Waldo Pancake...

Hope your having a restful Sunday...

because these cards are guaranteed to wake you up!
They are by the talented designer Jim Smith aka 'Waldo Pancake'. Could you come up with a more interesting name? His designs are a mixture of lovely bold colours with a very naive typography style. You will be grinning your head off by the end of this post!

Enjoy! Kelly :)

Gemma Corell...

It's Saturday!!

And today I have yet more lovely looking cards for you by designer Gemma Corell. Not only is her illustrative drawing style so beautiful, her cards are also witty and funny. There is also am amzing bag that I couldn't resist putting on! 'Pugs not drugs' is my new motto I think!

Enjoy! Kelly :)

The new card...

Hey folks!

Been a busy bee but just thought I'd do some posts over the next couple of days about the new kinds of cards coming out recently. These cards will insult you, insult your mother or just plain offend everyone! They will also make you laugh very embarassingly out loud in shops (yes I have), and on top of this they are wonderful to look at.

Will Vincent in particular is somebody who creates a scrummy looking card but also happens to insult you or anyone you know. His recent range of Christmas cards... well lets just say you'll never get a Chrimbo card quite like these. Check out his website here! I especially like the ghetto condiments!

Enjoy! Kelly :)

Starry eyed...

Look what came through the post for me!

I finally got round to registering my 21st birthday present, (bear in mind by birthday is April, oh dear).

It may seem abit egotistical but I like my name so there we go :)

There is now a star named after me for eternity! (Not if you read the small print!)

Go me!

No junk mail!

I picked up this cute little sign in a quirky shop in Headingly, Leeds.

Even though the constant flyers still seem to be shooting their way through the letterbox, at least its pretty!

Hope your all having a nice and lazy sunday!

Currently I am working on a vintage project, with its end market targeted at quirky and fun greetings cards. For my initial drawing development I have been around the city and taken photographs of vintage design and objects to draw from. Some objects have really interesting shapes and patterns and I am hoping to draw from this later on.

Enjoy! Kelly :)
