W. C. Fields on TeePublic

In honor of the birthday of The Great Man Himself (this past Friday), I’ve put my Fields-inspired designs up on TeePublic:

From left to right: Orange crate stencil from “It’s a Gift” with phony distressing and wood grain, New Old Lompoc House door sign from “The Bank Dick,” and the orange crate stencil ‘like new’ with no grain or distressing.

“My grandfather’s last words, just before they sprung the trap, were: “You can’t cheat an honest man, never give a sucker an even break, or smarten up a chump.”

I’m a let you finish, but this would have been the greatest crossover of all time – Of all time!

Oh, yes, I went there. Probably not the first, but I thought it was funny, so I did it anyway. Which also explains a lot of what I say and do.

“Ooooh, Jem!” Available in two slightly different versions for lighter and darker garments:

GI Jem for Lighter Clothes

Someone asked me to make some Star Helix shirts with small logos over the left breast, like a badge. So I did:

Star Helix Shield, Small

Star Helix Star, Small

I’m working on a design, on the backburner for now, but making progress.

I think you’ll like it. It’s … exciting.

… And truly outrageous.

It is Written on the Brick Cylinders of Kadatheron…

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , on January 26, 2016 by Staff Writer

“…It is written on the brick cylinders of Kadatheron that the beings of Ib were in hue as green as the lake and the mists that rise above it; that they had bulging eyes, pouting, flabby lips, and curious ears, and were without voice. It is also written that they descended one night from the moon in a mist; they and the vast, still lake and grey stone city Ib. However this may be, it is certain that they worshipped a sea-green stone idol chiselled in the likeness of Bokrug, the great water-lizard; before which they danced horribly when the moon was gibbous. And it is written in the papyrus of Ilarnek, that they one day discovered fire, and thereafter kindled flames on many ceremonial occasions. But not much is written of these beings, because they lived in very ancient times, and man is young, and knows little of the very ancient living things…”


 

Working on an HPL … replica paper ‘thing.’ Found some great inspiration online, at a certain museum. Here is the source of the above:

The Doom that Came to Sarnath, by H. P. Lovecraft, 1920.

Noodle Bar Shirts!

Posted in Design, Physical Object with tags , , , , , , on January 23, 2016 by Staff Writer

After … ‘mixed results’ … from a few other BR projects, I’m very excited to reveal my latest and greatest tribute to a certain cinematic universe – the Noodle Bar ‘medallion’ logo shirts:

Pretty pleased with how these came out. A lot of man-hours were spent making them. Drawing the Katakana by hand, and trying to echo a preexisting English font style was tricky. Lots of time was spent tweaking the colors and gradients and stroke thicknesses, etc. Here is a closer look at the logos themselves:

And there is a significance to each piece of text on there. It’s not just random gibberish, each word or phrase has relevance to the subject matter. I am slightly more partial to the blue version, for what that’s worth.

“Embrace the Midnight Blue.”

“Red November.”

Join us at America’s favorite Noodle Bar – where two is always plenty!
