A Snapshot of History

This is a rare treat for all of you nonpaying fans of Small Consolation. Once in a while, for promotional purposes, you will get an extra freebie. I really like this one. This is only political if you take it that way. All I am attempting to do here is to capture truth and humor. This is the year 2020 in a nutshell. This is soon to be available on t-shirts and other products in Bird Smirk, my CafePress shop. Watch for it!

Essential Services SuperHeroes!


   I made this design, and these products, to honor all of the essential services workers throughout the world. They are truly Super Heroes! This is not just for Doctors. This is for the Nurse, the Police Officer, the Firefighter, the Sanitation Worker, the Postal Worker, the Fast Food Clerk, the Grocery Worker, the Toilet Paper Maker (apparently), the Delivery Person, the Trucker, and the Sandwich Artist. ALL ESSENTIAL SERVICE WORKERS… May God bless you all!

   Show your appreciation by giving this badge of honor to your special essential service superhero, or buy something for yourself to show your Gratitude and support. 

   But wait! There’s more! Not only do you make somebody’s day, you will be proactively contributing to the demise of the coronavirus! Fifty percent of my profits is earmarked for coronavirus research at the World Health Organization. I also pledge to ask CafePress to contribute fifty percent of their profit made from this design. 

   At the moment, only shirts are available. That will change quickly for soon I will offer mugs, mousepads, cards, water bottles, grocery bags, and badges!

   Click on the “Essential Services Superheroes” image above to show your support and gratitude. Thanks!!!

Flint River Collection

This is the finished Flint River Collection B+W design. We can’t use Flint River Outfitters because that is a real store in Georgia. Apparently, they too, have a Flint River.

I made, and used, my own type style within this design. I call it “Bob sans serif”.

Very soon, this design will be made available on T-shirts, mugs, calendars, and whatever else CafePress offers. Order now to avoid the rush!

Bird Smirk Business Card

On a daily basis, my CafePress shop, “Bird Smirk Creations”, is about one in a million things available on the internet. And that might be a very generous assessment. What are the odds that somebody is going to come across my site? That’s right…about one in a million. Therefore, I have designed a physical counterpart to the digital Bird Smirk. The Bird Smirk business card.

I am thinking about purchasing 500 business card magnets and plastering them all over town. I hope it is not illegal. My theory is that people will take them and stick them on their refrigerator. On the other hand, if they don’t take them, they will serve as advertising… like a tiny, tiny billboard! Let’s see what happens, shall we?

Bird Smirk Custom Creations

   Very recently, Melissa e-mails me and says, “Hey Bob. Could you put the Poison-dart Frog design on a mug for me?” I said, “Okay”, and then she buys it and is happy. Be like Melissa. Melissa is happy.

   I will put any design of mine onto any CafePress product you would like! It’s not that hard. Just ask! I have a lot of designs and CafePress has a lot of products. Mix and match!
