Lou’s cafe 24hrs

Now this is a story all about how Lou’s life got flipped, turned upside down and I’d like to take a minute, just sit right there. I’ll tell you how she became the ghost with white hair. It all began one morning when she was running a little late for work and decided to eat a bit of leftover takeaway for breakfast. This turned out to be a very bad decision. Within 3 hours she was dead. It’s unclear why she has been forced to haunt her old workplace for all eternity but she does it with dignity and grace. That is until she remembers the takeaway and goes into screaming banshee mode. It can certainly put you off your breakfast. That’s for sure. You may wonder why I’m telling you this. All I can say for sure is that questions are often more intriguing than answers. 

Cheers

God save the Queen

Do you know what today is? It’s World Bee Day! On this day in 1734 Anton Jansa, the pioneer of beekeeping was born. The purpose of the international day is to acknowledge the role of bees and other pollinators in the ecosystem.

That’s important because a dwindling global bee population can only be bad news for puny humans as the bees pollinate an awful lot of the crops and flowers that we depend on for food. Without them we are somewhat doomed so it’s probably best if we take a bit better care of our little insect cousins and make sure they can continue doing their job.

As a big bonus, they also know how to make honey. Without that we’d be left with wasp gravy and you wouldn’t want that on your morning toast.
This design is due to be one of our upcoming hot foil prints so watch this space…

We fight because we must

With the memory of the Extinction Rebellion protests in Central London still fresh I thought I’d design a propaganda poster of sorts. The speed at which we humans are destroying our own biosphere is nothing short of astonishing. If only we could apply ourselves to less destructive activities we may even have a chance still. So, we fight because we must.

She will make a fine hot foil print. Watch this space…

We don’t care

It’s a simple enough message from us today. But at least we’ve made it look nice. If you look at it for long enough it makes your eyes go a bit funny. It’s probably best to just trust me on that. In fact I think I’d go so far to say that I’ve accidentally employed some kind of optical illusion when I was really just trying to make the font stand out. I think this little bad lad is going to get some magnets glued to the back and then become a bit of street art in some hard-to-reach area. I now just need some method of application where I can get him higher than you can reach on a handy piece of metal…

Pocket size Emma Willis

Since completing an artwork version of Pocket size Emma Willis a while ago I have been itching to somehow make my idea an actual product and finally, with access to a laser cutter, I’ve managed to realise my dream.

Sometimes, when I’m feeling a little low, I imagine a small, pocket-sized Emma Willis giving me a big thumbs up and suddenly everything is better. Now I can just reach for my keys and there she is giving me a pint sized thumbs up. I feel better already.

I know it’s all a bit odd but the muse demands what she demands.

Cheers

Where’s the weekend? (mini magnet edition)

Where's the weekend? (mini magnet edition)

Where’s the weekend? (mini magnet edition)

I know it’s only Tuesday but surely you’ve already asked yourself this at least once. Here, as I’m sure you can tell I’ve gone for an artfully composed shot and stuck my little magnet on my preferred substance to abuse once the weekend is here. In my continuing quest to find fun things to do with a laser cutter I’m expanding from keyrings into little magnet thingamajigs. I’m working my way up to bigger bits but it’s enjoyable starting with little bits to try and familiarise myself with the laser cutter. This bad lad is already on it’s way to its new home in Portsmouth. Good luck to you lad!

Cheers

My mum

Whilst home at Christmas I was rooting around in the attic looking for something and came across one of my mum’s sketches from the late 60’s when she was doing Fashion at university. I really liked it and, as a professional womble was honour bound to take it, so did so and scanned it but didn’t really have an idea for how best to use it until I got access to a laser cutter. My original idea was to somehow make them into bookends but then I remembered I have literally no woodwork skills whatsoever so decided to stick some magnets to the back of and then send home to live their new life as fridge magnets. Good luck to you ladies…

Cheers
