Still here? The blog is now here:
Threadless now accepts pattern submissions for products such as backpacks, scarves, wallets and pencil cases. I’ve uploaded three of my patterns from the archives; you can vote for them here:
Vote for “Soft Serves”
Vote for “Soda Pops”
Vote for Panda Anatomy
Australian Design and Illustration hub Australian Infront are redesigning their website and to celebrate they are holding an exhibition, the pieces in which were submitted by the users of the site. The above was my entry. Enjoy!
Great stuff: Before I even started working on the Hypnowl Empire (my upcoming t-shirt label – haven’t I told you about it?), I applied for AS Colour’s A Little Help Project. The Kiwi T-shirt makers are giving away a start up package worth $10,000 to the most popular t-shirt design as determined by Facebook-likes and sales in their retail shops in Auckland, Wellington and Sydney.
A jury of jet set t-shirt people picked the top 10 entries out of a whole heap of submissions, now it’s up to the people to vote the best. If you want to help me win the thing, there’s a lot you can do with ridiculously little effort:
- Like the design on the Little Help Project’s home page
- Like the design on AS Colour’s Facebook page
- Buy the shirt in AS Colour’s retail stores in Auckland, Wellington or Sydney or online (soon). Preorders can be placed here: firstname.lastname@example.org
I’ll keep you posted!
After several months I again had the time to make a little weekend project. No plan, no concept, just experimenting. Now that I think about it I might make a book out of it. What do you think?
Oh, and it’s also available as a print and more on Society6
Once in a while I send out promo postcards to potential clients. Most of the writing on them is printed, but I illustrate the greeting and the address by hand, which is also a sort of creative exercise. I actually like the address illustrations a tad better, but it would be awkward to publish my mailing list, so I hope I get hired by loads of them, so I can publish their designs. HELLO!
P.S. If you’re an agency, magazine, company or other that would like to receive my promo mailers in the future, just leave a comment or contact me at heiko at heikowindisch.com!
There are five (5) new originals of mine available on my Etsy now: Panda Lazy, Monkey Crazy, Elephants in Pool, Rhino Eats Fruit, Koalas in Ute. They’re all around postcard size, drawn on 190 gsm paper, but there are more details on Etsy, if you’re interested. Enjoy! Link
