42 Uses for Towels

A towel, is about the most useful thing an interstellar hitch hiker can have.
The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy has a few things to say on the subject of towels. And (as I may have mentioned once or twice before) I'm a big fan of the Guide. So I thought I would put my brain in gear and come up with a few uses for them myself. I took a bit of inspiration from Douglas Adams himself and then went off on my own tangent for a while thinking up new things you could do with a fluffy bit of cloth. When I had counted them up I found I was pretty close to, but not quite at, 42 things. This is obviously not good enough so I had to go and rack my brains a bit more. Much brain ache later this is the end result. A full instruction manual of why you should never leave home without a good, sturdy towel, you never know what it might come in handy for.

Of course this is no exception to the usual rule. If you would like to get your hands on this design, its available at Redbubble and Society6 with all the details on the Doodle Dojo Store. Make sure you get your order in before towel day!

Check out Ackbar's multicar Insurance Deals!
While watching TV the other day and an advert for Admiral Car Insurance came on. This is only going to make sense if you live in the UK I'm afraid but geography still counts for something in this world so there you go. I was idly thinking to myself that the only admiral I was ever bothered by was Ackbar and this idea just appeared straight away. I started sketching everyone's favourite Mon Calamari admiral, and in the end I was pleased enough with my doodling to turn into something a bit more polished up.

So here it is. A fairly weak joke based on a UK only insurance firm released into the wide world of the internet. Sounded like a great plan at the time.

As usual this is available at my Redbubble and Society6 stores on a wide range of awesome stuff. Head over to the Doodle Dojo Store to find all the info in one place.
