Hitching a Ride

Friday, October 9th, 2009

So it took a week, but I finished that Squirrel T-shirt design:


I am pretty happy with the way it came out. I like the little feet. I am still slow drawing in CS4 Illustrator, but I am getting better. I think I might start doing the initial drawings the old fashioned way on paper, and then scanning them in to trace. Anyway, I hope you all like the design. I am going to enter this design at Uneetee, and I will post here again when it is available for voting.

Barrel of Donkeys: New Uneetee Submission

Tuesday, July 28th, 2009

It took many weeks, but Uneetee has finally put up my Barrel of Donkeys design for voting. Check it out.


I don’t usually wear yellow shirts, but I thought the yellow sort of worked with this design. It goes with the banana, because bananas are also yellow. If you like it, go vote. If not, then you can at least help me out by not voting for anyone else’s designs! Ha, just kidding. I actually voted for some other designs, too. I like neat t-shirts, whether or not I happen to have made them myself. Although, I do sorta like the ones I make.

The Jesus Turtle- New Uneetee Submission

Thursday, April 30th, 2009

I have submitted a new design at which is now up for voting: The Jesus Turtle


This design was not inspired by the bible, but by a super-fast lizard. The basilisk, also know as the Jesus Lizard, can run across the surface of a pond on its hind legs for up to almost 5 feet. I thought it would be funny if a turtle could do the same thing, as they can neither stand on their hind legs, nor run even close to fast enough to avoid breaking the surface tension of water. If you happen to like this design, feel free to vote for it, but I recommend going to regardless, as they have some great t-shirt designs there.

New Uneetee Submission

Wednesday, December 10th, 2008

My latest t-shirt design, entitled Raptors: Then and Now, has been approved by and entered into their Design Contest. The winner will receive $1000 and have their design printed and sold. Most of the designs submitted are pretty elaborate, and in the past I’ve submitted graphics with multiple colors in order to appeal to the tastes of site’s voting members. This time, however, I wanted to see how my subtle, single-color style would fare against the more complicated and colorful entrees. The good news is that, if it doesn’t win, I can print it myself as-is without having to make any modifications to fit the Donkeyshines style. Check it out, and vote for it if you like it. You’ll need to register with Uneetee to vote, but its a pretty quick and painless process. They have a lot of fun designs, and I think it’s worth being member.


I chose to draw a non-specific bird of prey so I could be free to stylize it any way I wanted. In the case of the velociraptor, I decided to go with the depiction we’re familiar with in pop culture. It is now known that they were likely covered with feathers and were only the size of modern-day turkeys. The real velociraptor was probably not nearly as menacing as they are in the movies, and it would not be as ironic to see one carried off by a lil’ birdie. Although I’d be pretty impressed to see an eagle taking down a wild turkey.

My Latest Uneetee Submission

Sunday, June 29th, 2008

Donkeyshines is a pretty specific brand and style. When I want to venture outside of that style, I often submit a design to Uneetee or Threadless to see if I can win their weekly contests. Currently, I have a design up for voting at Uneetee:


There are about two weeks left in the voting, so if you happen to like this design, you can go and vote for it. So far I’ve gotten pretty good feedback about it. A lot of people don’t care for the choice of the light blue shirt, but I actually like it. Partially for the obvious effect of giving the animals a “water” background, but also, I think a lighter color makes the design more subtle. Also, I just don’t have any light-colored shirts, and I figure the summer is a good time to make one.
