Competition frenzy #2

The good folk at Inked apparently loved my last submission - Bettie Trooper. However, it was pulled from their competition because of the possible copyright infringement of using a stormtrooper helmet in the image. I'm from a generation that grew up with Star Wars (the good ones, not the pants ones), and its imagery has become an essential part of our popular culture, hence it entering into a lot of my art.

Anyhoo, not being easily deterred, I decided to polish up another old piece and pop it into the comp ... Hell's Accordion Angel. Like the last one, their displayed images are a pixelly travesty, but if you have the time please hit the 5th star :)

Hey, big seller ...

Just received this week's BubbleWrap from the good folk at Red Bubble. Apparently I'm one of their biggest sellers - yay me!

Can't waste any time with this blog nonsense, I'm going to sail my yacht to my private island in the Caribbean.

Toodle pip!

Competition frenzy

I've just submitted a redux of my Bettie Trooper illo to the inked Tshirt competition. Unfortunately the quality of the image, as shown on their site, is so low it makes it look like a pixelly soup. Nonetheless, if you get a chance click on the 5th yellowy star please:)

Glutton for punishment

The nasty pasties at Threadless have decided that Tiki Time was not worthy of being squirted onto their precious fabric. Being a glutton for punishment, I have decided to submit it to the designbyhuman competition. I added a background, changed some elements and put a glowing green halftone effect around our 2 woody lovers.

Kozyndan print

Just framed a signed Uprisings print from my new chums Kozue and Dan Kitchens of Kozyndan. This bunny-ladened gem gives a healthy nod to the genius of Hokusai.

Whilst browsing in their shop I decided to pick up a couple of these bamboo fans to help me stave off the burning heat of this Australian summer.

Time to vote for Tiki Time

The good, and stylish folk, at Threadless have accepted my aforementioned Tiki Time submission for their competition. Shameless pleading time ... My Submission please vote for it.
