I have a real passion for creating simple design that have high impact and to be able to immortalise my icons who have been such an inspiration on my own personal life.
I have been working on designs which I have named Deadbrities. I am currently drawing up artwork that I intend to use as t-shirt designs. Each design is a cartoon drawing of a well-known icon that has passed away. Although I initially intend to start with t-shirt designs I would like to branch out by putting these designs on different types of clothing and accessories like hats, dresses and bags for example and eventually even make plush dolls and figurines. The reason I am doing this is because I wish to set up my own business by selling Deadbrities as a brand. I would also like to give some of the proceeds that I make from Deadbrities to the Anthony Nolan charity which is close to my heart.
I'm chasing to give 10% of the profits I make to Anthony Nolan charity because of a number of reasons. One being my sister in law has recently received life saving treatment from this charity. Anthony Nolan were amazing throughout the treatment and supported her through all of her dark days. I have to think where we'd be right now if it was not for them.
Also in recent times I lost a close friend to leukaemia. Which as i'm sure you can image was a very hard time for the loved ones he left behind.
Promoting the Deadbrities will be an amazing opportunity for me to do my part and help this great cause!
I would love to have you support me on this project, as I truly believe that by having such a small amount of investment, I can get my business off the ground which will enable me to start living my dreams.
The money will go on:
I would be eternally thankful for your support! :)
