Autumn Re-vamp


Here's the portal of my re-designed and re-vamped website.

For those of you who knew the old one, I think you'll agree that this one gives a better impression of who and what Alison Day Designs is and does.

Why not have a look and let me know what do you think?

Black Gold



Black Gold for # inktober

Marmite—you either "love it or hate it" which generally has a lot to do with whether you ate it as a child.

As a Brit, I am one of the former and it never gets old watching the ensuing facial expression of a Marmite virgin as they naiively propel a first 'taste'—often in the form of a spoonful, into their mouths. Inevitably, trusting enquiry turns to absolute horror, often followed by prolonged spitting and near vomiting.

A by-product of the British beer industry since 1902, Marmite is a yeast extract and is very salty indeed. Other similar world products include the: Australian Vegemite, Swiss, Cenovis and German, Vitam-R.

So, if you are looking for the pleasant Marmite experience, make sure to spread it thinly on a piece of buttered toast—not shovel it in by the spoonful as though it were chocolate paste!

A-Hole ink



A-Hole ink for #inktober

This is A-Hole the cat, a cartoon that I used to draw a lot at college, especially on letters home.

The letters were filled with stories and cartoons about student life and were penned on A4, double hole, lined paper. Each time A-Hole and whatever speech bubble, feline wisdom he was sharing, appeard drawn around one of these holes, which also doubled up as his asterisk!

Poem Ink



Week ink for #inktober

Monday's child is fair of face,
Tuesday's child is full of grace;
Wednesday's child is full of woe,
Thursday's child has far to go;
Friday's child is loving and giving,
Saturday's child works hard for its living;
But the child that is born on the Sabbath day
Is bonny and blithe, and good and gay.

—Mother Goose
