A selection of slightly frightening drawings

I’m so so excited to let you know I’ve got my second exhibition! From the 29th of August until 28th November at the Art of Tea in Didsbury.  You are invited to the celebration launch night on the 29th August.  If you’ve not yet visited the Art of Tea you’re in for a real treat… stop by from 7:30pm for a few beers, some delicious pizza and sweet music by Laurence Boot.  I’ll be there and so will my selection of brand-new-never-before-seen- merchandise.  Oh, and some drawings by me on the walls 🙂

Go to the Art of Tea blog for more info.  Really really hope to see you there ♥  Lots of love x x

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.

I have a new product for sale in my shop.  It is a pack of three postcards.  Three different designs packaged up in a cello bag.  Perfect for posting or framing as a set.  You can also purchase single cards in my etsy shop, if it’s just the one card you’re after… but make sure you let me know which design you would like to receive when placing your order.  Happy sailing 🙂

Posted in Graphic Design, Illustration, Places where my stuff is sold, Things to buy by nicolarowlands on July 21, 2010

So I have been designing a lot of goods in the textile department lately and thought I would do a little feature on them all in case anybody didn’t get a chance to see them.  You can purchase any of these products over on Envelop; all of the designs are printed on 100% 230gr/m² cotton and machine washable up to 80°C without fading.  The proceeds go to helping me pay my bills and ultimately being able to create more cool stuff for you to buy so it’s definitely a worthwhile spend ♥

★ Giving away great stuff to great (facebook) people ★

Posted in gifts, Graphic Design, Illustration, shops, Things to buy by nicolarowlands on July 14, 2010

So it’s been a while since I’ve given away some cool stuff to my really nice followers so in celebration of my new facebook presence I have decided to hold a mini giveaway which will be for facebook people only (oh the wonders of social networking…)  To win a pack of five deliciously beautiful mini-cards, an original Nicola Rowlands Ms Spanner promo postcard and sticker, all you have to do is:

1. If you aren’t already familiar with the stuff I sell, take a quick look round my shop and decide what item of merchandise/design you love and want to see more of (I am bringing out some more products in the form of stickers, tea towels, pocket mirrors)

2.  Post the name of the product on my facebook page.  (You will have to join the facebook page first to make a comment.)

3. To double your chances of winning post a hyperlink to the item in the shop as your facebook status update, followed by @Nicola Rowlands illustration and design (tagging in status updates only seems to work if you are using google chrome as your browser so if you are using safari/firefox/opera just put the link in your status and msg me to let me know it’s there…)

I will pick a winner sometime next week.  Spread the word, great things to be won!!! Thanks guys ♥
