The lovable rogues at shirt.woot.com have purchased and are now selling my Navy Seals design.
I love it when that happens!
I am especially excited about this one because it sold out on its big day yesterday. Historically, I’ve always felt that my designs for Woot flopped a little bit with the wooting public, mysterious creatures that the wooters are. 🙂 BUT, this new one seems to have done pretty well, so maybe I will be able to quell the standard mad dash to The Reckoning that my wootables seem destined to make. Think I can fit one more bastardization of the word “woot” into this post? We’ll see. In any case, sold out or not, Navy Seals is still available for now by means of a super special secret ongoing sale page, and will remain so until it becomes unpopular enough to be kicked out of the wootersphere* forever and for good. Hopefully not next Monday. Anyway, here she is:
ARTIST'S NOTE: I am, in fact, aware that the animals depicted in my illustration bear a far closer resemblance to sea lions than seals. The decision to render them as such was made simply because I thought they looked better that way. Artistic license and all that. My apologies for making the world a tiny bit dumber 😛
* – Yup. I get a cookie.
So a while back an ingenious fellow on Threadless (torakamikaze, one of the alumns and a prolific blogger) suggested that it would be cool to put together a Threadless Alumni coloring book. I agreed, but failed to get my act together in time to be in it. So it goes.
Many months later I somehow managed to weasel my way into the second to last spread, which made me very happy indeed. Even more exciting is that the book has been assembled and is now available for purchase on lulu! It’s called “Adventure” and it’s way cool.
Here are some of the obligatory visuals, beginning with my page:
A routine snoop around my google analytics told me that some folks had tagged my Pterovulpine illustration over at a place called yayeveryday.com. I think it’s an image bookmarking site, which is cool. Anyway, nothing big but being a standard-issue attention whore I got a brief flutter of warm fizziness at the discovery.
