Under my desk.......

This sweet little sight tickled my fancy today; a cardboard box under my desk containing all the prototype animals that I have made in the quest for the perfect shape/colour combination. I am pleased to say that the finalized chicks and rabbits have made it up onto now, so hopefully they will soon be popping up in homes across the globe.

Studio Mate of the Week #2

This is Kevin. He is the lucky inhabiter of the closest thing our studio has to an executive suite (an office with its own door). When he's not talking he runs a very hip design studio:

Spring animals part 2.

So, joining the chicks is this gang of sweet little rabbits. Will hopefully get the templates for them up on the site today.

Saltdean Shade, after and before

I recently really enjoyed printing some lengths of this "Saltdean" fabric to be made up into supersized lampshades (available at This printing is all done at a studio I share with a bunch of Brighton creatives (see studio mate of the week #1 below) It's so nice to step away from the computer, turn the phone off and just lose oneself in the steady, methodical process that is screen-printing.

Studio Mate of the Week

This week's studio mate of the week is Lee Baker. He's a music producer by day and an irritatingly talented artist by night. Though I think the art thing is creeping into the day a bit - judging by the fact that its 2.30pm and he's quite clearly painting. You can see more of his work at

Introducing Valentiny

Now I have to admit that, being a little bit long in the tooth, Valentine's day has been slightly off my radar of late, but remembering the frisson of finding an unexpected card or gift on the morning of the 14th Feb led me to invent Valentiny; a tiny owl grapsing an even tinier envelope in his beak. So why not sneak him onto the doorstep or desk of that someone who takes your fancy. I've just posted the DIY kit on It's just £2.00 ($3.25) for the pdf kit and it will take you about 15mins to make the owl & card and then another 10 mins if you want to make a cute little presentation box, also included in the kit.
