Welcome! My name’s Alex and I’m a on-and-off artist, amateur designer (read: dabbler) and general procrastinator.
I work in and around the Design, Advertising and Print industries, and pursue personal art projects whenever I can scrape together the time.
I started this bubblesite to finally act upon some ideas I’ve been kicking around for years. Most of my stuff will be simple vector work, but we’ll see how we go!
I am creating a range t-shirts (as much for myself as well as anyone else out there like me) which are based on a concept I had of ‘Discreet Geek’ wear.
I was frustrated at not being able to find much in the way of t-shirts that displayed the graphics/iconography of my treasured 80’s heroes in a way that I would actually want to wear.
Most are a homage to 80’s cartoons/pop culture and other retro icons from days of old. I wanted to create something that was subtle, a little bit sleek and minimalist, and something that would attract a knowing nod and a smile from fellow children of the 80’s.
I’ll be adding other designs with a general retro/pop-culture spin also.
Hope you like my stuff! I will be adding some personal artwork and photography on my other profile ‘Alexmacca’ if you want to check that out too.
