Threadless (Critique): Everybody Loves Eye Scream

Monday, November 17th, 2008

This design has been sitting around on a couple of drawing pads for a while now. I finally got it finished up to a point that it’s ready for some critique. I think I may still be an image off from original goal of one submission per month. However, I still have [...]

Threadless Scoring

Friday, October 17th, 2008

So I learned today that my impression of the way Threadless submissions were scored was entirely by the public and finalized immediately after your time was up. Turns out, I’m way off. Like 83 days off. A submission can stay in the “choice” bucket forever, it seems. I was told by [...]

“Seaside” On Sale Now

Monday, October 13th, 2008

Well, Seaside didn’t win the Threadless contest, but it won the hearts of some. I really thought I was in it with the good comments, but alas, it scored slightly lower than my previous entry. That’s okay; Threadless losers beccome Zazzle winners! Hop on over to my Zazzle store to buy this [...]

Threadless: “Seaside”

Monday, October 6th, 2008

‘Sup, land lubbers? This is a shout-out to my homeys from way-back. Notorious black beards, REPRESENT!
Anyway, I finished another Threadless submission – this one entitled “Seaside.” It went through several critiques and evolved to what you see here now. The original was classy. The finished version is less anatomical design, [...]

Zune 3.0 Coming

Friday, September 12th, 2008

Mmmm…Zune 3.0. I’ve just read Jason Dunn’s (of ThoughtMedia.com) report on a recent Microsoft meeting discussing the Zune 3.0 release. I am completely sold on the Zune platform and am greatly encouraged by the up-and-coming release. Perhaps the greatest boon of them all is that the Zune team will be including us [...]

“No Bones About It” For Sale

Monday, September 8th, 2008

I used my wife’s advice and chose to create a Zazzle.com account. It didn’t take long at all and I was able to setup a front and back, long-sleeved, black t-shirt for the Threadless “No Bones About It” submission. I didn’t win on Threadless, but I can still have my designs printed should [...]

Threadless (Critique): Pirates Were the First Gangstas

Monday, September 1st, 2008

I have my August Threadless design up a little late, but I put together three sketches when I started this one, so I have two others I can flesh out. I had originally wanted to get “booty” into this somehow, but my wife said it might be too much going on. I also [...]

Twitter Updates for 2008-08-06

Wednesday, August 6th, 2008

@DinoRubble If my design scores high enough in the 7 days it has to be voted on, it will get printed. #
@HamWithCam At least it wasn’t a full-blown ninja warrior assasination attempt. Those are very disruptive to a night’s sleep! #
Bleh. PHP makes me forget what I once knew in JavaScript! #
Hurray! Bike [...]

Esquire, Magazine of the Future!

Thursday, July 31st, 2008

Dippin’ Dots are so 2000…E Ink is the future.  Esquire magazine is making a bold move to use E Ink on the cover of their October magazine.  What’s more, they snagged the rights to the deal from E Ink Corporation for a year.  That gives them megacreds towards the potential future of magazine design.  Remember [...]

No Bones About It

Wednesday, July 30th, 2008

It has been submitted! It took way to long to get the presentation worked out, and I’m less than excited about the results.  I tried to use some Flashy-goodness, but couldn’t get the file size down to the allowable limit. I am however, pretty jazzed about the final result. Sure, I could have [...]
