Quiet on the Western Front

The reason nothing has appeared here for some time is because I’ve diverted my spare-time energies to creating this sort of thing.

All manner of people are impressed, and want me to throw together Baby Shower Invitations and Wedding Thank You Cards. I’m more interested in creating things involving human ears, toilet bowls, and chunks of meat —  but I guess I’ll have to postpone the surreal for later.

I should start charging for the cutesy stuff.

If you think you deserved an invitation, and didn’t receive one (and you are actually in the right part of the world to join me on the day) let me know. You too could be celebrating my 30th birthday in juvenile-jumping-castle style!

  1. Charging: yes you should. Cunning skills you have, I and I’m sure others would be willing to pay for them if the price is reasonable.

    Human ears, toilet bowls, chunks of meat: Probably wise to keep your portfolios well separated then. Might be hard to attract clients for the cutesy stuff if they see The Other Neil at work.

  2. This is really cool!

    And yes, I agree with quinn you SHOULD be charging for this stuff. I think customised invitations would go down well with people, its something they have that no one else does. Could prove to be quite lucrative for you.

    I’m going to jump on the bandwagon with quinn again. Might pay to keep both of them seperate for clientele sake.

    : )

    1. Thanks.

      I always struggle to monetise my creative pursuits. I think the middle-class social propaganda machine has a strong hold on me — i.e. work for someone else and make them rich.

      I think I need to build up a bit of a portfolio first. Oh look, already making excuses not to sell my work.
