Cute, fun design ideas. Animal designs especially. Art, design, animals, pets, pet products, wildlife, excellent clothing design, graphic design, and visual design.
Yep, a lot of interests here. It all started with cute animal designs on funny t-shirts and onesies. A visual catalog, a shop, a hobby. From there it exploded. Why not blog about all the things I love? Why not celebrate the entire world of animal-based graphics, and why not expand outward, into other graphical interests and other animal interests?
Graphic clothing has always interested me. What’s up with solid colors anyway? Prints, calicos, stripes, and geometrics all delight the eye and awaken the senses. But message graphics have always had a special appeal.
If you love dogs, then you’ll understand the love of great items for you and for your dog! T-shirts, gift items, clocks, keepsake boxes, there are so many fun design ideas that celebrate your love of doggies!
Now, if you are a cat lover, then fantastically feline designs are for you, and there are so many! T-shirts, certainly, but cat clocks and lunch boxes and barbecue aprons are all popular and adorable. Those little cat statues that hang their paws or tail over the edge of the shelf? Precious!
What about ferrets? Those fuzzy little weasels. Or rabbits–there are so many bunny lovers!
That more or less covers the standard cute pet lover, but I have a special love for wildlife and agricultural animal graphics as well, including the dapper penguin, the might elephant, and the gracious dolphin. There are also cows, even more popular since the famous Chicago Cow Parade. Monkeys, pigs, wolves, horses, giraffes, turtles, insects (including ladybugs and grasshoppers), owls–all have their aficianados.
There’s a place where cuteness and beauty intersect, where you can transcend kitsch and become really chic and lovely, and that place excites me. Anything can be kitsch, but there’s also the possibility of excellence.
