Puppy Love !

I haven’t been updating posts here, because it’s been nuts busy in here! Well, not to keep you waiting that long, I’ve come to share some goodies that are already shipped and probably on their rightful owners’ chests! 🙂

Here are some puppy- dog illustrations and handmade equin-co t-shirts I’ve been creating lately.

Enjoy!

 

Uzuuundur guncellemedigimi farkettim 🙂 Ama bunun tek nedeni kafami kasiyamamam! Yani, isin asli kasiyacak, oturup yazacak motivasyona sahip olmamam.. Simdilik (!) kisa bir paylasimla yeni yaptigim kopecikli tisortleri paylasacagim. Biraz idare etsin sizi heheheheh

Simdi coktaan balli sahiplerinin uzerlerinde saliniyorlar bu kopecikler.

Puppy love ismini verdigim koleksiyonumdan, kopek cizimleri, ilustrasyonlari ve tabii ki el yapimi equin-co tisortler!

Afiyet olsun 🙂

My Best Friends!

BFF- diamond design and application on white cotton t-shirt by equin-co™ designs.

 

OK, we ALL know how much a girl loves her jewelry. This one is no exception ! Diamond figure (just the figure) is a design I’ve been coveting for a while, and I should say the with simplicity it might as well de-throne the timeless “heart figure”.

So here you go, I’m sharing some of these diamond-orders (!) I’ve had from my clients last weekend.

For me, the below design speaks more, because, well its 3D and diamonds are all dimensions!

In this one, I used dimensional textile paint, relatively easy to find in your local stationary, but I got mine from amazon.com .

They work with heat, it says iron inside out, but I figured it doesn’t necessarily “need” ironing, but it needs heat to be fixed. When the paint reaches a certain degree of heat, it gets fixed. So just for the fun of it, I use blow dry and watch the paint swell! Lol :))

Feast your eyes, ladies, this is as good as it gets,until you get your whole closed covered in diamente 😉

Little owl, big owl. Everywhere filled with cuteness!

Hello everyone!!!

I haven’t been updating quite so often, but it’s only because the orders these couple of weeks were CRAZY. Good crazy, that is! I completely and utterly lose myself when I am in my creative progress, thus this “archiving” process becomes a procrastination beyond imagination!

Buuuuut, here we go !

Last week’s creations of these adorable little owls. An order for a twitter celebrity, if you will 😉

Have an AWESOME , oh, wait, scratch that, OWLSOME week, everyone!

P.S. I am always open for new design ideas, feedbacks and suggestions, so bring it on!

Drumroll! Cheer up for aspiring drummers

In silver, black and multicolor on blue cotton t-shirt.

 

This week’s orders had me exhausted! I will post according to the category, BUT, the general theme was music/dance! Which got me excited because I always listen to music when I work.

Ok, maybe not *always* but often!

🙂

SO this weekend a very excited mom called me and asked for a drum design for her two young boys who apparently just picked up the instruments and oh-so-excited. It rubbed onto me, naturally, so I planned something festive and pop-artsy.

The blue one is for the bigger brother and the grey is for the younger sibling.

Enjoy it everyone, the music lovers, and a happy mom of even happier sons!

I love it when I have excited customers 🙂

Cheers!

Steal like an Artist!

Hand lettered in color markers and digitized by equin-co™

A while ago, I saw Artists’ “golden rules” or “habits” if you like.

An awesome book is named “Steal like an Artist” by Austin Kleon. Read more about it here.

Being creative was thought wrong all along!

I simply love love LOVE everything this booklet of ideas has to offer! It’s basically pure artist common sense put to words!

I have awesome quotes to illustrate later on, now! Great source of quotes 🙂

A page from the book, you can come across it often on Pinterest.

 

Have a great and Creative week, everyone !

 

Adore and Endure Each Other.

“let’s Adore and Endure each other” brain-storm sketch.

 

Hello everyone!

I, once again, would like to start the week with positive and enduring thoughts! Hug around, folks :)))

This last weekend, I had a friend coming over, who is quite the twitter phenomenon “celebrity” and has the ultimate publicity potential! Hah, not that, but I really wanted to give a gift to her, also because she had been following my posts and stating she wanted one, so I made it real!

The thing was, I couldn’t ask her what she wanted, like “Hey, any cool quotes in your mind for me to put on a t-shirt?” That would have ruined the surprise, so I browsed through her albums and tried to catch something that she might like. I saw this photo of  a quote on a wall in London, in a recent trip she had been, so I went with this!

I liked how it turned out, did you?

I wanted to make her more than one, so that she could “publicize” easier (!) but I had limited time, as I had other orders of clients lined up!

The thing about creative/crafty work is you want to give gifts to your friends and family, but the leisure joy of it vanishes when you actually make a living out of it and try to meet the deadlines, *while* being innovative and creative.

I steal time from my work, blur the line between work & play, and prepare some form of art – may it be cupcake decorations, home solutions or jewelry design- just for the sake of it, so that I don’t get carried away in the dull routine of work.

Oh, the deadlines I have to meet?

The clients are happily wearing their equin-co’s as I type. 😉

More posts on that later,

Cheers!

Change is Important!

Hello folks !!

Today’s inspirational quote is, “change your thoughts and your world will change.”

Lots of people are unaware of this simple fact, but it is so effective, knowing we stumble ourselves into the situations we currently hate, as a result of a once very needed occasion.

This “mantra” or philosophy if you will, like any other perfected habits, requires practice. Repetition and decisiveness are the key to permanent results.

I hope this inspires you to begin your own process of whatever-you-like !!

Cheers. xx
