New Bucket Hats at Redbubble

Redbubble have been adding some really fun products to their range this year and the latest one is bucket hats, just in time for the last few weeks of summer.

They let artists know in advance so we can get our designs ready for launch and I was happily surprised to see they picked my Fried Egg as the featured design! I never feel like I’m on trend but I guess sometimes your old work comes back around.

While I was checking which designs worked on hats, I was highly amused to see this! Who doesn’t want to wear a happy smiling hat? I might have to get one myself.

If you love a bucket hat, I have about 100 of my characters available to buy in my Redbubble shop. They’re one size only but you can choose from 5 colours and they cost around £20 with very affordable -and fast! – shipping worldwide. Send me a photo if you buy one as I would love to see.
