Over the past year, I’ve turned into somewhat of a cycling enthusiast – I now commute the 14 miles each way to my ‘day job’ and try to get out for a long run at the weekends whenever possible. It was only a matter of time before I created some quirky iPhone case designs that might appeal to fellow cyclists, and was inspired to create the artwork for these two vintage puncture repair kits.

If you’ve seen my previous post, you’ll know that my quirky artworks were recently spotted by the owner of FutureFunk in the Netherlands, and I was invited to become their first Featured Artist. What’s most exciting for me, is that my case designs are now not only available in Uncommon Deflector and Capsule form for iPhones and iPods via Redbubble, but they can also now be bought for a much wider range of smartphones – the BlackBerry Bold and Curve, Samsung Galaxy S and SII and HTC Desire. With FutureFunk also offering my artwork on their own iPhone cases too, I was curious to compare their product with the Uncommon Deflector that I was already familiar with. Continue reading
**UPDATED** I have a hard time making decisions at the best of times, so when it came to ordering one of my quirky iPhone cases for myself, it took me a while to figure out exactly which one to choose! Of course, given that I’ll be showing it off to as many people as I can, and wanted to take some promotional photographs of it, the pressure was on, but I think I made the right decision.
Some people might think it’s too early, but when it comes to Christmas I reckon you can never be too prepared! Not only have I just added a new Apple T-shirts page to this blog (you saw it in the menu bar above, right?), but I’ve also created some new Apple-inspired slogan T-shirts that I think would make the perfect gift. Whether you really are buying your loved one an iPhone or an iPad this year or not, you could have fun with one of these tees. Oh, and they’re not just for Christmas either… if you check them out you’ll see there’s a birthday option too
I don’t drink, and as someone who normally lacks self-confidence I’ve always been somewhat reserved when it comes to social gatherings, and even family get-togethers can be quite intimidating. So it will come as no surprise that my Dad’s wedding was shaping up to be a nerve-wracking experience, especially as I was his Best Man and had to stand up and make a speech. Continue reading
It won’t be available until the Autumn, but yesterday Apple previewed some exciting new features in the forthcoming iOS update that I for one can’t wait to get loaded onto my iPhone 4. There are apparently over 200 new features in iOS5 which will no doubt enhance productivity and efficiency, but for me there are a couple of changes that really will drastically improve the user experience on all iOS devices. Continue reading
With iOS 4.3 due for imminent public release, I will soon be able to enjoy enhanced productivity and functionality in my iPhone 4. As before, this latest iOS update will be free from Apple, but one of the most useful new features in the operating system won’t be available unless I dip into my wallet. Frankly, I’m not happy about that….
“You can have any colour you like, as long as it’s black.” Henry Ford would have been proud, except of course that’s not actually what Mr Jobs said – he promised black and white. Seems reasonable enough. Previous iPhone models had been available in both shades of mono, and lets not forget the “perfect harmony” that Stevie Wonder and Paul McCartney sang about – wherever there’s ebony, ivory shouldn’t be too far away.
Not everything in life is black and white however, but when it comes to the iPhone 4, I think it most definitely is – we will never see a white iPhone 4. There you are, in black and white. Or perhaps not. Although there are no official explanations as far as I can tell for the latest delay until next Spring (!), previously Apple had stated that the white iPhone was being delayed as it was “more challenging to manufacture than we originally expected”. So what’s up? Continue reading
