Beer, Revolution and My Attempt at Designing Pretty Things

Next time, I’m going to start posting all the new Christmas designs. But in the meantime, I’ve managed to make a few designs that don’t fit a holiday.

“BEER ME”

This one started as silly wordplay. I thought, “Everyone says ‘beer me’ when asking for a beer, so what if I made a shirt where the beer is ‘me’?” A beer version of a person (albeit a funny-faced, cartoon person) resulted:

VIVE LA REVOLUTION!

This one is full of equally nerdy wordplay (or possibly more nerdy). The weapon-wielding planets are undergoing a revolution… around the sun, of course:

Science Nerd Solar System Tee Shirt

Here it is on a shirt:

PRETTY THINGS

I’ve done some experimenting with patterns and prettier designs. I’ve never done this before, but I think some of them have turned out nicely. It’s fun to try something different. Here are a few of them:

iPhone Peppermint Pattern Design

This one is a peppermint swirl iPhone 5 case. I’ve always had a fascination with peppermints; my grandma used to eat them all the time, so I associate their smell with her house and my childhood.

Here it is on a pendant. The bright red stands out really well:

I took a ladybug design I already had and redesigned it to make this iPhone pattern:

Ladybug Love Insect Pattern Design

I also made some products with ants crawling all over them, but I’m not sure that fits the “pretty” category.

Next up: some funny Christmas stuff. I’ve been looking forward to making elves and gingerbread men since I started this adventure last Valentine’s Day.

You can see these designs and the Christmas ones I’ve already put up for sale on the stores at Zazzle and CafePress right now. Thanks for stopping by!
