This was another personal project of mine – a sideline business I launched in the beginning of 2015 and later sold on. As an avid and life long ‘colouring-inner’ myself, I was really lucky at the time to spot the emerging adult colouring trend early (although You Biscuit! isn’t just for adults by any means!) and subsequently went about bringing my idea to life!
The A1 sized poster celebrates my country of birth, South Africa, and I illustrated a variety of animals, plants, objects, local products and other symbols of SA to feature in it. The name is derived from colloquial slang and is a term of endearment or affection ♥
The whole process of coming up with a product idea, working on the details, branding it, launching the business, marketing it online, selling, fulfilling orders and seeing it through right to the end was an experience that taught me so much. I’ve learned a lot since then too and in the near future will be launching Rumah, a collaboration with a dear childhood friend – watch this space!
