2011 over and out

Its that 'recycle an old doodle' time of the year!
I don't usually write lots of boring stuff in these posts but I figure that once a year can't hurt. This year I decided to get back into drawing after carefully avoiding it for too long. So when I discovered sites like Zazzle and Redbubble it came as a bit of a surprise that I hadn't found them before. After a bit of the usual artistic doubt (but what if people think my drawing is rubbish, what if these places are a scam, etc.) I got a bunch of stuff out there on the internet. A good chunk of time and effort later and I now have something to show for my efforts. This blog and a whole bunch of drawings!

The bit that really stuns me is that some people have paid money to own something with my doodles on. Thank you so much to those who did actually spend out, you have no idea what a pleasure it is to receive those emails. Thanks also to the people who have helped out voting, reblogging, liking and tweeting about my work. I'm pretty sure I wouldn't be still doing this without all that help.

So here comes another year and I'm hoping that more of the same happens. So please invite your friends to have a look, leave a comment, and maybe even buy something. Should be fun!

Disc Bootik Chart

Disc Bootik Chart from A Clockwork Orange
"Who you getten bratty, Goggly Gogol? Johnny Zhivago? The Heaven Seventeen?"

"What you got back home, little sister, to play your fuzzy warbles on? I bet you got little save pitiful portable picnic players. Come with Uncle and hear all proper. Hear angel trumpets and devil trombones. You are invited!"

I might have mentioned in passing that A Clockwork Orange is one of my favourite films. Well the Disk Bootik scene is one of my favourite bits of the film. I've always wondered what the bands and songs are on the chart, so with the help of a pause button and slow motion I figured it out. Sadly (for me) it just makes it even more interesting. What sort of band are Bread Bros? Is Jelly Rock a dance? Is any of it any good?

The Disc Bootik chart is now available on the Doodle Dojo Store as prints, t-shirts and iPhone cases.

Low Flying Spacecraft on Tee Raiders

Health and Safety are important in the modern workplace.
The awesome people at have decided to print Low Flying Spacecraft! That means that you will be able to get hold of this Star Wars based design for 72 hours for only $10! It will be available from Monday 26th through to the end of Wednesday 28th of December. TeeRaiders also sell hoodies starting from $30 so if you need to keep yourself a bit warmer you can get one of those instead.

Head on over to my Facebook page to get the latest info on print dates and new designs as soon as it happens. I'm thinking of having a bit of a giveaway when I get past a certain number of likers, and in tribute to the Star Wars-ness of this design I think the magic number has got to be 66. So share with your friends, tweet to your twips(?) and reblog to your followers to make sure that magic number gets hit.

Swiss Assassin

Swiss Assassins are ready for anything
My latest doodle is based on Assassin's Creed. With the release of the newest game there hasn't been a lot else going on in my house, which meant I had plenty of time to consider the weapons. If the Turkish assassins have this fancy hook blade why wouldn't other nationalities have there own version? So the obvious choice was the Swiss. They love having a tool for everything so why wouldn't their hidden blades be ready too? So here he is, Ezio Auditore after a visit to Switzerland. No can will stay safely closed now.

You can show your love for multi-purpose tools and 15th century assassins by getting a T-shirt. Check out the Doodle Dojo Store for more info.

Party on, Who?

Party on, Who?
Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure is one of my all time favourite films. And Doctor Who is one of my all time favourite TV shows, so when I started wondering what would happen if they met up it was fairly obvious that it would end up as some sort of picture! The TARDIS is well known for being slightly out of control, so its bound to turn up occasionally in places it shouldn't. The three future dudes manage to hide their surprise pretty well though I thought.

This one is also available on things to decorate yourself and your stuff. Head over to the Doodle Dojo Store to get more info.

Stormtrooper Eyetest

Random stormtrooper eye testing begins on the Death Star
Stormtroopers always seem to get a bad rap for being rubbish at things like shooting guns at people. But I think its a bit harsh myself. Its no good blaming them when the emperor wouldn't hire a decent optometrist when he was building the Death Star. Lots of money for detention centres and garbage crushers, nothing for vision correction. He was going to put it right for Death Star 2 though, the optometrist moved in the day before the rebels attacked. Things just might have been different if it had been a week or two earlier.

The Doodle Dojo Store has the links to get yourself one of these on a T-shirt, sticker or iPhone case.
