Who says art can't be practical?

It's THAT time of the year again, and if you need to plan your life ahead or keep track of your yesterdays and tomorrows, feel free to view my fun and functional Redbubble calendars. I offer a wide range of subjects, including Landscapes, Birds, Wildlife, art for the Chook-lover (chickens), Africa/Ethnic, Still life, Flowers, Beach and Seascapes, Coffee Art, Crows, Affirmations and many more.

A stunning display of art and a useful way to remember your sister’s birthday, these striking calendars are beautifully dual-purpose. This item is a superb gift idea so put down your clock pen and pick up one of these 12 page masterpieces instead.

RedBubble is now offering a choice of dates on calendars – not only can this calendar still be ordered for 2014, but also for 2015. When you click on “BUY/PREVIEW”, you’ve got the option of choosing your dates!
RedBubble calendars are printed using marvellous futuristic technologies, so complex I can’t go into them here, but I can tell you they are lovingly printed on a luscious 200gsm satin art paper at the striking size of A3 (that’s 297×420mm, or 11.69×16.54″).
They also have very handy wire binding so you can hang them from things like ‘hooks’ on exciting places like ‘walls’.
You can select your own start month, and order right into the future. Everything about them is brilliant, except you’ll have no excuse for missing your sister’s birthday any more!

Smartphone, Tablet and Laptop cases and skins

Did you know that your gadget likes art as much as you? It’s true. I’ve been talking to my phone and it told me that all it really wants is to be fully decked out in one of the zillions of amazingly unique designs I have on offer. So thanks to RedBubble's cases and skins I've got a few ways for you to appease your tech friend and hold off the inevitable device-driven overthrow of humanity for at least another year.

Device Cases
Not only do your phones and tablets want to look great, but they also need protection, from you, because you drop everything and break it. I’ve seen it done, I've done it. So RedBubble has created the toughest cases to protect your most precious of daily devices from getting hurt. The cases come in either a Snap or Tough variation and are constructed from the finest Amorphous Polymer, which sounds like it just crawled from the sea but is actually a very strong plastic that’s apparently used in outer space.

The Snap is a slim fitting one-piece clip-on case. Perfect for keeping the smooth lines in your skinny jeans. I know how important that is. The Tough is a clip-on case with a unique black inner silicon absorbing sleeve to take the stress from a drop. Ideal for people who lead rough or accident prone lifestyles (or just like to sound dangerous).

•    Allows full access to all device ports
•    Long life, super-bright colors embedded directly into the case
•    Extremely durable, shatterproof casing

RedBubble currently offer the snap & tough for the following styles:

•    Apple iPhone 6 & 6 Plus, 5 & 5S, 5C, 4 & 4S
•    Samsung Galaxy S5, S4, S3

I'm not sure if you know this, but your phones, tablets, and laptops are very bashful. And the fact that you insist on trotting them around town in their birthday suits is so embarrassing for them! So why not clothe them while simultaneously protecting them from scratches and gut-wrenching humiliation with one of Redbubble’s new skins?

Each scratch-resistant, custom-cut, vinyl skin is easy to apply and features mind-melting colours, eye-popping designs, and the opportunity to express your unique sense of individuality and all the reasons why you and your device are pretty much the coolest kids on your block.

•    Custom cut to fit your phone, tablet or laptop
•    3M Controltac removable vinyl decal with air bubble grooves and a laminate top coat
•    Scratch resistant backing

I currently offer Skins for the following styles:

•    Apple iPhone 5 & 5S, 5C, 4 & 4S
•    Samsung Galaxy S5, S4

•    iPad (2nd, 3rd, 4th Gen)
•    iPad Mini (1st, 2nd, 3rd Gen)

•    Macbook Air 11", 13”
•    Macbook Pro 13", 15”
•    Macbook Pro Retina, 13", 15”
•    Laptop 13", 15"

 Support Rhino conservation with this lovely Tote bag - 13" x 13" - $19.55 US

As part of continued efforts to set the record straight on rhino horn’s so-called curative properties, three scientific studies were re-introduced, confirming that rhino horn has no medicinal value. The studies were conducted by different teams of researchers at separate institutions. In each case, the results were conclusive: There is no scientific evidence to support claims of rhino horn’s usefulness as a medicine.
The studies “found no evidence that rhino horn has any medicinal effect as an antipyretic and would be ineffective in reducing fever, a common usage in much of Asia.” Testing also confirmed that “rhino horn, like fingernails, is made of agglutinated hair” and “has no analgesic, anti-inflammatory, anti-spasmolytic nor diuretic properties” and “no bactericidal effect could be found against suppuration and intestinal bacteria”. And medically, "it’s the same as if you were chewing your own nails”!
With today’s network of communication tools, such as social media, it is now possible for these findings to reach a global audience like never before – and we can move closer to busting these persistent myths about rhino horn, which are indeed the root of the rhino crisis. By raising public awareness and educating others about the truth behind rhino horn, we can make a difference.


T-Shirts & Hoodies

I love my tees and hoodies so much I could talk about them all day, but that’d be a bit weird! So I’ll just say that I'm immensely proud of the quality of all the garments on RedBubble and the super futuristic technology that creates these unique t-shirts and hoodie prints. The t-shirts are long lasting, individual and extremely useful for abiding by public decency laws.
  • Sweatshop-free, ethically sourced cotton apparel
  • Twelve apparel styles for boys and girls-young and old
  • Huge range of exciting colors
  • Printed using cutting edge direct to garment technologies

Care Instructions

I advise you cold-wash your garments and hang them out to dry. It’ll keep them super soft, looking their best and it’s even good for the environment.


Slim fit, order a size up if you’d like it less fitting. If you like your hoodies baggy, go two sizes up.

The Unisex Tank Top is a pure Jersey cotton masterpiece. It has a loose drape perfect for the summer heat or for layering. Being Unisex I recommend women to order one size down.

The Women’s T-Shirt is a 100% cotton slim-fitting masterpiece. Ethically sourced, beautifully tailored and available in a huge array of bright and cheery colours to suit any season. If suiting seasons is your thing.

The California Fleece Pullover Hoodie is an incredibly long name, but then it’s an incredibly good product.
It’s unisex, 100% fleece cotton, (gets softer when you wash it don’t you know) has a fancy kangaroo pocket and matching drawstrings for doing excellent Kenny impressions. It’s a similar size construction to the Standard American unisex t-shirt, but you may find you want it baggier and therefore one size up may be preferable. It’s a lightweight hoodie, hence the ‘California’ reference, but still cosy as a log fire. A California fleece zipped hoodie is easy to put on and throw off. Because you never know when you’ll need to duck into a phone booth!

The long sleeve version of the unisex/men’s T-shirt. I could write some new copy about how amazing they are, but it would be pretty much the same as the paragraph above.

Unisex T-shirt
Take our unisex T-Shirt and just make the sleeves longer - sizing, fabric and fit are all exactly the same, though unfortunately XXXL and some colours are not available. They’re slightly more expensive because you get more sleeve.

You can find all my T-shirt designs HERE.


Coffee and Travel mugs

For many, a mug is like an appendage. It holds our coffee, tea, cocoa, milk, or other beverages that warm the soul, sharpen the mind, and make life just teensy bit more bearable any time of the day. Whether you’re at home, at the office, in a tree house, under a bridge, or on the go, Redbubble mugs will add a special bit of caffeinated (or decaffeinated) flair to your experiences!
You can purchase these mugs and other products here
I have a wide range of images suitable for all tastes.
The ceramic mug holds 11oz/325ml, is dishwasher safe and features wrap-around prints of your favourite artworks.

Art printed on tote bags

There’s a lot of stuff around these days. Such as phones, computers, wallets, toys, coffee, cats, TVs, newspapers, carrots, bermuda shorts and hats. Sometimes they're yours and sometimes they’re not. Either way you need to be able to transport them. Enter the Redbubble Tote bag.

An especially durable, poly poplin fabric, double sided, full bleed printed, incredibly beautiful carrying device. With a comfortable black cotton shoulder strap and available in three sizes there’s no limit to the exciting things you can carry about. Or the amount of alcohol you can sneak into work.
  • Selected design printed on both sides
  • Three square sizes available: 13”, 16”, 18"
  • 1” wide super strong cotton shoulder strap
  • Soft yet hard-wearing 100% spun Polyester Poplin fabric
