Announcement   Welcome! I'm Justine, and these are the whimsical results of momentarily distracting ideas sprung from my mind while learning to fly.*

Please feel free to write with any questions or custom requests, usually we can accommodate for what you have in mind!

*"The HitchHiker's Guide to the Galaxy has this to say on the subject of flying:
There is an art, it says, or rather, a knack to flying. The knack lies in learning how to throw yourself at the ground and miss.

The first part is easy.
Clearly, it is this second part, the missing, which presents the difficulties.

One problem is that you have to miss the ground accidentally. It's no good deliberately intending to miss the ground because you won't. You have to have your attention suddenly distracted by something else when you're halfway there, so that you are no longer thinking about falling, or about the ground, or about how much it's going to hurt if you fail to miss it.

If, however, you are lucky enough to have your attention momentarily distracted at the crucial moment..."

I love it. It's exactly what I needed. It seems to be good sturdy material that won't easily ripe. I take my kids to the library all the time so this will definitely get used all the time.

About

Many Inspirations

A scientific illustrator and designer by day, I needed an outlet for creativity that was a little more on the random side.

Inspired by a range of interests varying from geeky to quirky, behind every hand-crafted, quality product is someone who shares an appreciation with you for the fandom.* I hope these ideas will bring a smile to your day.

*Like Doctor Who. Especially Doctor Who.
