Hello and Happy Handmade Monday to you. You probably know the drill by now – but there’s more info here if you need it.
I’ve been playing catch up with orders this week, which always means there isn’t much design time. However, with requests for several new ideas including spiders and The Stig, I’ve had to get my design side into gear (I’ve just realised there’s a pun there if you look hard enough but maybe you’d need to be a Jeremy Clarkson fan to get it).
This is what I’ve come up with . . .
Introducing The Stig (of Top Gear fame, of course ) . . .
And a hairy, red-eyed spider (possibly related to some of the thuggish spiders I find in my studio from time to time) . . .
on a black background, as per the customer request, which was a bit challenging, although making the spider dark grey with lighter highlights seems to have worked. The customer requested red eyes – and I think that was a good choice – it makes him look a little spooky and slightly menacing. Could be a good idea for a Hallowe’en gift!
The web and the writing are in silver, which works well against the black.
I’ve started to update the door hangers page on my website – it hadn’t been updated in ages and everything looked so dated. There’s always a huge sigh of relief here when there’s a web page update done and ticked off the list!
