I have had this idea for a while. Ever since I started writing the story about Brontide and Wiggle, I thought to myself, wouldn’t it be great to have a pillow of Wiggle sleeping?
A few years ago I used to print my illustrations on kid’s t-shirts and sell them on Etsy, so I already knew a wonderful lady, right here in Cape Town, that was able to print to print straight onto fabric. The best thing about this is that she prints it digitally. So unlike those cheap t-shirts that have those transfers that go sticky in the wash, or peel off, the digital print goes straight onto the fabric, meaning that there is nothing to peel off, there is nothing to disintegrate over time, it just stays cheerful. It also means that if you happen to lie on it, face down, you can still breath, making it ideal to use for pillows for children who might just do that! (more…)
