shirt.woot Derby Entry

Here’s my entry in this week’s shirt.woot Derby. The theme is “Lyrics Illustrated.” I submitted a design inspired by “Brass Monkey.”

You can vote on it here, which would make you one of a very select group. It’s doing about as well as my entries usually do — currently in 45th place with a mere 71 votes.

This was my entry in last week’s shirt.woot Derby. The theme was “Line Art.”

It takes a special kind of masochism to enter the Derbies over and over. Who knows what the voting public is going to like? Not me, obviously, as this design finished way back in 81st place with only 66 votes.

Ded Bugs: East Coast Tour

St. Louis’s Ded Bugs are coming to the East Coast soon, and it was my pleasure to draw this poster to advertise their arrival. It’s an homage to Iron Maiden’s “Trooper” art, as you might notice.

Savage Sounds of the Woot Podcast

There’s a collection of the best (or, actually, “least terrible”) woot podcast jingles available for download in the woot blog. To serve as virtual album cover art, I scrawled the doodle below.

woot! Replacement Calendar Art

At the end of last year, woot.com sold their traditional grab-bag of “crappy” calendars. All this year — assuming I don’t get hit by a bus — I’ll be drawing replacement art that woot users can download and print to paste over the pictures in the calendars they bought. Here are the first three.

NY METRO Illustration: OneWeekJob

I illustrated an article in the NY METRO paper about Sean Aiken of OneWeekJob.com. It looked like this:

shirt.woot Design: Try Me

I did the original drawing that became today’s shirt.woot offering. The shirt looks like this:

Try Me

In case you’re interested in this sort of thing, here’s what the version I submitted looked like:

Try Me

My very first sketch just said “Try Me,” but as I worked on it I came to decide “Try Me, Turkey” was funnier. As you can see, Woot’s St. Louis staff disagreed with me and changed it back. They also chose a different font and color for the words, and eliminated one of my juicy golden-brown turkey-body colors. Every color means another pass through the screening machine (or something), so I can understand why they wanted to do that.
