Tweet Cred

This morning at “job-job” I jumped into a battle. Our graphic designer was checking Pantones against our latest promo giveaway. I’ll ruin the surprise. He was designing a shirt. The shirt was made to pimp our twitter feed. It’s beautifully designed, but marketing totally missed the boat! The shirt features are everyday logo with the words “follow us” running along the bottom.
Lame toast.

The thing that first attracted me to the twitter culture was the funny fan art birds that show up on people’s websites. I love that this logo lends itself to wide artist interpretation.

I thrill when I find a unique Twitter Bird.
“No, no, no, no, no!” I exclaimed. “The whole fun of Twitter is designing a twitter bird in a new style!” If you’re going to design a shirt do it right. We’re a children’s animation company for goodness sakes!! Who better to design a bit of fan art in our iconic style?
Anyway, they asked me to prove it, I showed them an array of fun cute tweeting birdies.

Then they backed me into a corner. “IF it’s sooooooooo cool why don’t you have one you’ve done!? Huh?! Huh!?” Damn it! Trapped. In the end our logo stayed and I was labeled “hypocrite”.
Way to shove the thought back into the box, boys.

Sad thing is — I’ve been meaning to get a little twitter bird done in She Sure is Sketchy style for quite some time. This is so I have a comeback next time. Take that! boys!!! Haha.
Here’s some quick birdie doodles. Which is your favorite?
I’ll finish up a couple for you to use too, maybe you’re more open minded than my marketing team.
One can hope 😉

Pointer Sisters kinda night🔥 We’ve been ignoring this sweet potato, but he will not be ignored. 🌱☀️🧡🌈
#lifelessons #bloomnomatterwhat Five years ago, I walked into a cozy Brooklyn bar and met the sweetest boy a girl could ever hope to meet. Tonight he made us the sweetest cake to celebrate.❤️ ❤️ I wish today was a Bill Murray kind of Groundhog Day, I’d be in Mexico toasting these love birds. 😭😭😭 #happyanniversary to @happilyeveralvarez & @alvar529 AND happy one year anniversary of New Sister Day to me & @prillie_shakazuzu. We’re so lucky Ashton got us Heather. 😘 High Tea B-Day was at least 1000% better than these pics. 😍💛😭⭐️🍰
#andstillbirthdayweekrageson #letshearitfortheboy #👋☕️ Matt’s Grandfather, passed away peacefully at 93 this week. I am glad for the chance I had to know him. He was great. Matt insanely invited me to a four-generation Father’s Day brunch at his parent’s place when we’d been dating a month and a half. Grandpa Volpe’s first question? He wanted to know my intentions. Here he is at our wedding last year. 💛 He was a true original & he will be so missed. I believe. ❄️✨🎄🎅🏻
#firstsnow #chefwifelife We’ve arrived at my parent’s, where Christmas Spirit is alive & well. What a blessing this ‘Eve has been.🎄✨❄️ #merrychristmas #christmastree #ohchristmastree
