hiya and a big thank you for visiting me I appreciate it, if you watched the little vid then you will realise I found and had a little play with a free online pixel animator, it’s called piskel if you fancy a go it’s fun, and no doubt you watched lil cady tell you why all my clothes are named, although that was my very first go at animating pixels so I will elaborate; on any given day, at any given time, whether asleep or awake, there is many ideas in my head, today for example I have seen a most beautiful flower, a surfinia, in the most glorious pink colour, I really should get a camera, and I know I won’t rest until I have used that colour, that is the beginning spark. After around eight, maybe ten hours, of arty stuff I will have say, two, or three, finished pieces that I will use. These pieces are finished art works and since my very first piece of art as a wee lass I have always named my art, pretty sure I came out that birth canal waving a paintbrush and saying in proper yorkshire; I name this piece creation! I have no idea how to begin actually writing that in a yorkshire style so you will just have to imagine a tiny baby yorkshire accent, it helps if you sing on ilkley moor bah tat first, damn good song that, I defy anyone to listen to it without singing along and having visions of heather and wind blowing a gale and…… so where was I? Most often as I am working on them a name will develop, don’t know how or where it comes from just works it way through as I am lost in a world of colours and pretty things 🙂 somehow through the process either a phrase or mood, will filter through, sometimes it’s from a tune I like, for instance ‘behind blue eyes’ is the name of a tune by The Who, and it just filtered through as I worked and bingo as they say, well they used to, does anyone still play bingo? sometimes I don’t have anything come to me and that’s when I turn to my wee list of beautiful Irish names, I love all Irish names and they have the most wonderful meanings, so most often a product will have produced it’s own name or you will see one of my favourite Irish names, and that my dear friend is why you see every product from a skirt to a swim suit proudly bearing it’s name.
