This week I interviewed a wonderful business @moridchalk !
- Tell me a little about yourself.
“I’m Frankee! I’m 27 and I’m in the UK. I’m a 90s kid who’s always wanting to feel nostalgic. I also love horror, Doctor Who, Halloween, true crime and animals. “
2. What made you start Morbidchalk?
” I started Morbid Chalk in 2017 with chalkboards to begin with. I’ve always loved art, especially drawing cartoons. The main reason I started it is because I couldn’t find anything I liked that had my favourite films/shows on it. My taste is a mixture of horror, nerd, 90s cartoons and cute things.
So I had to fill the gap in the market myself haha! I then moved onto plant pots end of 2017. Again for the same reason. I’d bought a plant and wanted a spooky pot for it. On Etsy at the time the only hand painted pots you could get were just not my style. So I decided to paint them myself! Because who doesn’t want a ghost holding a pumpkin on a plant pot?!”
3. What is the most popular item in your store? Why do you think it’s so popular?
“Oooh okay so this is a toss up between my Aliens pot or Homer in a Bush pot (Both Simpsons designs) They’re both my best selling designs and have been constantly ordered since I first made them in 2020. I always credit the Homer pot as to what gave me the push to what Morbid Chalk is now. That first Simpsons collection I did is when I really saw that this could actually become my job. And it has! “
4. What 3 cartoon characters best describe you and why?
” I’d say Buttercup from Powerpuff Girls, Grim from Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy and Angelica Pickles from Rugrats. Because I’m a grumpy, creepy, morbid and sassy little creature. “
5. Do you have any exciting news or events that you would like to share?
” I have my first ever stall this year which is super exciting and very scary. It’s at East Midlands Comic Con in Nottingham! So if anyone is attending please come say hi! “
