Nuray and Tugce showin’ off equin-co T-shirts on the way

I’m pleased of the feedback, too, since they’ve so kindly uploaded the photos, tons of people have been ordering song lyric concept t-shirts!

Some of the comments on Tugce’s page also showed the intrigue from participants, asking where’d they got them!

Sweet!

Thanks, ladies, for voluntarily modeling for me, while having the most awesome time!

Enjoy some of the pics;

Cookies, anyone?

Cookie Monster with “Cookies” caption hand painted in brown and pink on light yellow cotton t-shirt. Zip detail.

 

HELLO WORLD!

This just in; Ekin creates this ‘order’ in the lack of a plain t-shirt !

Luckily it turned out great and the client loved it 🙂 The pocket detail was a minor one, and I thought I could still pull of a little line *and* have a great design in the front.

But I didn’t want any fuss at any point of the shirt, so I thought “why not include it in the design?” The zip acted like a cute mouth to the monster and It made the client want to throw some actual cookies in! At least that’s what She said !!

Enjoy, everyone!!

Birthdays Are Great!

Hand lettered in ink on paper and digitized

Past saturday was my 25th birthday, so I put this onto my Facebook cover! Festive, huh? I also made a matching t-shirt to go with it, but my friends took all the pictures, and I never had any time to take a decent web-site worthy picture of it! So more to come in the next post 🙂

It was a weird feeling, though, turning 25, a quarter of a decade.. But it was such a relief that I got to celebrate it with my old(er) friends! They kept commenting “Oooh, you are such a baby, you still are a young little thing!” so I felt a little better:)

Don’t get me wrong, though, I *do* know 25 is a young age, so is 30, but in my personal journey, I felt different, numerically and psychologically.

So, feel festive, today, people! It’s a great beginning to the week, sunny and warm may :))

Cheers!

I only miss you when I’m Breathing.. aaah.

Hand lettered in ink on paper and digitized caption “I only miss you when i’m breathing”

Proceeding with song lyrics…

Today’s song is “Breathing” by Jason Derulo. I’m all for listening to mainstream radio and pop music at the moment, so, sorry this is all you get guys.

🙂

But I do like the lyrics of this song, and you can listen to it here.

I have felt like I miss someone like, as I’m breathing, every second. I know lots of people who have felt the same, so this gooey romantic piece goes for all of us 🙂

Not necessarily suffering, though. You can still miss and love someone without the pain and the drama, just sheer joy and sweet blues when you are not around them. (You know I like to keep things light’n’happy, come on.)

So, enjoy today’s drawing!

Cheers and happy week!

Imagine…

OK, I know lately I’ve been into “you’re amazing” and “always know you can” and be happy  and self-help stuff and bla bla…

I can easily say that I am not hardcore into these kind of stuff. But, (and that is a BIG but) I *know* you can improve a lot and achieve much better when you follow common sense and embrace an open mind.

Whenever I come across a self-help book, (you know it, I have read a dozen of those!) I immediately search the substructure of the whole idea. Be it the author, the geographics, the politics or the economic culture behind it, IF I find a connection that touches my heart and appeals to me, that means the *method* is right. Speaking of which, I am not into “methods” at all. To me, the ultimate positive thinking is really, really embrace the momentary situation you are in. Be content with it. Be content with yourself. Everything is not going to be okay, Everything is OK right now. I mean what excuse are you going to come up with to prove me wrong? Deep in everyone’s heart, I know all kinds of thinking and perceiving are positive, anyway.

The human nature is thought to be incapable. We practice our incapabilities everyday through media, health system, even through politics. The fact can not be further from it, the human race is capable of great things.

This is not faith, not a new age philosophy, nothing with a fancy label. Just common sense.

Anyways:) Enough with the seriousness, here is today’s drawing,

Remember: You CAN Imagine!!!

Don’t let you hold back yourself 🙂

Cheers!

Happiness !

Today, I’d like to put emphasis on happiness, and happiness only!

Just stop for a second. Stop what you are doing and be happy! Don’t make excuses, don’t hesitate, don’t “but, bla bla bla” Just be grateful that you are breathing and be happy!

Try this at least twice a day, you *will* see results!

Heaven is a place on Earth

“Heaven is a place on earth” writing in blue glitter and silver, on black cotton mix t-shirt

Whenever I get an order, I brainstorm by listening to music. Normally I enjoy classical concertos and modern covers of them, but I find it helpful listening to mainstream radio for a fresh change, as well. Don’t get me wrong, I am not always “Ooh, can’t  do without my Bach!” I just like the feeling it gives me.

Regarding the fact that most my designs are based on lyrics and words of some type, pop music gives me major inspiration.

I came across Lana del Rey, she is gorgeous and has a mythical voice. I went crazy over her album, Born to Die.

But my favorite is Video Games. You can listen to it here.

The music is great, and the composition, but what I like most are the lyrics. Heaven is a place on Earth with you. Does it get any more real than this?

I don’t know, but I like the idea of living the moment, here and now. So why “search” for a heaven outside of this world, for the lack of a better word? It can be as peaceful and heaven-like as you can stretch your imagination to be.

Happy week, everyone, and remember, Heaven is a place on Earth!
