I sat down today to draw a moped for my retro collection. When I was done it was clear the design needed more. So a squished and squeezed this giraffe onto it. The cartoon style giraffe has a cheeky face and it's tongue is trailing behind it. A fun design for fans of retro mopeds, and motor scooters. This design is one other products in my redbubble store. Just click on an image to see them all.
The Rime of the Ancient Mariner. I realise this image is essentially the opposite of the way the poem goes but I still feel it represents this classic tale well. The poem was written by by the English poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge. It is a sailors tale of a epic journey at sea.
A ship is driven south by a storm to Antarctic waters. An albatross appears and leads them to safety. However the Mariner kills the albatross. As the whether calms and warms the sailors are happy until the wind stops.
"Day after day, day after day,
We stuck, nor breath nor motion;
As idle as a painted ship
Upon a painted ocean."
The crew hang the albatross around the mariners neck to show the burden he carries for this.
Ah! Well a-day! What evil looks
Had I from old and young!
Instead of the cross, the albatross
About my neck was hung.
The poem goes on as the death and despair visit the ship, but the mariner is spared. When he prays the bird falls from his neck, but the burden new leaves him, he walks the earth telling his tale.
This design has a black and white albatross flying with a human skull around it's neck.

I can't believe I am writing this or that anyone would believe that Redbubble is a scam site that steals from artists. But the fact is there is a blog post and face book page out there which says just that.
In that blog the writer claims that Redbubble
- steal art
- delete your profile and sell your art
These statements are not true. If you read the comments beleow the blog you find the writer was selling stolen art. The writer said it was fine as these items were 5 years old and therefore out of copyright. The reality is that copyright is generally life plus 50-70 years.
I have a store at Redbubble and I am extremely happy with it. The trick is doing your own art and keeping it original.

A layered collage of piano keys. This music inspired, piano key pattern has the keys marked out with their respective notes. This was inspired by my daughters keyboard, which is marked in this way to help her learn the notes. The keys are coloured in progressive shades of grey. This gives the keyboard a zig-zag appearance when viewed from a distance. This design is for sale on a variety of products in my society6 and redbubble stores.
