Happy New Year!

I hope everyone had fun holiday times n’ stuff. I thought now would be a good time to thank everyone for supporting Donkeyshines in 2008, and to let you know that we plan on doing our damnedest to keep you clothed in wacky shirts in 2009. We have some interesting surprises coming up, including a new design just in time for Valentine’s Day. One thing to look for this year is product photos, as well as a new style of painting for the product images. For years I’ve been using watercolor for pretty much everything, but recently I decided to switch over to acrylics. This medium offers more control, which will come in handy when painting the design details on the shirt. Here’s the current work in progress:


I wasn’t quite happy with the painting I had previously done for the Octopus Web models, so I thought that I would start with that one. What do you think so far? For the next one I do, I will post the project in various stages so you can see the new process.
