Wouldn’t You Though?
Lou, down in Muddy Cornwall, is all over these gorgeous comic-book inspired prints — that you can personalise. Now, is there something coming up, quite soon, which might mean you’re on the lookout for neat gifts to give…?
This is so scorchingly superhero hot, its like Inferno Man on honeymoon, somewhere hot. Meet Cuddle Punch – a brand spanking new online illustration team providing personalised superhero prints.
Cuddle Punch — aka Asa and Ruth – are a comic book geek and domestic goddess living on Dartmoor with all the cliches that come with a house in the country. Before setting up their new business, Ruth was a teacher, and Asa a concept artist in computer games. As glamorous as that sounds (to geeks at least) he found himself mostly drawing variations of ‘paint tin’. When Ruth came up with a few scribbles of a drawing she wanted Asa to do for a friend’s wedding, once framed it look pretty awesome. Tons of positive feedback later (and a few more presents for friends), they’ve gone all professional and got their own online shop.
On all the designs you can change the skin tone, hair colour, clothes colour, headings, names and the text at the bottom and on a few others you can take out or add elements and on my favourite you can choose from four different types of moustache!
There are so many occasions these would be suitable for – a wedding, father’s day, birthday, christening, bar mitzvah – you name it. Got a friend who’s a personal trainer? That strongman pose would go down a treat.
They come framed and mounted in white or black wooden frames and postage is included (big tick and a gold star from me on that). They’ll post your gift anywhere you want – either to your home address or the recipient’s.
Asa and Ruth plan to add more designs as demand allows, and even have a few limited edition runs as well, so keep watching folks, this is just the beginning!
Even better, Muddy Cornwall is running a competition right now for a chance to win your very own personalised print. Get on over and enter right here. Good luck!
