Etsy Shop Name

A bit about my product range
Quirky and colourful screen prints, tote bags, greeting cards and t shirts. Everything you need to make all your hopes and dreams come true*

*may not actually make your dreams come true

I started an Etsy shop because…
people like my products but they don’t like the look of me but this way they can get the products they want and also not have to look at me.

Also it is a good way of reaching out to a wider range of people who don’t live in Sheffield and who might not normally see my work.

I feel inspired by…
weird and quirky characters you see in everyday life. I try to capture elements of these characters and exaggerate them in my sketchbook, which results in these bizarre looking figures.

When I’m making, I like to listen to…
the sound of baby whales 1999 edition. When that has finished playing i also like to listen to BBC 6 Music and other various music. I’m currently addicted to listening to a mix of Grizzly Bear, TOPS, Fleet Foxes, Brockhampton, Joey Bada$$ and Thundercat.

My favourite product to make is…
possibly screen printed tote bags, even though it stresses me out (because so much goes wrong) when its made its super satisfying.

My plans for the future are…
making my first £1,000,000
making a screen printed book
finding the one
making a series of short looping animations
