continuous solitude

So the gods at shirt.woot didn't deem this worthy of honorable mention, so I'll save it for the time being and rework it a little bit for submission later at another site. Would look great in gold foil or metallic print.

rise again at shirt.woot

This week's derby was a nice challenge for a change. One color continuous line art. For my first entry I made a phoenix. Sort of symbolic rising again, a little chinese influence. Awesome that shirt.woot decided to give this one an HM! We'll see it again in the next do-over. That makes three so far for this next one!

Shirt.woot entry - thrifty fill-up

Received an Honorable Mention for this one! Thanks, Joel of Shirt.woot. It'll be my second entry in the next "big do-over derby". The other one is the polar bear vs supermegavirus design that recieved Honorable Mention for the "miniature universes" derby.

Shirt.woot seven deadly sins design

Did a "gluttony" design for this week's shirt.woot derby. A bit more saccharine than I'm used to, but figured it couldn't hurt. Ever play "chubby bunny" in high school? It was a staple of every large gathering when I was a teen for sure.

DBH Sub for VonZipper

Got some new work I made up for Design By Humans' Von Zipper contest. It's definitely way more colorful than most of the work I do, and it's the first design i've done with gradients. It's been approoved by dbh and you can vote here Not like anyone will read this and vote for it, right? :P

Shirt.woot virus

I made a big mechanical Dr. Octopus-inspired virus for this week's shirt.woot derby. Please vote if you can! It's a little bit of a different style for me. Comments and criticism well accepted.

New Shirt.Woot derby entry

Thought I'd throw something together for this week's derby at shirt.woot. The theme is "video games through art history". I decided on a portal reference, the beloved companion cube, and drew it up in an art deco style. Seems a bit more of an architectural art deco style but I like it nonetheless. My favorite part is the angel in the center. Certainly there is room for improvement but I'm satisfied nonetheless.

New Threadless Sub - Travel Emergency

I did this design for shirt.woot's "emergency" derby last July, and it wasn't printed. Admittedly I was a little surprised it wasn't picked for an HM, either. For some reason they really haven't been liking my work lately. Anyway, I added some shading and subbed it for the Threadless Loves Travel contest. Looking at all the amazing work there already, I do realize that I have a minimal chance of winning the contest, but perhaps they'll pick it up anyhow. Here's to hoping!

Well, that didn't end so good now did it. Although 1.88 isn't an awful score, it's definitely out of the print range save another "April Fools" printing like they did this year.

new shirt.woot entry - beLIEve

This week's shirt.woot theme is "art as text". I made a design that's pretty self explanatory, with tv sets making out the word "believe". Truly, you cannot believe everything you see on tv.

A HUGE thanks to for featuring my "Paper Motions" t-shirt design this week on their website. It's up for presale at $12 now, and I know there were a few of you interested in it earlier, so here's your chance!

New DBH submission

Well, I've had this one for awhile so it's not really new, but shirt.woot has owned the rights to the design even though they'll never use it. Now it's mine again so I submitted it to Design By Humans' 10K contest. There's so much amazing artwork in it that I'm sure I don't stand a chance in winning that popularity contest, but here's to hoping they choose some other shirts to print that don't win.

Shirt.woot desserts

This week's theme at shirt.woot is desserts, so I'm pandering using death (as the grim reaper) as a model for "death by chocolate". While I was making this I had Illustrator crash on me and corrupt the file after I had done the framing out. Lame. So, I livetraced my exported .png death and proceeded to color. In some ways it looks OK still since the chocolate is melty, but otherwise I'm not entirely pleased with it. Oh well! Save, save, save.
