Polite babies are going to be nice to you (T-shirts and stuff!)

Thursday, December 13th, 2012



Promises made, promises kept.


I worked with graphic artist/cartoonist Jean-Louis Lejeune, who took my ideas about nice babies (being ridiculously good) and created a series of illustrations of these various ideas that can fit on t-shirts and fabrics and accessories. hidden people calls them “Polite Babies”.


These are babies who are very polite – to one another, their parents, themselves. They are comic, fun.


I put together a short video telling what they are like, how to get them, how to make your very own t-shirts just as you want (or want to give to a young ‘un you know). That’s it. For yourself, a kid, a friend, relatives….


To order (and view) if you are in Europe (and Asia) you can go here:
EUROPE!


If you live somewhere in the Americas (and Asia?) you can go here:
AMERICAS!

Happy Polite Baby Days.

Polite Babies STILL coming for Christmas 2012!

Thursday, November 29th, 2012

A while back I told about how I had been working with a number of designers on designs for a line of fabrics (T-shirts stuff, really).


The series for this Christmas is nearly ready and they are called the “Polite Babies” series.


Here’s a few more samples you can expect











Where you can order them coming soon, real soon. — Thanks! V+

Polite Babies coming for Christmas

Tuesday, October 2nd, 2012

I have been working with a number of designers on a bunch of designs for a line of t-shirts and other fabrics as well as accessories that includes cups, bags, hats, etc. I’m releasing them through my hidden people creative story outfit that’s evolving to wherever it feels it needs to go. I hurriedly launched this last December, Just To Get It Out, since the concept had been on a major back burner for years.


Then I had to get more serious and professional about it with some long-term vision to boot. So now, after much work, I have four launches scheduled this year and into 2013 of different designs. The first batch is nearly ready and they are called the “Polite Babies” series.


It is basically for kids, but no one is stopping anyone from putting them on more adult-sized stuff.


Here’s a few (a taster if you will).











I’ll let you know when they are released (sometime next month it says here on my ambitious schedule.)

2011 begins — some plans & thoughts of things to come

Wednesday, January 5th, 2011

FIRST OF ALL: I have a short video greetings for 2011 if you want to have a look click here.


NOW.
For those paying attention, all five of you, after serializing Brussegem, a snug hell during the last limping weeks of 2010, I’m looking at this as my publishing schedule for 2011:


THE BOY IN THE SANDWICH (children’s fiction)
HOW TO FIND YOURSELF (illustrated version)
Stories on Stuff (Dot Hippo – kid’s textiles)
THE NICE GUY (first novel)
SLICES (novel on business)
INTIMATE DIALOGUES (short stories)
Stories on Stuff (Polite babies)
THE NEXT GENIUS (Novel on artist)
THE BLUE SPOT IN MY HEAD (Part One in fictionalized trilogy)
Stories on Stuff (3 & 4 – kid’s for Christmas)


“The Boy in the Sandwich” will be presented for the world to lick and look at very shortly. Will be putting some free chapters online on a weekly basis, along with audio clips from the novel.


The comes the new, illustrated version of “How to Find Yourself (or a reasonable facsimile)”.
Maybe a couple of chapters of that, too (again), and me reading some chapters. Also free and weekly.


These two books were supposed to see the light of day toward the end of last year, but things got reshuffled and re-organized. The first “How to” book had to be fully reformatted and laid-out due to errors I wrote about somewhere in this blog during the last year. We can’t have that again, so took time to reorganize the publishing work flow. I thought each book would take three months from finished manuscript to launch, but there’s far too much to do properly; properly takes time. So now I’m aiming at a four month launch of each book, from final period to book available.


And adjust accordingly if that still doesn’t supply enough space & time. See whether I actually keep to the publishing schedule this year….


As I have had occasion to mention: I have well over a decade of experience in international publishing in one of the top three media companies. But it is one thing being part of a system, and being the whole system oneself. So refinement in my hidden people venture was called for. To Get It Right. And no doubt this, like life, will be an on-going process.


Beyond books, next up is a final setting up with audio book distributors as I have three audio books just about done and wanting life. Same with my Stories on Stuff T-shirts and textiles and whatnot spin-offs (with “Boy in the Sandwich” and “How to” coming fully born with illustrations…).


Meanwhile, I’m thinking up stories on t-shirts and for kid’s nightwear. Then I want to make a video, or write a play, or write a 300 word story. So that’s what I do: Whatever Comes Up Next.
