sketch and lettering by equin-co™

 

Fellow Star-Wars lovers! This post goes to you, as I recently got an order to design a Star-Wars themed t-shirt. I was requested that the design should reflect Star wars theme, but be cute and lovable, as well.

This goes!

From sketch to work- “Clone Troop trooper” designed and hand-painted silver on navy cotton shirt by equin-co designs™

 

And this is the final product!

What about you, guys? I love Star Wars and everything about it, maybe because it symbolizes a fantasy fiction world in my head and doing things you are not able to, here on earth!

I was way too young when the series came up, but thanks to technology, you can look up and download episodes, dvd’s, etc..

I liked how it turned out, and hope you enjoy it as well !

Adore and Endure Each Other.

Hello everyone!

I, once again, would like to start the week with positive and enduring thoughts! Hug around, folks :)))

This last weekend, I had a friend coming over, who is quite the twitter phenomenon “celebrity” and has the ultimate publicity potential! Hah, not that, but I really wanted to give a gift to her, also because she had been following my posts and stating she wanted one, so I made it real!

The thing was, I couldn’t ask her what she wanted, like “Hey, any cool quotes in your mind for me to put on a t-shirt?” That would have ruined the surprise, so I browsed through her albums and tried to catch something that she might like. I saw this photo of  a quote on a wall in London, in a recent trip she had been, so I went with this!

I liked how it turned out, did you?

I wanted to make her more than one, so that she could “publicize” easier (!) but I had limited time, as I had other orders of clients lined up!

The thing about creative/crafty work is you want to give gifts to your friends and family, but the leisure joy of it vanishes when you actually make a living out of it and try to meet the deadlines, *while* being innovative and creative.

I steal time from my work, blur the line between work & play, and prepare some form of art – may it be cupcake decorations, home solutions or jewelry design- just for the sake of it, so that I don’t get carried away in the dull routine of work.

Oh, the deadlines I have to meet?

The clients are happily wearing their equin-co’s as I type. 😉

More posts on that later,

Cheers!

Change is Important!

Hello folks !!

Today’s inspirational quote is, “change your thoughts and your world will change.”

Lots of people are unaware of this simple fact, but it is so effective, knowing we stumble ourselves into the situations we currently hate, as a result of a once very needed occasion.

This “mantra” or philosophy if you will, like any other perfected habits, requires practice. Repetition and decisiveness are the key to permanent results.

I hope this inspires you to begin your own process of whatever-you-like !!

Cheers. xx

Beauties From Istanbul Madonna Concert!

Woooo, a post worthy to start the week! A post you’ve all been waiting for…

Tugce being all flirty and says with madonna

Here goes footage from Madonna’s tour, stop: Istanbul. My collage buddy had me design her and her fellow concert-mates’ t-shirts for the show, ya know, t-shirts are a HUGE part of any concert!

Nuray and Tugce showin’ off equin-co T-shirts on the way

I’m pleased of the feedback, too, since they’ve so kindly uploaded the photos, tons of people have been ordering song lyric concept t-shirts!

Some of the comments on Tugce’s page also showed the intrigue from participants, asking where’d they got them!

Sweet!

Thanks, ladies, for voluntarily modeling for me, while having the most awesome time!

Enjoy some of the pics;

Ladieeees
Ray of Light is easy to handle for Nuray

Cr(owl)ded ! More owls, more fun!

It’s officially summer, everybody! At least here, where I live in Izmir 🙂
It has been a hectic road of thunders and rains not long ago, but from couple of days on, the sun is shining!

The good weather effected my creativity, as well, I think! I was inclined to make anything joyous and fun. I got orders on the “owlsome buddies” but I kindly asked them If I could do a slightly different version that has been stuck in my head. Both my clients said yes, I mean, when someone says ” Hey, I have more elaborate design with more figures in it, ” you say “Go ahead!”

Anyhow, here are the final products! :

Cr”ow”lded lettering and owl figures in multicolor on white cotton t-shirt
“O rly” owl couple figure painted in multi color and glitter on red cotton t-shirt

 

Cr”owl”ded lettering and owl figures painted in silver metallic, red, pink and yellow on forest green cotton t-shirt
Owlsome buddies – lettering and owl figures in black, green and lilac on grey cotton mix t-shirt

 

How do you like them? Any feedback is very much appreciated.:)

and remember, they can be yours, too!

This authentic original equin-co owl designs are here to make your day better 🙂

Cheers and happy weeks 🙂

25th Birthday… And More!

25 and awesome writing in blue, red and glitter, smiley face in yellow painted on white cotton shirt.

 

Ok, as I promised (better late than ever! ) I am posting more birthday photos. I mean, regarding design.. This one, I got so many orders, from fellow year-mates (if it is such a word :)) I was exhausted making 25-year-old t-shirts!

I basically wore this one three days in a row. All weekend, to all kind of family, friend, work celebrations:)

But, I didn’t make it ALL about me. (hard to believe, huh?)

I made these to my cousins to wear all together. Thanks to their unlimited contributions to my line of clients and their inner glow, they gave me enormous energy!

In another news, you can go to my instagram page, to purchase my artwork now!

HERE:

I patiently waited for my gallery to open, apparently there has been people wait listed, because it ain’t that easy to get it. 🙂

Additionally, my two cents about the ongoing arguments whether the instagram photographer is a “real photographer” : I, personally think it really is questionable if  *everyone* on instagram is an artist. Don’t think so. But, and that’s a big BUT, there are some very very talented people on there, as well.

I am a little out of the subject to talk, because I don’t shoot landscape, or portrait or anything photograph-artistic worthy, I shoot my drawings, or collaborations (i.e. pretzel owls) so that kinda makes sense in a pop art form.

Although I agree with people  that stand against *everyone* who has a smart phone to act like an artist and sell their crappy shoots, I support this kind of attempts, because you never know, maybe everyone really IS an artist! I mean, who and what defines Art, anymore?

 

I talked too much today:)

Have a lovely week and hope everyone has celebrations, birthdays, etc to have fun on this week!

Cheers,

xx
