Irritable Vowels and Owls

Irritable Vowels and Owls

I have realised that I’m only happy when I’m making things. Not the kind of things you make at work. Those don’t count because they have to follow so many rules. I’m talking about the kind of things that make you grin. Naughty t-shirts. Paintings for friends. Pewter projects for the kitchen. Fun things.

And this weekend fun things came knocking at my door. A friend posted an image on my facebook page this weekend with a request for a t-shirt. Now that’s what I call a good friend. Instead of laying about wondering which project to work on I had a new project: Irritable Owl Syndrome. What fun! Also, it had swear words and I’m still 10 years old when it comes to swear words *snigger*.

Strangely enough fun things get made in record time too. The Irritable Owl was saying “Fuck Off” to the world 3 hours later at which point Kevin pointed out that I didn’t have to stop there. I could make ALL the irritable things. ALL OF THEM. So now the world also has an Irritable Vowel Syndrome t-shirt. You’re welcome.

Next weekend will probably bring more foul mouthed humour and irritable things. Can you handle the excitement?

Keep Calm and Read OnThis is another semiannual post. It seems anything more than that and we get bad weather down here at the bottom end of Africa. Seeing as the weather is already bad (my ears are freezing!), I thought I may as well. As you can see, some small changes have been made to the blog, colours have  changed and things have been spruced up. Most importantly though, the little Zazzle shop has a whole new range of products. I’m not expecting you to rush out and buy them but would appreciate a visit to the shop to see what I’ve been up to. Go have a look here.

It’s very satisfying to bring a new design to life and even more so when you don’t have a brand manager saying “Move that a bit to the left”. I know all you designers out there can relate. The Keep Calm range was whipped out in a morning and had me almost as happy as Xmas and birthdays. What do you think of making your own version of popular memes?
