Trek Fan Shirt

I made up a fan shirt in time for the new Star Trek movie that came out a month ago. I ended up canning this image; or the slogan, anyway.  It just felt too insider-ish. First you had to get the reference to Shepard Fairey’s Obama Hope Poster. But even if you got that reference, unless you were a hard core trekkie, you were left scratching your head at the IDIC slogan. So, instead I went to print with this image, instead. I wanted to do a Kirk shirt as well, but I didn’t have the right one-word slogan. Yet.

The Mysterious Connection between Indy 4 and Back to the Future!

But first, here’s a look at the finished Indy 4 Fan Shirt. Indy 4 the Movie was a disappointing failure on a variety of levels, but the Indy 4 Fan Shirt looks terrific! Merry, my printer on these shirts, once again did an incredible job; and she’s great to work with. It seems I’m always on a tight deadline, I always have last minute changes; and she is always there to get me through it. Thanks Merry! And even though the movie wasn’t very good, you can still get the wallpaper version of my Indy Fan Shirt. You’ll find it…

Process

I had every intention of going to bed early tonight, but I don’t want to miss posting, particularly if I don’t have a good excuse, so I’ve been busy constructing today’s post about the process of putting together a tshirt design for one of my best friends. His birthday is coming up. Process fascinates me; I love to know how it is that people work; so here is how I work. Sometimes. Other times I work quite differently. My friend Binh mentioned a line he had heard recently; one of those bits of wisdom that gets tossed around, and he…

Short Round; but More Importantly, A Penguin

Sweet! My friend and bro-at-work, Don, has been making and painting penguins for about a year and a half or so. Everywhere he goes, he sees penguins; then he meticulously paints them, (sometimes with nothing more than a nail, well, and some paint) and shares them with the world. Here’s one he made for me out of the six-pack packaging from one of my favorite ales, Third Stone Brown, from Empyrean Ales. See, how it says Bro Tone? What a perfect Screentone tribute. Don, I’m honored. And I wasn’t going to post this at all, since I hate it, but…

First Post and an Indy Fan Shirt!

I’ve been giving a lot of thought to a website. There’s a lot of interesting stuff out there, and I’d like to share it, but doing so by email is tedious. Screentone allows me to pluck my notebook from my pocket and share it with the world. Or, at least, the select few who are in the know. The other thought behind having a website is to show what I make, and websites like myspace and facebook, which seem to do that sort of thing very well, don’t seem to be my sort of thing. So, here I am. I…
