Zazzle Collections

If you’re looking for a particular style or image type, I’ve set up a series of collections in my Zazzle store which may help you narrow down your choices.

Following are links to my ten collections – why don’t you head on over and check them out!

Busy Time has Kept Me Away

First off, let me apologise for not posting anything recently – I have been extremely busy with selling my home and buying a new one. That means I will continue being very busy for a few more weeks yet, so I may not get back to post much during the next 6 weeks or so.

I LOVE to create quirky and unusual images, not just because they’re fun, but because I think it would be great to wear or have something unique and attention grabbing that makes you stand out from the crowd. Following are some of the images that I have created that I thought you might enjoy. These are available on a multitude of items in the various shops.

First is the cute frog in a tux. As you can see here, it’s available in a mousepad.

I found an image of the fellow in the top-hat in a balloon – a genuine photo from the early 20th century that I repaired, edited and coloured. I wondered how I could make it quirkier still, and eventually came up with the following:

Balloonist, moon and fish etc SM

Balloon antics – if animals could fly

For some reason, I wanted to make a crazy piglet, and here he is:

I began my quest into really quirky territory when I came across this little chipmunk photo and wondered how I could feature chipmunks and squirrels in quirky images.

The next step was to put a squirrel into space.

Since I was already into a squirrel theme, I thought it might be funny to make a squirrel the monster or creature in an old-fashioned horror movie.

Curse of the Squirrel Mummy

This naturally led into ideas of classic horror movies combined with the squirrel theme:

Finally, a parody of the movie classed as one of the worst horror movies of all times, I went a little overboard with “Invasion of the Killer Tomato Squirrels”:

I still have other squirrel ideas swirling around in my head, but I decided to take a break from squirrel horror movie themes for a while. I love it though, when I come across quirky old, black and white photos. Sometimes ideas dance around in my mind for months before I come up with a concept that I think will do it justice. Here for example is one such image that I am yet to colour and place into an appropriate scene:

They sure make cars small these days, don’t they?

That’s about all for the moment – my mind is unfortunately, very focussed on packing and moving house and all the myriad tasks I need to complete. So, my creative juices will have to be put on hold for a bit.

I look forward to catching up with you soon.

Creating graphics is one of my passions and there are several places online where one can set up a shop where the manufacturer produces a variety of items using my designs.

I also create specialised graphic designs to your own specific requirements: just let me know what you would like and as long as the product is available in any of the shops, I can make it for you. (There are some limitations, ie I cannot use copyrighted images, icons, photos or images.)

I thought that in my first entry here I should share some of my earlier graphic designs. All of the people in these art deco images were extracted from black and white photos from the early 20th century. These were painstakingly edited, repaired and recoloured and then merged with appropriate backgrounds and images.

PS (You may be wondering where the name “Miss Terry Woman” comes from. It was a username I thought up many years ago, based on the term “Mystery Woman” and one I thought was an appropriate term for a graphic artist whose imaginings can sometimes be quite mysterious, and often very quirky.)
