★★ Giveaway!!! ★★

Posted in gifts by nicolarowlands on September 2, 2010

In honour of my second solo exhibitionA selection of slightly frightening drawings‘ which has gotten off to a great start I wanted to give something back as a thank you… and what better way to introduce my scarily super new stickers and pocket mirrors than a giveaway! Up for grabs are a super shiny Monsters of Love pocket mirror and awesome clear gloss sticker (these look pretty nice stuck on your Mac, bike, guitar…) set to one lucky winner. To enter, tell me your biggest fear! You’ve got a few different ways of doing it:

1. On twitter: ‘@nicolarowlands might give me a sticker and mirror if I tell her I’m scared of ——‘

2. Stick your scary statement as a comment on my facebook wall

3. Leave your frightful footnote as a comment on this blogpost

I will choose a winner on Friday September 10th

I’m pretty scared of waves and large groups of people. You?

Fashion and music, you know?

Posted in Fashion, Illustration, My drawings, My work for my clients, World wide web by nicolarowlands on August 5, 2010

A friend I went to High School with in Chicago now runs a fashion and music blog called Stic Of The Week.  She writes about who’s who and what’s what in the world of festivals and being cool and wearing wayfarers and stuff.  I did her a little blog header redesign, trying to keep it festival-y and music-y.

She is using the little birdy as their twitter avatar and I’ve also just done her some business cards for her to hand out at Lollapalooza. I’ll post photos of the cards soon.
