Pandas for Peace

Another week, another 4-5 hours down the tubes. But what I came up with is a level above my normal stuff.  Here I sketched out a panda hippie with some very '60s era lettering and color scheme.  May have gone a bit overboard with the halftoning, but I think it fits. Surprisingly it is only 6 colors- white, two greens, yellow, and two pink tones.  If you like it, VOTE HERE.

Another shirt derby entry

This one flies against almost 150 derbies of rules and bans. But it's still funny. Back a few years ago, opened its doors and derbies. There were no rules- anything went. I didn't enter a derby until 3, but if I did, this is what I would have done.

Votes appreciated, before it's rejected.

Two shirts on current derby

Hi folks. Haven't updated the blog, mostly because I don't think people are looking at it anymore. But in case you do come back, I have two shirts up for votes- one is a silly slogan shirt, and the other is an ode to the classic came Dig Dug.  I like the latter a bit more because I had to draw it, but the former is clever.

Please vote if you got them!

03/09 Solar Party

This is a sketch originally meant as a design for an earth day daily, but it never got done. When the shirt derby contest came around, I totally forgot about this concept idea, and was too busy to get something done anyway. Oh well.  Hopefully I will be able to finish this for either a future daily idea or possibly replace earth with some other planet (like pluto) to submit on the anniversary of the planet in question's discovery. The word Amish was not part of the concept, and was something I had already written on the paper.  Note- on the design, I had Pluto being in time out in the corner while the rest of the planets ate cake! Bad Pluto!

03/08 Little crab character

This is a concept for a helmet crab. Didn't know where it was going, but I thought it was cute. It is really fun when you are in a class, and doodle something in the margins. I decided to post this since it was one of my more special sketches.  Dunno if I could do anything shirty with it, but I scanned it just in case.

03/07 Random Elements

Sketching to see what will come about, this was for the derby about books.  I was trying to design a bunch of small elements to make a tic tac toe/chess game of classic drama books versus monster horror villains books IE- to kill a mockingbird, dracula, portrait of dorian gray, moby dick, scarlet letter, turning of the screw, scarlet pimpernell, catcher in the rye...

03/06 Colored monkey

It's a monkey theme!  Just can't get away from drawing those. This is my attempt to do a colored design for livetracing color in an attempt to make a more realistic chimp/squirrel monkey. As you can see, I was planning on putting a hat on him, but never got that far. This is part of a concept of a vertical line of monkeys on a rope, with a happy shark waiting underneath.


03/05 Catching up on MSCE- bad monkey!

Okay, I'm going to TRY to catch up on MSCE, even though I am approximately 2 months behind!  So I will be posting a bunch of sketches today in an attempt to get viewership back up and get some useful comments.  Here's something I drew at around that time while in a meeting.  People were senselessly arguing about petty stuff, so I drew a monkey.  And the caption came naturally. Enjoy!

05/04 Spring showers

Here's another woot shirt entry. On cranberry since I like the color contrast between the blue drops and the shirt color. Vote if you got 'em! I need all I can get!
