  2. Homemade Camera Pouch

Last month I got a Nikon 1 and wanted a case to keep it safe while out and about, the official Nikon case is pretty expensive at £50.00 - out of my budget - so I brought a third party case from Amazon which was advertised as fitting the Nikon 1 - but when I tried the case - it was massive and looked like a oversized cartoon case!

So after a lot of fruitless searching, I had the idea of a drawstring bag, I had one for a pair of Sony headphones many years ago that would have been ideal (but that was stolen at a gig, long story).

I wanted a padded pouch so I ordered two 15 x 20cm drawstring bags from The Clever Baggers for 72p each and employed my Mum - because they’re good at these things - to stitch together the two bags with a lining of foam in between for some padded protection. Job done for a fraction of the cost and after about a month of use — I’m really pleased with it.

  3. Society6 have just launched duvet covers, they look great and they’re another fabulous product idea.

    I sold my first one yesterday and I hope it’s the first of many. There’s only a couple of my designs that have been automatically added at the moment, so I’ll be adjusting some of my other images over the next week to get more designs set up.

    Have a look; society6.com/martinlucas/duvet-covers

  4. (500) Days of Summer Wallpaper

    These wallpapers were up on my blog before I moved things from WordPress to Tumblr — they were lost in the move — and I’ve now finally got all the links sorted out and you can download any of the resolutions for various devices below;

    320 x 630 (iPhone)
    640 x 960 (iPhone 4, 4S)
    640 x 1136 (iPhone 5, 5C, 5S)
    1024 x 1024 (iPad)
    2024 x 2024 (iPad 4, Air)
    1024 x 768
    1280 x 800
    1280 x 1024
    1366 x 768
    1440 x 900
    1680 x 1050
    1920 x 1080
    1920 x 1200
    2560 x 1440

    Over the next few weeks, I’ll be making a few more wallpapers from my portfolio of alternative movie posters and movie cars.

  5. Out of the four prints I submitted into the Tendring Hundred Show (a country event held nearby each year) I sold three of them — those three up there! The one I didn’t sell was my most popular movie poster — (500) Days of Summer.

    I’m so pleased, and I got lots of great feedback from people checking out my prints. One of the organisers who I know mentioned a stand with a batch of my prints next year… and even a demonstration… I’m not quite sure I’m in a position for that. But who knows?!

  7. I thought I’d upload a few crops and details of my Lego Movie poster along with some of the product variations available on Society6. When printed on a 16 x 24in print, the bricks are 100% to scale, at 300dpi and 4800 x 7200 pixels, the image is scaled down and a lot of the detail is lost - something preview images on gallery sites don’t always show - which is a shame.

    I’ve tried to crop rather than resize for the different products available, so on iPhone and iPad skins for example, I’m expecting the bricks will also print to 100% scale.

    There’s currently free postage and $5.00 off Society6’s new biker tank tops, you have to use the following link to receive the discount;

    This promotion expires on Sunday the 13th of July.

  8. It’s been a while since I’ve done an alternative movie poster, check out my hand drawn poster for The Lego Movie;

    I had the idea for this one a while ago - it’s taken quite a few weeks to colour this one in! As usual on Society6 it’s available in a number of products such as mugs, bags, device cases and skins. I’ve also put a blank ‘colour it in yourself’ version.
