Threadless Artist Shop

Again, I have not posted in a fair while, this is due in part to laziness, and work commitments but largely laziness.

 

 

At any rate, I was asked by Threadless to put together a clothing store as they were breaking into the Print-on-demand industry (market?). I liked the idea as Threadless is pretty well-known and has an awesome community so I thought it would be an amazing opportunity. I’d dabbled with Threadless in the past but not really got that involved due to by peeking approach to the internet at large.

 

 

AND SO! Just in time for the wrong of Christmas, here is The Murphed Store!

At the moment I have come up with a brand tee, and repatriated a bunch of older designs to the Murphed brand. I am planning on putting together some fresh work to try and strengthen things up.

 

The current roster in includes:

 

 

 

Murphed TShirt Model

 The Murphed Tee! Available in a multitude of different colours. Somebody bought it in black who used to live opposite the military estate I used to live on.

 

 

 

 

 

Eggs men Model

The Eggs-Men! My personal favourite.

 

 

 

 

 

Triangular Model

 Triangular! This looks simple but took a long time to get right..





Bulbous MODEL2

 Bulbous! I am pretty much just pleased with the name.. The illustration is pretty amazing too!




Anyways, I am glad 2016 is coming to a close, it’s not been particularly easy for me so I am looking forward to the opportunities that 2017 will hopefully bring – I have a big plan which I sincerely hope pans out.

 

SO I will take the opportunity to wish everybody a very happy and prosperous and merry and sparkling and jiggy and dope-eo New Year! I hope all your wishes come to pass.

Until next time!

Cheers,

PRACTICE MAKES PERFECTLY

Hey there,

I accidentally deleted this on Marsedit and don’t now if I can get it back so I’ll just redo.

I’ve had a fair bit of time taken up with attempting to recover money from an unpaid invoice and my deposit and additional money from my Dutch apartment which has left me me un an ungood mood, which has affected the last image in particular I think.

At any rate, I’m enjoying this and can defiantly see progress, which is nice. The 3rd – sly smile image is my favourite.

Portrait Pratical

Once again I am trying to actually do something with my blog (I find it very difficult to bring myself to say blog) and I really don’t know if this even gets looked at so I hope I’m not talking to myself as that is the first sign of madness, I’m told.

Anyway I’ll carry on in the same way I like to shout at nobody in a bus station. Since I have some spare time I am taking the opportunity to practice my drawing skills by drawing a series of portraits (outside of all the other charming aspects of running freelance business). Something I haven’t done for a while.

I am largely focussing on hair, which is the only thing I am referencing as well as making a big effort to draw a wider variety of expressions. I have ordered The Artist’s Complete Guide to Facial Expression by Gary Faigin which is apparently very good and has a picture of a smiling man on the cover.

Here we are so far..
