Hellooooo everybody!

This weekend’s order was a music-themed design which involved highly around amps and guitars and stereo speakers. Which made me excited, actually, i always like a project that revolves outside of my comfort zone (which is animal cartoons-obviously)

This t-shirt actually made its way aaaaaalll the way to Italy! It was a design for an Italian photographer, who, apparently also enjoyed some quality electronic music.

Anyways, hope you guys enjoy the design&the pics!

Troop troop, Clone Trooper!

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!

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 !

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!

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.  

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

Have fun !
