Go wild and get jiggy this Valentine's Day

I'm delighted to announce the launch of two new products in time for Valentine's Day. The first is a pair of mugs featuring two of my popular emoji drawings: one starring a pair of lovebirds and the other a dung beetle (it takes all sorts to make a world!).
