Mad about that man.

Drawing isn’t only done on paper. Here are some of my vector fan art about the acclaimed series Mad Men that I did in Adobe Illustrator. Both of which I LOVE. The first poster is some of Peggy Olsen’s iconic dresses and the second poster is of some of Don Draper’s very cool ties. They make quite snazzy desktop wallpapers, feel free to right click and save.

Get your affairs in order.

It’s a bit morbid for a Friday freebie, but here’s a label for a little notebook everyone should have. I use mine to stipulate my last wishes. But also to write letters to the people who matter to me, which is actually quite a life affirming exercise in gratitude. I have no superstitions about an afterlife but I do want to leave something behind for the people who helped and loved me throughout my life. Something positive. Something not to grieve about and I make sure to include something in each letter that I know would make the recipient smile a bit.

Happiness has your face.

Personally I deeply dislike Valentine’s, I cannot remember one year that it went well never mind special. But in the spirit of love, my gift to you this Valentine’s is this free printable gift tag. Right click, save as, print, cut and paste. Add to your flowers, box of chocolates or diamond earrings, if you should be so lucky, for that personal touch. Just don’t propose, that’s plain corny.

A font of my own.

Behold the beginnings of an exciting new project! I should’ve done this ages ago, but I’ve finally started working on my first font. Which I’ll make available on the blog, free to download, very soon. After Oppikoppi of course. But still, very soon! The raw characters need some editing and refining, but getting digital is actually super easy. Watch this space!

Freebie for your mobile.

Alienation.

“…everybody thinks that I’m a mother fucking alien

I changed my mind a couple times

And everybody thinks I’m fucking crazy…”

Lyrics from my favourite Phfat track, The Dark, off their album You Are Going To Die. 

I’ve been super introverted lately. But I would like to reassure everyone who loves me that I haven’t been hiding, I’ve been working. I’ve been inspired like crazy, so you can expect some seriously dope shit shortly. I get a bit lost because I love working on projects I’m passionate about – and if you don’t know I’m passionate about Phfat you don’t know me at all. Get to know them and download all their tracks, because it’s good for you!

Julle moet lekker naweek! I leave you with my latest most favourite track, Chemical by Jack Garratt. (Thanks to my Mentoring student, Onka for playing me Mr Garratt’s music when I was looking a bit grim. You guys never stop inspiring me!)

A meeting of monsters.
