Buttonman

One of my favourite things to do for shows is make new buttons. Most mystifying among this new batch is "I done a murder", which should be said in a west country accent. Conservative in my expectations, I only made six of them.



The innocent pig is of course my searing comment on Swine Flu.

Ohhhh my goodness. Why can't I buy these online? Is there any chance they'll be at SDCC this year?

If you don't save me one of the unicorn buttons I'll cry!! oh and the bear one is cool too...and the pixies ones and the jelly one and the rock one...ah they are all great. bah!

Lizz said...

ugh and I just noticed the beard one and my friend will love the wales one. Ok so I'm buying ALL of these on saturday.

K said...

Augh! Want! Particularly the worm, Rock O'Clock (which I prefer as a badge, oddly) and Desmond. Oh, Des. Jelly is also good.

(My fabric-covered desk barrier thing at work is decorated with a fine variety of 1-inch badges but since I have been to no webcomics events, no SGR ones - though I do have a fine Shelley sticker on display.)

Jelly Time!!!!

Yes! I couldn't have it on a tshirt or a bag, but it exists in button form. Is there any possible way to get one of these to the US, for money dollars? (Yes, I acknowledge that this is fairly ridiculous, but my desire for one of these is pretty high.)

Well, this sucks. Not only do I have to leave London to spend the weekend with my in-laws, but I have to spend the weekend with my in-laws not spending my money on these extremely fancy badges. In London. Weep, wail etc.

On a more positive note, these are amazing. Everybody has won, and all must have prizes (except me).

I'll have the badges at SPX and Thought Bubble too. I partly make them for people who know nothing about Scary Go Round, they're a good cheap impulse buy for passers-by and if you sell a few dozen it can pay for your dinners and drinks.

They're a bit fiddly to sell on the site but I will bear your requests in mind.

Sweet badges, my top 3 goes as follows BEARD, SWINE, WALES IS OK, it was a hard choice as lovejoy was very very close to making it into the top tweeeee!

John A said...

Inspector, I am pretty sure I can sort you out with some badges now I am no longer barred from the post office (following a heated debate over the non-provision of pre-moistened sponges and pens-on-a-chain).

Inspector Marmalade said...

oh my wooord! yes please that would be fantastic! how many pieces of slighty manhandled silver would you like me to grace your palm with?

John A said...

A shilling. I will put it on your tab.

I shall plunder my slummy hordes with haste good sir!
