My latest range of cards landed a couple of weeks ago and I’m just getting around to mentioning it on here. Life has been pretty hectic the last few months, with a house and location move in July and my second daughter arriving in the world in August. We’re still in the blurry eyed, broken sleep stage and hence work of the paying bills variety, has been sitting a little on the sidelines.
Anyway, back to the point of the post, the FRUITY VEG, they’re here, REJOICE!
These designs were created over the month of August, intertwined with nappie changes and fuelled by caffeine.
My new workroom was transformed into a vegetable photo shoot studio, with Nature’s bounty and the local farmers crop, scattered about with scraps of paper with quickly scrawled daft wee faces on. It all came together and was a really enjoyable (and healthy) process. It’s given me a few ideas for future work, combining photographed objects and hand drawn elements. Though in true Grey Earl fashion… don’t hold me to it, it could take a lifetime to get back around to.
But for now…it’s time I introduced you to the Fruity Veg range, all available online, here.
As well as being a hoot to think about and come up with, they have also instigated the long overdue decision, to use 100% recycled papers for all of my cards and envelopes…and apparently the recycling process of powered by wind…EVEN BETTER!
The full range is made up of many more designs, which you can see here.
