We find ourselves in interesting times. A coronavirus pandemic has changed our lives. The worlds environment has started to recover some of the damage we have done to it. We can’t revert to kind and continue as we did before.
We have a real opportunity to do things differently. I hope world governments will see the opportunities from this very dark period of time.
Individually, we should use some of this time to simply enjoy being you. We are all unique… except Davie and Harry. They are twins🤔. Seriously, take the time to be you. You are awesome.
The days are long but the years are short. Shorten your days by enjoying your life.
I had a thought. I know, very worrying. How many illustrations of my wee Wummin are there? I’ve add some pics here but not all. Not bad for 1 guy in lesss than 20 months of business.
The picture of the wee old boy holding the large pen and ink cartoon… is yer man himself and the art was in the gallery of modern art Glasgow. Not to shabby for a guy not working as an artist.
I am sad to say that a huge part of our lives has passed away on Wednesday morning. Oor Bob was a rescue dog and became one of us 15 years ago. Bob was the most awesome of wee dogs. Over the years we have had many fun times. He was loved by everyone who met him. Even the tall folk that he would bark at.
It is hard to believe that he won’t be here in our lives. Many of Our illustrations include Bob and many more future illustrations will have him in pride of place.
Wee man, we will all miss you. Thanks for all the great times. From the very first day we met you. A frail wee guy with kennel cough. Scared of the big world. It didn’t take long for you to find your place in the family. Loved by all.
With my wee one man company now over a year old. Built on the ashes of a redundancy at the age of 50. I am very proud to look back and see what I have achieved over that time. From a standing start with only an idea to produce art that would make people smile, laugh, reminisce or a mix of all 3. I think I’ve done ” No bad” as they say in Scotland.
I now have over a hundred designs for prints and greetings cards. I have established my base in Glasgow’s Merchant city craft fair ( every weekend ) I’ve built my website http://www.OorPatts.com as well as building the brand ‘ I love Us’ and many others.
It has been a rollercoaster of a journey and has brought many interesting and awesome people into my life. I can see why big companies need so many different departments to make their businesses work. Most days for me are like spinning plates. Everything from the initial image idea, to production, the sale of the finished product, finding new outlets and everything else that completes the circle.
The most important person in http://www.OorPatts.com journey is… Mrs Patt . Without the support this beautiful person has given me, There would be no OorPatts. Thank you Mrs Patt.
Like everyone else…I am looking forward to Christmas. It has been a pleasure to produce some great products to help you celebrate Christmas. My Christmas cards are ideal to send to the people you love, as are our many prints.
If you find yourself in Glasgow at the weekend. Then why not pop down to the Merchant city craft fair. Here you can meet the artist and buy the products in person.
