Calling all plant lovers!

As a fun side project, our very own Lorie Ransom designed and built A Tree Garden. She’s far too humble to brag about it, so I’m here to do that for her!

Lorie is an avid gardener. Her initial inspiration was to have a plant list that she could reference so she knew what she planted and where. Instead of just making a list in a journal like most people would do, Lorie decided to challenge herself by integrating the newest WordPress features like the WP REST API.

If you like plants, craft projects, birds and bugs, you’ll love A Tree Garden. Check it out!


Our gift to the last minute gifter

Print-at-home holiday bottle tags!

‘Tis the season for holiday parties, family gatherings and all manner of gift exchanges. A bottle of liquor or wine makes a great last minute present, but it’s always seemed like the gift giver’s equivalent of buying a souvenir from the airport giftshop…

Not anymore.

Now you can turn your boring old bottle into a creative and classy gift with our (patent pending) Tiny Whale Boozy Bottle Tags. Each tag was handcrafted by our team of Adobe Illustrator artisans and comes with a booze-specific holiday drink recipe, rigorously tested and perfected by our (hic) in house team of (hic) cocktail tasters.

Just download and print your tag of choice, cut along the dotted lines, throw on your ugliest sweater, and you’re ready to party in style.

No matter what you’re drinking, we’ve got a tag for you.

Happy Holidays and a rowdy New Year, from your friends at Tiny Whale.

Dog vs. Cat

A while ago, we posted about our own Lorie Ransom and the launch of her web comic, The Daily Drawing. Over a year later she’s still at it! A couple of my favorites are her cat and dog anatomy illustrations. I love them so much, we have the cat version on a pillow. If you want one too (and lots of other stuff) head over here and check out her store!



While Lorie was busy drawing her Applejack Manhattan cocktail (inspired by the website They Draw and Cook), I decided to illustrate a recipe for a Korean rice bowl called bibimbap. I’m not actually Korean, but I am a huge fan of Korean food. This is one of my favorite things to make at home. It’s fun to make all the little toppings and let guests assemble their own. Today is the Lunar New Year, which is observed in Korea as one of the most significant Korean holidays. Much of the day is spent eating, which is something we can get on board with. Happy Lunar New Year!


Skateistan Charity Auction

Lorie, Emi and Chris were invited by Stoke Strategy to design skate boards for an auction benefitting international non-profit Skateistan. Skateistan incentivizes boys and girls in Afghanistan to further their education through skateboarding. Overall the auction was a success, raising just under 10K for the charity. Thanks to Stoke Strategy for putting on such an awesome event!
