Space Invaders was launched way back in 1978 and was one of the first Arcade games created. It is one of the earliest shooting games and the aim is to defeat waves of aliens with a laser cannon to earn as many points as possible. It created such a craze that following its release it casued a shortage of 100-yen coins in Japan, grossed US$2 billion in quarters by 1982 the year i was born ! ! Above is a pair of cuff links that i was commissioned to make with the Space invader theme. You just never know what i will be up to next which is what i love about my work ;0)
I received a lovely package of fresh inspiration this morning ;0) A big thank you to Amy and her Mum for doing some amazing button shopping , lots of new fresh funky designs to follow. Its just like opening a fresh palette of paints for the first time ;0)
Well it is wet and windy outside but i am working away warm in the button cave that is my studio! I play with buttons all day long and they are starting to take over ! I have just had a look around and it seems i may have a button problem. I have manage to collect quite a collection of everyday things with buttons on ! .. I have a button Pillow ! Button Stationary , Button cups, lots of button tins !. I was even given presents of Button Socks and a Button umbrella from great friends who know me to well ! !
