Alyce - AKA Doodlepeople (though, I guess strictly speaking, more a doodleperson, singular)
Hi, I'm Alyce! I'm the creator and owner behind Doodlepeople. I'm a one person show so feel free to take a moment to be slightly impressed (if you aren't, that's okay too, there are people running businesses who also have kids and that's just magical! Though, that will also be me very soon.)
Drawing and creating is the only thing I've never stopped doing; because I picked up a pen when I was two and I haven't put it down for over twenty years. I love making badges, patches, art and accessories with feminist, body positive, social justice, LGBTQIA+, mental health and chronic/invisible illness themes and I like to think that the wearable activism I produce does, or can, make at least a small difference in the world; even if I wish people didn't feel they needed to buy a badge that says "don't fucking touch me"...
I make everything in my store myself. My badges are all designed by me and pressed by me in house with my own two hands in my own badge machines. My patches are all screen printed, machine embroidered or hand painted by me, in house. My mugs are all sublimation printed and pressed by me, myself, in house. My bracelets are all stamped and textured by me, in house. The only things I don't make are my enamel pins! Other than that, EVERYTHING in this entire shop is made by me, by my own two hands, at DoodleHQ. <3
So remember: women are people too, black lives matter, boys can cry, all bodies are good bodies, you don't have to be anti-men to be pro-women, mental illness is real, every "me too" is too many, no human is illegal, trans rights are human rights, sex work is real work, not all disabilities are visible, war is wrong, there are more than two genders, love is love, there is no planet B, pro life is anti choice and anti choice is anti feminist, self care is not selfish, catcalls are not compliments, punks respect pronouns, bodily autonomy is non negotiable, healthy isn't one size fits all, vaccines don't cause autism; and we should support each other and lift each other up. So, do no harm - but take no shit. ❤
Oh, and, most importantly of all: you. are. enough.
