Grande Dame Stickers for Facebook!


World Domination is happening! Introducing Grande Dame animated stickers for Facebook! The universe heard my call and sent all the biggies at once! When it rains it pours – Ha! I custom designed this sticker pack especially for them. It’s called Kaleidoscope. There are a cast of fun characters to help you express yourself in my signature trippy color palette. Above is Jazz Cat. Not pictured – Lamby, Owl Babies, Milly Mandrill, Bouncy B’day Alien, Sowwy Rooster, Chick and Spidey. I designed this pack as a more all an ages/ kid friendly collection, as I have a more rock and roll one dropping on there later in the year. Massive thanx again to Amelia Gregory for setting me on this life changing path! And to Facebook & the FB sticker team for being so cool. Here’s a little promo vid I made. So click the pic or here and start stickin!

PS – Google, Adobe, Epson- let’s talk! ­čÖé

Grande Dame Psychedelic Animated Emojis!

Several months back, a friend suggested I make Facebook Stickers. I didn’t even know what they were, so I ignored her – sorry Amelia! Ha! But she kept suggesting it to me. I finally figured out what they were – illustrated emojis you can post for Facebook comments rather than words. I looked into it and found out – it’s impossible to make THOSE particular stickers. You have to be asked by Facebook, they don’t let just any sticker maker upload their work. I was disappointed, but sniffed around and found this great app called imoji. It lets artists upload their own art, as well as, allows other people share it. So I uploaded tons! At the mo – it works best in messenger. All the emoji stickers are fully animated in that platform. There are other sharing options available too – instagram, text, what’s app etc… BUT in the other platforms, it grabs a still from the animation and posts that, rather than a moving loop like it does in messenger. Hopefully soon it will work in the Facebook comment section and soon I will dominate the world with my psychedelic, animated emoji stickers! Still have tons more to upload! Stop sending boring smiley faces! Be cool and share a veiny skull, bouncy clown, alien & more! Click here to get the free app! Once installed type Grande Dame into the search and all my trippy emojis will appear like magic! Enjoy! Happy sharing! More soon oxo GD

New Video for Alabama 3 by ME!!! WOO!

bama2
Ladies and Gentleman! I am very pleased┬áto share my new work with you! I directed the latest video for Alabama 3’s new single – (I’ll Never Be) Satisfied. I kinda can’t believe I just wrote that! But yes – it’s true! I had a 3 year break from videos after The Trip, and honestly wasn’t sure when or if I would ever do another one – but was over the moon when they got in contact and plucked me out of video retirement! Of course it is psychedelic and a bit rude – natch – that’s the way I roll! Ha! It’s a killer track and was honestly a labour of love! I am super proud of it and still pinching myself that I got to work with my heros! Woo! Big thanx to Steve Finnerty from A3 for making it happen! And ladypat for the special fx help! Please share the link and as always – ENJOY! oxo gd
