24th July is Tequila Day!
Any excuse for a Margarita! 😉
Today is National Tequila Day! That’s right, there’s an entire day dedicated to celebrating the Mexican spirit, tequila. It first started in the USA and Mexico but in recent years the celebration has also been adopted in the UK due to the rising popularity of the drink.
So what better day to tell you more about the tequila range and how it came to be! Plus for today only, I will be popping a free badge in with every order, read on for details.
Carlos, as I named him, started off as a doodle.
This was around the time I was getting to grips with Adobe Illustrator, the software I now use for colouring all my illustrations and preparing for printing. Carlos the Cactus was the first illustration I did in Illustrator to practice and get used to the various functions.
My first draft of Carlos
Carlos stayed hidden away on the laptop for few months whilst I focused on other ranges. When I came across him again, I didn't know what to do with a happy cactus. I started to play around with fiesta ideas and somewhere along the way I thought of tequila! Like most of my ideas, it came back to a food and drink theme.
I had fun coming up with the quote and it reminded me of how much I like Margaritas! (responsibly of course 😉).
I thought it would make a great greeting card for a birthday, celebration or just because someone likes tequila.
Carlos is also available as an A4 print. When I was designing this I kept thinking about my friends little bar area she has, which is a great use of space under her stairs. She has bar / cocktail themed posters which inspired me to create a print for anyone else who has a bar area. Also great for a kitchen or wherever you like to entertain and drink your tequila!
(Please note the A4 print comes unframed).
Carlos is also available as a badge and especially for Tequila Day I will be popping this badge in with every order placed today!*

So grab the salt, cut some limes, and raise your glass, Arriba! 🌵
Please drink responsibly 🍸😊
