  1. Before my study at home turned into a nursery I had a few of my movie posters hanging in there, now that room is no longer mine (!) they’re going spare. So, who wants one?
I’m going to give one away each week, first up is my Inception alternative movie poster. You need to be following me on Twitter, then retweet this;

The print is 16 x 24in (406 x 610mm) and includes an extra 2in (50mm) border which gives it an overall size of 20 x 28in (508 x 711mm).
The competition will end on Sunday the 31st of August and I’ll notify the winner via Direct Message on Twitter, I’ll need your postal address - I will of course send the poster anywhere in the world free of charge.
If you’re not fortunate enough to win the print, then don’t worry, it’s available to purchase from my Society6 print shop here.

  2. Last night I finally uploaded a set of new movie car drawings I’ve been working on to my Print Shop on Society6, the three original 1960’s Mini Coopers from the 1969 film The Italian Job.

    The Red, White and Blue Minis are all up on my Society6 page and as usual they’re available in lots of different printed products; from prints to device cases and from T-Shirts to rugs. There’s currently free worldwide shipping on Society6 at the moment - with no mentions of an end date for this offer - so order while it’s available!

    Admittedly there’s only a couple of duvet covers on there at the moment, I haven’t had a chance to go through and resize all my artwork yet, hopefully this little promotion might give me the emphasis to do it this week!

  6. 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.

  7. 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

  8. (500) Days of Summer Wallpaper

    image

    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 480 (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.

  9. 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?!
