Types of Animals

Learn your alphabet and animals with Twenty-Six Types of Animals by Jeremy Pettis. Each print contains an expressive font, animal image, and animal related information. Why didn't they have these when I was a kid?

On a side note...it's Monday. I'm feeling the Monday blues and continue to make a blahhh noise while sticking my tongue out. Maybe it's the big pimple on my chin, maybe it's because I had to drive over an hour to work EARLY this morning (long distance love due to jobs), or maybe it's because my co-worker screams my name on the other side of the office and expects ME to get up...every...single...time. Sorry guys for the angst ridden morning...just had to vent. Here's to acne cream, cool jobs close to the ones you love, and nicer people...oh and Starbucks Chai Tea. How are you beating the Monday blues?

You are too funny Diana! Sorry you have the Monday blues. I think I'm there a little with you. (I have to take a break this week). If nothing else, know how much we all enjoy reading your blog...how it brings a smile to our faces, often laughter to our hearts, and always inspirational.

please sir said...

Thanks guys so much - you make me smile all the time! Why can't you all be my co-workers? Wouldn't we have fun?!

mary said...

These are very cool - I love how each font goes perfectly with the animal!

I'm sorry to hear about your Monday. I know how that feels! Today I'm luckily working from home, but it's so dreary and dark here that I'm sort of in a funk this morning myself.

Nothing that more coffee and catching up on my blog reading can't cure!

naphtali said...

the kangaroo is my favorite. it makes me smile. monday blues? coffee, coffee, coffee - and a little blogging. (or escaping into the fact that the upcoming weekend is closer now, than it was an hour ago.) good luck today, and thanks for the inspiration!

mandco said...

That is sooo cute!! What a clever idea!

Exercise usually beats the Monday blues...but do I ever get up before work to run around the neigbourhood?! Not likely ;-) A cupcake on the way to work usually does it for me ;-)

I find it helps to pretend it's Friday. And to avoid everyone...

Victoria said...

Fun typography prints!

Sorry about your Monday Blah-Blues, I have them too, but mine are from a messy house, a pile of paperwork,
and unfinished projects that need to get finished... As for your co-worker... earplugs!

Wayfaring Wanderer said...

Those prints are too cute, love them!

I've been blahing too, my bf asked me on chat how I was doing this morning, my response.....BLAH....

Is it 5 yet?

blazedanielle said...

Hey, those are pretty neat! :) They remind me of trying to be creative in my typograpy class! :)

Karen said...

That is awesome -- I love these prints. I'm digging the Emu one :)

I also have the Monday blahs, complete with a headache and a scrunched up grouchy face. Not pretty.

And I totally get you on the co-worker shouting your name thing...been there; been annoyed. I keep headphones on and listen to music..."oops, sorry...didn't hear you!" (...sometimes there isn't any music on...shh)

dolphin and quail types are <3

yells at you to get up?!! OMG! that's happened to me a long time ago. i freaked out and totally called them out on it. then that person got a reprimand. ugh. you shouldn't be treated like that girl. people who yell at others to do something are power trippin' and i don't let them get away with it.

anyway, i hope the rest of your week is easier.

Dianna said...

omg, that co-worker deserves a good punch in the head. hope your day gets better. i'm all about the chai tea too! happy yucky monday!

Stephanie Ryan said...

Hell no! I got the blues...real bad. I sympathize with your long drive. Just to add to the misery of Monday, did you hear about Starbucks closing a lot of their stores. AH! Well, I just spent my morning trying to draw a bow. Not a cute bow, a sophisticated bow, not a fat bow, or a skinny bow, not a bow with too many loops, or a flat looking bow. A perfect bow! Oiy....somebody save me.

Jules said...

great prints - very creative! i'm right there with you on this monday morning...i have more of the monday-anxiety-ADD-can't focus on anything for more than 2 minutes - blues...must make a to-do list and stick to it!

design for mankind. said...

AWWW, THE MONDAY BLUES. :(

And yes, Starbucks Chai Tea. :) Think caffeinated thoughts. ;)

Love to you.

Krissy said...

Bummer Diana! You and I are two peas in a pod I think.... Maybe you should fake your husband getting locked out of the house so you can go home for a bit!?? (I've done this before)

A-M said...

Just scream back! A-M xx

Fifi Flowers said...

Hilarious! Don't forget the windex for acne!
I have the Monday blues too... yesterday was so relaxing on the beach... and now I have to paint CHRISTMAS/HOLIDAY cards... hard to get in the mood... maybe some holiday music and hot cocoa... LOL
Love these graphics!

aimee said...

wow, that sounds like a rotten start to the week. needy co-workers - they're the worst!

love the lettering/font styles here! and hope your day is improving...

pve design said...

Oh these are so much fun! I just delivered an "S" for a client to give as a gift for a newborn. I will post about letters as art! This would be a great project for an art teacher to give to students.

i'm with you! after being out for a week on vacation it seemed like everyone was waiting for me at the door with needs - ugh! oh well, relaxation easy come easy go.

hang in there, and, maybe start to pretend you don't hear your co-worker because you're in deep concentration? love starbucks green tea lattes - yum.

xo, cindy

katiecrackernuts said...

They're clever aren't they? People are just so clever. I think I'll just go and sink into my second coffee for the day and feel very un-clever. Sighh.

jess gonacha said...

GOODNESS, I love these! How creative!

SimplyGrove said...

So Fun!!

Kirsty said...

Those animal prints are so gorgeous.

jae said...

These graphics are really clever. How fun to have a wall full of them.

Agree, Starbuck's chai tea...a definite mood improver!

vana chupp said...

quite funny i might add! I had a pretty crappy day myself. Sorry your co-worker won't "behave"! Hope you're having a better one tomorrow.

paisleystclaire said...

Those alphabets are so cute - I love the Quail one.

BTW, I never know what day it is so I just get random blues. Usually its the days with both kids at home and piles of washing to do.

Leanne said...

I'm a new reader and found you via Little Byrd's blog. I wanted to comment on these awesome font prints but noticed a frustrating end to the entry. I second "cool jobs close to the ones you love."
