It's a funny how when you think of doing a print of someone, something or anything at all, that invariably it suddenly pops up in the social conscience. Only the other day I was trying to get the old grey matter going to come up with the latest print offering, when suddenly I remembered an iconic celebrity who would suit my stamp prints down to a tee.
Glass, bottle - bottle, glass. Just like that! A fez. A pack of cards... You know where I'm going. Tommy Cooper. A perfect specimen for my print experiments. Red fez, big face, saucer eyes, sticky out hair. If I can't nail this one I should be sawn in half!
Well it's done and up on the site and it looks like Tommy Cooper - which is good. Now I don't know if I've subconsciously been seeing fezzes before my eyes, but Tommy's making a bit of a revival. When I mean Tommy, I actually mean the story of Mr Cooper, soon to be retold in a new ITV drama. David Thelfall is to play him - he of Shameless fame (love him as Frank - a very underrated actor). Looking forward to this one and no, I didn't jump on the bandwagon. It was more Glass, bottle - bottle, glass!

I'm looking forward to a bit more Morse on Sunday. Endeavour - set in the 1960s, sees Inspector Morse return to our screens at the start of his police career. So am quite excited, but that's only part of the reason... Out of the blue, I've been asked to send my Endeavour print to Colin Dexter (yes the actual writer of the Inspector Morse books!) to hang on his staircase! I have my Endeavour prints with The Inspector Morse Society's online store and he's obviously seen it (thanks to Dr. Richards who runs the society). Am hoping for a signed Endeavour postcard in return to put with my other celeb signings. In the meantime I will be proudly watching Endeavour this weekend as my print wings its way to him. "LEEEWWWWWWIIIISSSSS!!!"

You have to do a double-take - it's not Basil, Sybil and Manuel it's the "Faulty Towers The Dining Experience"! Basil's got his mitts on my print, he does look slightly less than amused though. Maybe Sybil's upset him or Manuel's let his Siberian hamster out again!
Have a look at Faulty Towers for a surreal dining experience with a difference! In the photo Basil is played by Jack Baldwin @JonnyJonJack , Sybil by Suzanna Hughes @SuzannaHughes and bringing up the rear Ed Howells @Howler85 as Manuel.
Thanks to Siobhan @thefaultytowers for sorting out the photo - hopefully the print will make a few quid for charity before Basil puts it on a nag!

I don't know. If I haven't got enough to do - I decide to launch a new range of prints! My first tentative steps into the world of personalisation too. After many hours of scouring old RadioTimes lisings, pawing over the back of La la la la la Look-In and IMDBing films, I've finally put together a series of prints that celebrate Film and TV programmes of certain years.
DecAge... Dec(ade) + Age get it! These prints are perfect for those special birthdays. There's 18th, 21st, 30th, 40th & 50th for this year, all can be personalised if you want with the persons name and date of birth or just have the year in roman numerals at the end.
With plenty of Film & TV shows that have been forgotten over time, DecAge prints will make you smile.chuckle.remember!

Sorry for the blogging silence but since the shennanigans of Christmas, I've been recouperating, letting the old printer have a breather and getting the old design juices flowing to create some more typographic mayhem!
A new range is imminent with TV, film and type at the forefront as usual, but this time there's even... shock horror, personalised versions. Look out for something that is date orientated. I shall say no more...
All will be revealed in a day or so.
