Snape's Ridiculorum – Give Nonsense a Good Home

Atlanta, Georgia

Top shop for gifts.

A buyer bought a gift from this shop and gave it a 5-star review!

Announcement    Snape's Ridiculorum is a wildlife preserve for Nonsense. What you find here will remind you of childhood – of made-up games with unexpected rules, of the twists of logic that only a three-year old can arrive at, of the juxtaposition of play and Grown-Up Things. Nonsense is an idea that smiles and reminds us that hopping is fun, that the smallest puddle of water is entertainment, and that questions are excellent tools for enlightenment. Nonsense reminds us that there are miniature wonders to be discovered all around us, if we just remember to squat down, stay still and quiet, and watch carefully. Then explode with delight when we find it.

I create prints, greeting cards, and misinformational diagrams. My work is whimsical, simple, and colorful. It reflects the child and the adult in me. It nourishes me.

I work in a sketchbook, and periodically scan the more entertaining Nonsense into my computer. I scan in the drawings because, often, too much life is lost when I redraw or even trace the original. Sort of like documenting my children's childhoods rather than living it with them.

I add digital color or watercolors. My printer is an Epson 1400, with excellent color consistency and richness. I use Epson watercolor paper, which is heavy, bright, and slightly textured. I spray-fix the print to protect the inks.

I hope you enjoy my work and find something that you like. Nonsense always needs a good home!

take care

Hello hello hello!
Come in, come in, come in!
(I love the Whether Man...)

Anyhow. I dislike putting Nonsense aside, but I've found if I'm too casual about the Business Bits, they start to Bite. So here we go ...

Contact me if you'd prefer alternative payment methods. I'm considering them.

Nothing will be prepared or shipped until payment confirmation is made. But I'll happily follow up in case it slipped your mind.

All cards and prints are shipped flat in plastic sleeves (sorry, but I don't know how else to ensure against the Evils of Unexpected Moisture and Even Flooding). I also use cardboard to keep thing flat and Do Not Bendable.

I generally ship out on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and will contact you about when your item has shipped.
