Programming is like Sex…

As an Instagram user you’re always happy about hearts and new subscribers, right? Two days ago I uploaded one of my posters instead of my usual art journaling pages, “faces in places” and random photos.

Wow, that image got more likes than any other of my pics!

It seems that there are quite a lot programmers out there who share my humor. And/or they can relate to the quote…? It’s a quote by Michael Sinz, here you go:

I think the text is a little too small. Okay on a large monitor, but on a phone screen? *squint*

Programming is like Sex

Do you think Bill Gates would like such a poster?

Tutorial: Polo Shirt in Charlie Brown’s Look 1

Then you can add different layers to your liking. I want to try this technique with bold colors as well, but for now I simply used it as a base. For the current Get Messy season of “Happy”, I did this spread in my favorite colors:

I wish I had more time for experimental art, but I am working on two fonts which I had planned to release this weekend. Well, my child caught a bad cold, so my priorities shifted :) Anyway, I can show you a preview of one of the fonts:
HAPPYMAIL

Now doesn’t that look promising?

Wish me luck that I’ll be able to publish this happy little font within the next days!


My Christmas Cards 2015

Even though some of my postcards are rather naughty, I can be nice as well 😉 – these are classy and a bit vintage, some of them were inspired by this card:

While I was at it, I made these greeting cards as well:

Do you like them? I’m happy about your feedback 😀
