Black Cats Painting Finished!

Tuesday, August 25th, 2009

It took me way longer than it should have, but here it is:


I started the painting for the Black Cats t-shirt in the end of May I think, but was distracted with weddings and moving and stuff. I am pretty happy with it. I wish the expressions on our faces were happier or something. In the photos we didn’t look as serious. Oh well, now it’s on to the next project. Which may or may not be a painting. I still haven’t decided whether or not I will make X-mas cards this year.

Painting Progress

Tuesday, June 16th, 2009

It has been a crazy month or so. I got married, found an apartment, began moving, and took on a freelance project, all while maintaining my capoeira training and obsessive workout regimen. While it has all been very exciting, I have found that, during all this, I have had very little time to work on my current painting- The Black Cats t-shirt models. I started this in mid-May, and here is all I’ve done so far:


I am liking how its coming out, which is a good thing. When I don’t like how a painting is looking, then I don’t have  fun working on it. When I am not having fun, then it is extremely difficult to stay motivated.  As it is, my painting endurance is lagging these days. That means, even when I have the time, I can only sit and paint for about an hour before getting distracted and/or mentally drained. The part of my brain responsible for attention span needs exercise just like the rest of my body, and it hasn’t been getting it. Having so many things going on at once is sort of an excuse not to be focused. I secretly love having an excuse not to focus, and I find it difficult to fight this urge. I’ve been telling myself that once I am in my new  apartment, I will be able to get back into this painting. It is all about momentum. Eventually, I hope I reach a point where I don’t want to wash my brushes after 3 strokes of paint have been applied. I bought a new Bob-o-pedic bed, so maybe I’ll start getting better sleep. I hear sleep is good for helping you concentrate and stuff.

New Design!- Black Cats

Sunday, April 19th, 2009

I’m proud to announce that we have a new design: Black Cats. Regularly it will sell for $21.99, but you can get it for the special introductory price of $16.99- for the rest of April!



This design was inspired by an episode of The Most Extreme I saw on Animal Planet once, about the most extreme cat killers. It turns out the house cat was at the top of the list, beating out all of the big cats. And it wasn’t even close! The house cat hunts over 1,000 different species of animal, whereas it’s nearest competitor the leopard hunts only 90! And house cats do it mostly for fun! I figured it would be fun to design a shirt where a little house cat was pushing around one of its big cousins. Cat lovers, this one’s for you.
