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.

First sales!!

Woke up this morning to find that in less than 24 hours from starting up, I had sold 2 shirts already! / After kicking some ideas around for the last couple of years, I wasn’t sure if there’d be much interest in what I was doing, but it feels great to know that others out there appreciate it. It’s a great motivator so thank you very much whoever you guys are. / I’m working…
