Happy Optimistmas.

“You made this? I thought it was from a fancy shop.”
That was a good thing to hear when I handed over a handmade card.

Here’s a plan for the survival of humanity:

  • make solidly good handmade things
  • get the things into the hands of people
  • get people to understand that these are solidly good handmade things, not part of some never-ending industrial chain of knock-off designs and poor printing methods, dead and wrapped in plastic
  • rejoice as more people more often choose more better-er solidly good handmade things.

Well, it might work. Fingers crossed for 2016, for all of us.

PS: have a look at all our awesome Applied Comics Etc comics projects from 2015, too
