Guess what? I made some new shirts for my Zazzle store last night.
Check them out and let me know what you think. Here is a brief description of each as they came into my head:
Another in an apparently LONG line of ‘My Other T-Shirt’ shirts. I couldn’t find anything exactly the same, but only mildly different already on the nets, so we’ll see if I have blatantly ripped off someone else when the DMCA notice lands in my inbox.
My other T-Shirt was at the dry-cleaners on Alderaan… so yeah.
I get a LOT of help desk tickets daily. Approximately 2/3 (ish) of them are so vague, i have to wonder if these people even know what the real issue is. I’ve wanted to start answering all emails and phone calls with a paraphrase from Star Trek: Please State The Nature of your IT EMERGENCY (because they are ALL emergencies, right?) now i have a t-shirt that says it for me!
ROBOTS! we love robots here at the Assorted Robot Meat Company! obv. So, this is a new-old design. Was first posted back in like 1978…. or later probably.
A couple more one-offs, because t-shirts get boring sometimes. You need a hoodie and a mug of coffee on a cold day in Seattle to do the deep thinking required to under stand the #NSA…
The last thing is just a self-indulgent crap-shoot. Like MC Front’s glasses, I don’t actually expect anyone to BUY this, but just knowing that i can put it up for sale makes me feel good about myself:
A couple of days ago I posted this from my sketchbook. Something I started a while ago and wanted to come back to. Well, I did the other night. Still a work in progress, and my hands were kind of shakey trying to do perfect circles… But still, the inking is going pretty good i think.
From a few months ago i think. Keep finding pages in my books that are drawn on…
Another page from my sketch book. Had completely forgotten about this one. I love it and want to finish it. Scanner is not working today, so have to make due with the phone cam.
Whats interesting, while trying to get a good picture of it, i tried various setting on my camera. one of those was negative:
Then i put it through the GIMP to try and define the lines better. Want to get a decent vector off of it, but didn’t try to hard. But, while I was messing around, i made it a bit too blue:
Pretty cool though huh? I am going to try and clean it up a little more and make it look like awesome robot blueprints.
Some not-really-random pages from my sketchbook.
Just checked the mail, and my shirt order from CafePress came in. I’m very excited. Of all the screend printed and airbrushed art shirts i’ve had over the years, i’ve never had one with one of my own designs on it.
I think they came out pretty good. The ‘rolling robot’ design needs some work. ‘Robot’s Balloons’ looks awesome though.
And they came out much clearer and BIGGER than I thought they would!
I’m getting excited again about creatung stuff. It’s one thing to say ‘yeah, I have t-shirts for sale,’ and another entirely to be holding one and know that tomorrow you’re going to wear it!

You can tell me then there’s someone I ain’t indier than…”

Woo hoo! We made it to the double digits the other day. 17 people read something on my blog last Saturday. Incredible isn’t it? Most days we don’t get more than 4 or 5 views, and a LOT of days we get ZERO. What’s really cool though is that some of these came from search engines, or other sites. I’m not going to ruin it by breaking down how many spam comments I got, or anything like that. Mostly because they were few and far between, and askimet(sp?) caught em. Also, if people chose to spam you, you must be doing something right, they want to get in on the ground floor.
What am I going to do with this new-found fame and glamor? Probably follow it up with some more t-shirt designs that I’ve been working on, like ‘Robot’s Balloons’. Also, I updated the Tags on my designs to try and make them easier to find, but when I searched all that came up was a mug – hehehe… wow. BUT, if you put “Assorted Robot Meat” into the Google-izer, I’m the first thing that pops up, so that’s very cool. Soon my devoted followers, soon there will be more shirt stuff.
Get Ready, here it comes!
