I totally recall Total Recall 2012. Turned some more of my recreated art into products, including the lovely Chocolate Boba Tea ad, the Tokonoma logo, and a version of the First Bank of New Asia logo with more 3D bevels and lens flares and such. And the UFB 7 news channel logo.

Available here. What can I say? I give good wife.

For Sale: New Firefly Fan Silliness: SF Cargo

Posted in Design, Physical Object with tags , , , , , , , , on September 30, 2015 by Staff Writer

I present to you the ballistic missile submarine Red October my original creation: the SF Cargo company!

SF Cargo Greenai

What, did you think there was only one shipping company in the Verse?

Look carefully, and you will notice many subtle jabs at TG Freight, who, I believe are entirely too chummy with the HATED ALLIANCE. And some silly jokes. I propose that a few Independent pilots, using war surplus craft, created SF Cargo to earn a living after the war. I am drawing a deliberate parallel with Flying Tiger Line.

Here are the current products for sale:

I’m not terribly fond of the horizontal logo, but if you needed a rectangular sticker rather than a square one, here it is.

USA, 1942: The War at Home

Posted in Physical Object with tags , , , , , , on September 28, 2015 by Staff Writer

Went through some of my grandfather’s personal effects and documents this evening. He and his brothers operated a gas station / mechanic’s from around 1932-1942. As you can see from the photo below, when he / they got drafted in 42, they had to sell it. I imagine there were a lot of signs like this at that time.

So, he was an auto mechanic from 32-42, then an aircraft mechanic from 42-45 (23rd FG, China), then an auto mechanic with NACA near DC for most of 45, then when he became a civilian, he went right back to being an automobile mechanic. After the war he married and raised two children.
