Early Closure For Christmas 2021 December 07 2021

We are so sorry we have closed early for Christmas 2021.  This is mainly due to the fact Jo our designer is recovering from a broken leg and covid and we have been inundated with orders.  We decided to close to ensure all orders we have received are sent out in a timely fashion.  We will be open in the New Year all fresh and raring to go.  
A very Merry Christmas to you all and a Happy New Year.  A billion thanks for all your custom during 2021.

Deidre Barlow January 12 2021

I do that thing when I haven't drawn for a while that I suddenly think I may've lost it. Since Christmas and the new lockdown my attentions have been elsewhere looking at new avenues for when this is all over. So yesterday I thought I'd do a drawing. So here is Deidre Barlow in all her glory. Originally a hand drawing then a scan then digitised. I love her and surprised myself. (the neck was the hardest part haha)!

Christmas 2020 September 15 2020

Christmas in September - yep covid means we need something to look forward to!

Slowly slowly catchy monkey June 06 2020

As shops will be reopening on 15th June we are getting ready to reopen ourselves in a quiet small way.  During the lockdown we relocated all our stock to a warehouse near where we live and will be doing all our own packing and picking now.  We've used the time to look ahead and make some decisions about how we work we have been designing a whole new brand but more on that later.  We've got new tech to help us work smarter.  We are lucky we weren't directly affected by the virus but it has been incredibly frustrating being one of the 3 million #forgottenltd.  Looking forward to some level of NORMAL - whatever that may be.

Corona Virus Closure March 29 2020

Sorry we decided to close as we aren't able to get any government assistance for being self employed  unless we furloughed. We thought we would use the time to focus on our family as the orders had just about dried up.  We will be back asap so thank you for your understanding.  We appreciate all our customers so much and hope you all stay safe and find some appreciation of the down time.  We will return with renewed vigor.  Thanks Nick and Jo X

I'm just a bit (well not just a bit) like a load really proud of the merchandise I designed for the Terracotta Warriors visiting Liverpool's World Museum.  They are expecting around 4 million visitors and so far its been a roaring success. It runs from March through til October and is well worth a visit.
From a design perspective all previous merchandise for the Terracotta Warriors was a little "traditional" I decided to put a modern twist on it.  Every warrior is different so I applied this factor to all the drawings.  Every one of my warriors is different and is accurate according to rank, uniform, head dress so I learned quite a bit in the design process.

Me Da's A Miner Inspiration..... June 26 2017

Always nice to work with talented people and I was delighted to work with Matt Reilly (poet) again.  I wanted to create a gift for a mining museum (Woodhorn Colliery) which had a feeling of warmth and nostalgia.  When I spoke to Matt about him producing a poem I told him this and gave him some dialect words to incorporate into the poem. He came back with this gem and I instantly knew it would resonate with people in the North East. I created this illustration from a photo I took when I was at Woodhorn.  I'm loving the love this has already received and I love the fact this is keeping a little part of our North East heritage alive.

Happy New You! January 02 2017

Blimey can't believe its been so long since I've done a blog post.  Christmas 2016 and has just been a blur since August when the main production was done.  We thought this year wouldn't be so manic as we were really organised but hadn't counted on the number of personalised products which are obviously made on demand going out!
Anyway happy new 2017 - New Years resolutions and all that - to help with that diet we've got a few little gems for motivation!  Think my New Years resolution is to blog more!
