I have started adding some of my patterned designs to my CafePress store. It includes metal, liquid and kaleidoscope patterns in animal shapes. I’ll be adding these on a few at a time over the next few months:
I was recently reminded of one of my favourite earlier designs, which parodies a horror movie classed as one of the worst movies of all time. The original horror movie was “Attack of the Killer Tomatoes.” I parodied that with “Invasion of the Killer Tomato Squirrels.” This image is available in each of my online stores:

As I’ve mentioned previously, I’ve been busy writing a couple of books in the last year and have neglected my graphic designs. During the past couple of months, I’ve made up for that with HEAPS of new images created and uploaded to the shops (except for the Australian store which I will update with the last of the new images as soon as I can).
While many of my images are original, there are also some that have been created out of old posters or images which I have edited and repaired, and even coloured. Because of copyright issues in Europe, some images of old posters etc were unable to be uploaded, even though they are out of copyright in the USA and Australia. Unfortunately, the copyright laws differ in various countries which makes it challenging at times to know what images can and can’t be used, and just because a photograph or an image has been released into the public domain, doesn’t necessarily mean it can be used. Don’t ask me to explain it – it’s all rather a bit confusing!
Following are some of the images that I’ve created that have been uploaded into the stores – don’t forget, if there’s something you’d like me to create for you – please let me know. You can email me at the following email address (you’ll have to remove the spaces) magdalena_babblejack @ yahoo and then add a dot (.) and com.
Here’s a beautiful image that I found, edited and coloured and then combined with an old water-colour:
I thought this old photograph was rather striking and so recreated it through lots of editing and I added in the coloured eyes:
I had an interesting time creating the following patchwork images. First I began with a couple of windows with rather interesting shapes, and then using images of fabrics, many more than 100 years old, I painstakingly cut them out and copied them across to their individual sections:
This lovely old image was originally an advertisement (out of copyright). It was quite dirty and needed some major cleaning up (digitally). I then removed the references to the original advertisement so that just the image was left..
I created the following image out of two uncopyrighted photographs – I thought it might be something like what could be seen if you were standing on the surface of an alien planet.
One of the other issues I had was the use of photographs of famous people, specifically movie stars. Two of the images I created included Audrey Hepburn and Lucille Ball. Even though an uncopyrighted image could have been released by the person’s agency or movie studio, there was some concern about the exploitation of a movie stars image. I found the suggestion ironic considering how many times I’ve seen Audrey Hepburn’s image splashed across items and posters almost everywhere I go, with no suggestion of copyright anywhere.
Anyway, both Audrey and Lucille’s images were rejected by the online stores who supply the goods on which my images are placed. Weirdly enough though, Albert Hitchcock’s image was deemed acceptable by one!
I’ve also been enjoying creating images from interesting textures and the outlines of animals etc:
And finally – find an old image of a princess, tidy it up, edit and colour it and swap the crown for a floppy hat and here’s the final image. It kind of reminds me of the 60s and 70s.
This may well be my last entry in here for a few months as I get back into editing my last book. Meantime, I do encourage you to drop by the shops – there are other images on items there, that have not been shared here, plus you can also find some of the earliest images that I uploaded.
