Piggie Parodies is myself, and my little herd of five fuzzy cavies who use me as a slave to give them a never ending supply of hay, veggies and treats. Originally from Scotland, i moved to Norway years ago where i settled and slowly got more into design than DJing which was my main job for many years.
My name is Alan, i am middle aged and I am self taught in Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign…and for the last decade or so i have worked freelance for advertising agencies, bands and pubs/clubs covering many aspects of design in the city of Trondheim, Norway. Piggie Parodies was started just for fun really when i saw Pandora sniffing the air and i instantly thought she looked like the shark on the Jaws cover… so i thought PAWS and that was my first one. I designed and put it on Society6 and it is the most popular one of my designs there. now, i just photograph them when i can and if i see a funny or cute pose, i will try to find a concept that works with that pose then go to work. I have done a few Piggie Parodies now, some i will rework but many have not worked and been resigned to the bin.
