Adore and Endure Each Other.

“let’s Adore and Endure each other” brain-storm sketch.

 

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 Β 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. πŸ˜‰

More posts on that later,

Cheers!

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

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 πŸ™‚ 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!!

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. Β 

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

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?

πŸ™‚
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

Yet another version of “Stressed- Desserts” Combo

"Stressed spelled backwards; Desserts" lettering painted on baby blue cotton t-shirt

 

So, my best client- my father- asked me to do a design with bold letters and thick colors; preferably with switched letters! With so much restriction, I didn’t have the only thing I needed; The Quote!

But I checked into my portfolio, only to find “stressed – desserts” combo! It would be perfect! I thought, with so many letters available for switching and turning and playing around. πŸ™‚
The message itself is like worthy too, He always has been the laid-back kinda guy.

So here it is, the final work!

Enjoy,

xx
