Working Hard On Hardly Working.
More than a year has passed since my last post. And i have done shamefully little work since then. Having said that i have done SOME work, or rather re-work.
Presented for your consideration;
Imagine a world where cats- those revered animals, so full of eldritch power and a smouldering contempt for humanity– had managed to design, fabricate and utilise power armour that allowed them to fly through space… Now imagine that concept, but on a shirt.
This one is a re-design of a shirt i posted years and years ago, i thought it would be fun to put a cat in a mech suit and elude to a squadron of be-meched cat soldiers, so in the re-design i decided to flesh out the team with three cats in mech suits, flying through space with their little faces, and kitty paws.
Also on the re-work schedule was Rome and Carthage football team designs.
i originally did the first designs for these i think about four years ago, the basic idea was “what if the Punic Wars weren’t just a horrendous loss of life, but a high school football match, between long time rivals from opposite schools”.
i was a pretty big fan of Super Metroid back in the day, haven’t played any games in the series since it was on SNES, but i will always remeber the awesome feeling of being a champion bounty hunter, being the best most competent bad-ass in the galaxy. The big reveal that Samus Aran was a woman was something i will always remember. i never got around to using the Justin Bailey cheat, and to this day i am not entirely convinced it is a real thing.
This little design is available for purchase as a sticker, and multiple other formats right here.
Oh, and some new work in the form of the cursed blue shell from the Mario Brothers games. Personally i haven’t played a Mario Bros. game for a long time, but others have, and do, and are, and i go where the money is, baby.
This started out as a mashup of the blue shell design and the Detroit Red Wings logo. Again, not being a hue Mario fan i though the Red Shell was the one everyone feared, however in conversations (most of which i tuned out of, because they were about Mario Bros.) i came across the common complaint that the blue shell was actually the more contemptible shell.
And some other new work in progress; a series of limited colour palette designs focusing on primary colours and strong black and white contrast the first of which is a blue samurai.
So that’s i from me, for now…
Thanks for not interrupting.
