'Seasonal Stretch' Advent Calendar now available...

...and the final Christmas product pestering is here - the Stretch Advent calendar!

Featuring Stretch in a cosy scarf and twiggy antlers, he is being helped by his robin pals who are festooning said antlers with baubles and trinkets.



There are no chocolates behind each of the 24 windows - instead there are 24 different images featuring Stretch in all manner of festive guises - here are two examples - such fun!



Children's Christmas carriers...

Hot on the heels of Stretch are my range of retro Christmas character bags inspired by the 1930's and 40's advertising cartoon characters.



All available now, again from Not On The High Street.com

'Stretch' Christmas tote bag...

A new tote bag design is now available at my Not On The High Street store - perfect for Christmas shopping or as an alternative to a traditional stocking.

'Stretch' Advent Calendar design...

I have finally finished the designs for this years Advent Calendar.

Here is the final image for the front - an enhanced version of one of my Christmas Cards.



The interior windows feature lots more of Stretch wearing funny Christmassy costumes.

Currently at the printers and cutters, the finished product will be available at the end of the month.

A mixed emotion morning...

I was just informed by Alex T Smith that Betty from Corrie died this morning so i'm very sad - she was a brilliant character.  I hope she will have fun with Blanche in the big Street in the Sky.

On a happier note, a lovely new Moo delivery arrived this morning containing my new Stretch Christmas Cards and new mini business cards which if/when I meet you I will be giving out willy nilly (whoever he is!);

Streeeeeeeeetch logo...

I completely distracted myself yesterday by designing a Stretch logo to go on the back of all his bits and pieces.

I should have been finishing off the advent calendar interior, whoooops!  (I'll do a bit of that today instead).

'Stretch the Sausage Dog' arrives!

Introducing my latest character 'Stretch the Sausage Dog'!

Stretch's favourite time of year is Christmas, so what better time of year to introduce him to the world (well a few people on Facebook and Twitter!)

He is available in the form of three Christmas Cards just now, but he will be available on an Advent Calendar within the next couple of weeks, and a full range of products and cards will be released throughout 2012...

Click on the first image to see him in his shop.

I hope you enjoy looking at him as much as I enjoy colouring him in weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

'Sleepy Stretch'

Advent Calendar now available online...

Another seasonal post but as it's a chilly one out there it seems more forgivable today!

I sold a number of my 'Christmas Toadstools' Advent Calendars last Christmas in the shops of Crouch End and this year it is available online at Not On The High Street.com.

The calendar features the traditional 24 windows with a charming little design behind each window - no chocolate inside but the children that had one last year really enjoyed the pictures!

I'm currently working on a new calendar for this year featuring my new character 'Stretch the Sausage Dog' - more info on him coming soon.
