Cookies, anyone?

Cookie Monster with “Cookies” caption hand painted in brown and pink on light yellow cotton t-shirt. Zip detail.

 

HELLO WORLD!

This just in; Ekin creates this ‘order’ in the lack of a plain t-shirt !

Luckily it turned out great and the client loved it ๐Ÿ™‚ The pocket detail was a minor one, and I thought I could still pull of a little line *and* have a great design in the front.

But I didn’t want any fuss at any point of the shirt, so I thought “why not include it in the design?” The zip acted like a cute mouth to the monster and It made the client want to throw some actual cookies in! At least that’s what She said !!

Enjoy, everyone!!

Cr(owl)ded ! More owls, more fun!

It’s officially summer, everybody! At least here, where I live in Izmir ๐Ÿ™‚
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 ๐Ÿ™‚

Cheers and happy weeks ๐Ÿ™‚

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!

I patiently waited for my gallery to open, apparently there has been people wait listed, because it ain’t that easy to get it. ๐Ÿ™‚

Additionally, my two cents about the ongoing arguments whether the instagram photographer is a “real photographer” : I, personally think it really is questionable if ย *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 ย 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

 

Heaven is a place on Earth

“Heaven is a place on earth” writing in blue glitter and silver, on black cotton mix t-shirt

Whenever I get an order, I brainstorm by listening to music. Normally I enjoy classical concertos and modern covers of them, but I find it helpful listening to mainstream radio for a fresh change, as well. Don’t get me wrong, I am not always “Ooh, can’t ย do without my Bach!” I just like the feeling it gives me.

Regarding the fact that most my designs are based on lyrics and words of some type, pop music gives me major inspiration.

I came across Lana del Rey, she is gorgeous and has a mythical voice. I went crazy over her album, Born to Die.

But my favorite is Video Games. You can listen to it here.

The music is great, and the composition, but what I like most are the lyrics. Heaven is a place on Earth with you. Does it get any more real than this?

I don’t know, but I like the idea of living the moment, here and now. So why “search” for a heaven outside of this world, for the lack of a better word? It can be as peaceful and heaven-like as you can stretch your imagination to be.

Happy week, everyone, and remember, Heaven is a place on Earth!

Damn right, it’s better than yours.

Hahaha, sorry for the title!

I wanted to make an impression. Success? :/

So, I liked the remakes of “Milkshake” a catchy song by Kelis: you can listen to here.

It goes something like this:

My milkshake brings all the boys to the yard
Damn right, it’s better than yours
I can teach you, but I have to charge…..

Pretty hilarious! But I like the idea and funkiness that an artist can play with. ย 

How about my Rad Tees bring all the boys to the yard? I think yes.ย 

Have fun !

Owls are Invading Us :)

"Owlsome" lettering- green, metallic and pearly painted on grey cotton t-shirt

 

As you already haven’t noticed, I have a thing for owls. It’s not *that* obvious, is it?

๐Ÿ™‚
Well, I said earlier that I want to create a line *only* for “owsome”ness , as I tend to make more and more combinations of colors and style with the cute little letter O, turning into a baby owl. We’ll see.

Meanwhile, you enjoy these ones, and make sure you drop me a message if you want your own owlsome.

This one is in black-white filter:

 

Cheers, everyone!

Make sure you enjoy the last bits of your weekend! xx
