Me Da's A Miner

Always nice to work with talented people and I was delighted to work with Matt Reilly (poet) again.  I wanted to create something for a mining museum which had a feeling of warmth and nostalgia.  When I spoke to Matt about him producing a poem I told him this and gave him some dialect words to incorporate into the poem.  I created this illustration from a photo I took when I was at woodhorn.  The colours and feeling I think are spot on.  I'm loving the love this has already received.

Love is in the air......

Love is in the air with loads of different accents here at Wotmalike HQ!

Our options cards are going down so well - especially the one about putting the BINS OOT!

Love makes the world go round apparently!

Happy New You!

Blimey can't believe its been so long since I've done a blog post.  Christmas 2016 and has just been a blur since August when the main production was done.  We thought this year wouldn't be so manic as we were really organised but hadn't counted on the number of personalised products which are obviously made on demand going out!
Anyway happy new 2017 - New Years resolutions and all that - to help with that diet we've got a few little gems for motivation!  Think my New Years resolution is to blog more!

New Liverpool City Brights

Horse Cards, Equestrian Gifts by Wotmalike
Well its been ages since I've blogged - naughty me! Been week in week out adding more new products to our ranges as well as assisting in the production of the personalised items we sell everyday.  We have successfully licensed our equestrian range to a big wholesale company in the UK and are still waiting to finalise our world wide license with a paper goods company.  Its lovely to see so many horse lovers tell us how much they love this new range.  There are more cards, ceramics and textiles to come later this year.
Our new CITY BRIGHTS range has been really well received in Liverpool again loads more to add to this range!  We have introduced new technology to give a fabulous bright and vibrant look to our new sign designs whilst still being permanent and waterproof.  A particular highlight recently has been the DILLY DING keyrings for Waterstones Leicester (obvs after Leicester City won the league)!

New Year New Range - Horsey - Charlton Hall Designs

We are so happy to announce the launch of our new range of cards and gifts with an equestrian/country theme.
Loving both horses and dogs this range was designed from the heart. The illustrations have been painstakingly drawn to give a modern contemporary look to a traditional equestrian/country theme which are suitable for all ages and genders. The range consists of greeting cards for all occasions with fabulous bold RED satin ribbon rosettes (red is for first place in UK) to accompany lovely mugs, household textiles, coasters, key rings and wooden signs as well as gorgeous prints - with more designs and products in development. This new range by Wotmalike has been named Charlton Hall Designs in honour of our gorgeous sadly missed friend Joanna Charlton Hall.
