Stop press! My new MOO business cards have arrived...

New business cards, designed by me, printed by the lovely people at MOO
I'd be lying if I didn't admit that the thought of new business cards always puts me in mind of Patrick Bateman and the business card scene in American Pyscho... but paper stock and embossed type aside I'm always very excited when my new cards arrive, and these ones are my favouite ones yet.

I've had a few over the years now, usually coinciding with a site rehash or change of direction, but I'm hoping these will be around for the forseeable future.

My business card for my illustration work is adorned with my Cheshire Cat grin (also my twitter avatar) with a black back to coordinate with my website www.nlrobinson.co.uk 
My Teeth and Claws business cards for my print and card brand features two different monochrome fronts with my three eyed bat logo and a white reverse with my contact info. www.teethandclaws.co.uk

I've been using MOO for my card for a few years now and am still very happy with them, superb customer service in my experience and I'm absolutely thrilled with the print quality of the cards. Thanks MOO! :)

(My moo cards are the classic cards, 350gsm, matt laminated finish on both sides.)

Summer seagulls... Quick, hide your chips!

I've been drawing seagulls... a trip to the seaside wouldn't be the same without them and their ear piercing cries always put me in mind of summer holidays, long coastal walks and fish and chips :)

As a small child I've had them swoop down and steal chips right out of my hand, (I was a little suprised then that they didn't seem remotely interested in the fish) I've been surrounded by them on more recent trips to the North Wales coastline, always expecting anything I'm eating or drinking to be something for them, and even stalked by one on a recent trip to San Francisco, just one particularly large seagull this time. They always have a beady look in their eye as if they are up to something, and they probably are, they are highly intelligent birds, and for all their faults I can't help but admire them.

These cheeky seagulls are the latest addition to my Teeth and Claws shop
