T-Shirt Designs
Benny's Taxicab Service by Groovy-Gecko
Will Drop Pants For Food by Groovy-Gecko
Owl and Birds by Groovy-Gecko
Feed Me! by Groovy-Gecko
I'm Real Too by Groovy-Gecko
Designs that can be sold on Redbubble as T-shirts, pillow cases, phone covers, stickers and other things. :)
I'll charge a small fee on here, as you'll be buying the T-shirt via Redbubble anyway.

I will make designs of the following:
- Anyone or anything from or based on film, TV, literature, comics and cartoons.
- A starting point for an idea
- Something you've always wanted to see on a T-Shirt.
- Illustration and design.
- Fantasy/horror/cartoon stuff.
- Tattoo-style stuff.

I will NOT accept:
- OCs or FCs of any kind. I want to be able to sell these to others as well as yourself.
- Outrageously detailed scenes, such as Mr X and Mrs Y dressed as Batman and Robin playing poker in a barn…i.e., the sort of thing you'd as for in a trade or request. This is going on a T-shirt, after all.
- Nothing too rude/offensive/obscene.
- Films film, TV, literature, comics and cartoons that I actually don't like…I do have my limits but luckily, they're aren't that many.

Hi, the name's Groovy Gecko! Or Emily, if you prefer. Basically, my life revolves around art and making stuff. I'm studying animation at the moment but I'm a crafter and illustrator at heart.

Groovy Gecko in a nutshell:
Animation, art, films, food (particularly chocolate, cake and puddings), Disney, reptiles, books, the theatre, tea, puppets, Muppets, fantasy and fairy tales, horror/ghost stories, Tim Burton, vintage things, crochet, music, pirates, T-shirts, carnivorous plants, the Solar System, sewing, the Victorians...
Interests
My friend went to the D23 Disney Expo in 2013 and she told me about how they were working on Inside Out. So I wasn't surprised by all the trailers coming out. And (I blame Frozen), all the 5-star reviews from critics and 'wow this is awesome' reactions from various friends put me off a bit. BUT as I'm going to the D23 Expo this year and there's a main talk on Inside Out, I went with my family to see it on Friday night.

I must say it was much better than I thought! :D It's a clever concept executed in such an imaginative way. One of my initial concerns was that the main emotions would be two-dimensional in their personalities. I was very wrong! They were all quite endearing! I even warmed to Sadness (eventually: she's like that co-worker you don't want to talk to! :XD:) Without a doubt, my favourite character is Anger. :D Followed closely by the adorable and lovely Bing Bong! :love: Furthermore, Riley is one of the most believable 11-year-olds I've ever seen in fiction. 

The story is a fun, creative and sometimes tearjerking journey. And (thanks essay on Campbell's theory) the growth of Joy's character arc was…well a Joy. And a personal bonus for me: no love interests!! :la: Also, watch the very end for some laugh-out-loud moments.

I probably wouldn't call this my favourite Pixar film (INCREDIBLES!!) but I can certainly see why it's considered (one of) Pixar's best. I must agree on that aspect.

Groovy gives it a 9. :D
And Groovy gives the short Lava a 7. It's cute but not my favourite Pixar short (that would be Presto!).

Hi there! First of all, thanks for watching! :D

I had a massive clear out of my gallery recently. I felt a lot of my old stuff  was holding me back as an artist so I got rid of most of it. (I'm 21, and most of that art was done when I was about 16/17…:P) I plan to revisit these (particularly my Muppets Batman series) some point in the future. Though maybe not too near in the future: I'm due to be in my final year at university in September and will need to focus on my work then.

I'm glad she enjoyed my work! :D

If you notice at the beginning, Robin is wearing the same suit the Genie was wearing at the end of Aladdin.
