Busy, Busy, Busy

In the past few months, in between my other tasks which have been keeping me very busy, I’ve put in a little time here and there, creating some more designs, specifically focusing on abstracts. Following, for example, is the top of the Empire State Building.

I noticed recently in my Zazzle shop that many of my images were limited in size and shape, and so that impacted on the number of posters I was able to provide.

I’m slowly working my way through and uploading some of my older images onto the posters to ensure there is a broader range available.

Here for example is one of the new posters, using one of my older images:Link here

Thanks for dropping by.

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:

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.

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.
