Epic Babysitting!

Here's my second design for the Bee & Puppycat contest. I'm quite satisfied with the result (but there's always something that can be improved).

Here's a process GIF (which apparently is pronounced 'jif').

Also, I'm rediscovering this thing called "library".

And here's a preview of the second design I'm working on:



Also, Fez is such an amazing game. Definitely in my top 10 of games.

Cartoons that don't exist yet

A new design for the 'Cartoons that don't exist yet' challenge on Threadless:

Also, today is World Student Day!

Ice Bucket - now on Teepublic

So, as I expected my ice bucket designs didn't get funded.
And since the chances of them getting printed on Threadless are small , I uploaded the best one to Teepublic (honestly, the first one wasn't that good).

It's up for sale right now, and the first two days it's selling for 14$ in stead of 20$.
Profit will go to charity (even if it will be a very small amount) .


Also, I'm really enjoying "Brothers, a Tale of Two Sons" for the moment.

Ice Bucket Challenge

So, the inevitable has happened, I have been nominated/challenged to the Ice Bucket Challenge. In case you have been living under a rock (with no wifi connection) for the past days here's what it is about: 
you get challenged to either throw a bucket of cold water with ice-cubes over your head and post a video of it on-line within 24 hours of your 'nomination' or you donate 100€ to the ALS research programme. Then you nominate four people, who in turn will have to do the same. 

I get that it's a horrible disease, and would not wish it upon anyone. And I sincerely hope the money they raise will help in defeating this illness. And I also get the fact that by doing this kind of neknomination through videos on public media, it raises awareness to a previously almost unheard of disease. But by now everyone must have heard of it, and it's kind of turning into a hype. And I do not like the fact that people are wasting water to continue this fad (according to some calculations, 20 million litres of water have been used in this campaign) when there are still people in the world who don't have access to clean drinking water. Also, to do this research, they are doing test on animals and use stem-cell transplantation (from embryo's). Not very ethical...

And one last point: I believe that charity should not be forced on people, but should come from the heart. Now that we've raised the awareness (of one of many muscle and nerve related diseases in this fallen world), let people give what they want, and how much they want.

In stead of throwing a bucket of icy water over myself, I was thinking of another way to make a video. I then thought of recording myself sitting in a chair trying not to move for at least an hour, to experience what it must be like to have ALS. But then I figured, how is that going to help those people? So in stead of wasting an hour doing nothing, I came up with another 'challenge':

Consider buying one of these two shirts I made. 
If it reaches 50 funders before the deadline, it will get printed and become available for purchase afterwards. Everyone gets a shirt out of it and I make some money. I will donate all the profit I make out of it to charity (a part to ALS research, another part to other institutions). Of course, you can always just donate the money in stead of buying this shirt. Your choice.

Promo code: SPU9DD

Promo Code: A3RRNR

Thanks for reading and I apologise in advance if you are offended in any way. 
I'm just sharing my opinion...


"But when you give to the needy, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing
so that your giving may be in secret. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you."

Ride Free! Re-sub with new funding system!

There's a new system on Threadless called 'funding'. If 50 people fund the design (place an order) it will actually get printed. If it doesn't reach 50 people by the end of the voting period, all funders get their money back and the shirt does not get printed.

So I figured I'd give it a try with an old submission that got a good score:



If you use this promo code when funding my design you get 5$ off:  VWOTS4

Also, I'm looking forward to seeing "The Tale of Princess Kaguya".

I made three designs for the The Incredibles challenge
As always with these challenges, too many ideas, not enough time...




Also, if you like Adventure Time but ran out of episodes to watch, try reading the comics.

Adam White Aid Print

"A longtime member and dear friend of the Threadless community, printed artist Adam White was recently diagnosed with early stages of multiple sclerosis and paresthesias. In an effort to help alleviate mounting medical expense, 30 Threadless artists have banded together to sell their work in this very special Adam White MADE Shop. 100% of net proceeds collected from pieces sold in this shop will be donated directly to Adam to aid his fight against this disease."

I am one of those 30 artists that contributed a design:


So cool that Threadless does this kind of thing to support good causes. 

A few weeks ago, there was a collaboration challenge called 'Lend a Hand',
with 41 artists designing their own version of a hand:


(I did the skeleton pixel hand)
This one got printed for the Adam White Benefit as well.

Also, JapanExpo was great!

Captain Spacefrog

I couldn't resist participating in the Threadless 'Characters' challenge. The idea of having your own vinyl figurine is just too cool.



Also, this game is going to be awesome:
Great choice of music for this trailer (65daysofstatic)

New Teepublic design + some Speedpaints

I uploaded another old Threadless design on Teepublic:


If you want to buy it, do it now, because it will only sell for 14$ the first two days. 
After that it will be sold for 20$.

I'm part of a speedpaint group on facebook which has new topics each week. The goal is to paint something relating to the topic in 30 minutes (or 50 minutes if you feel like taking it easy). Here are some of the paints:

Black Magic

Apocalypse

Evening Port

Bionic Shark

Also, I made this animated GIF as an invitation to my 25th birthday party/barbecue:


It was fun!

Teepublic Storefront

I'm opening a 'storefront' on Teepublic. It's a bit like Threadless and society6 mixed together. Every shirt is print on demand, so no voting process here, meaning everything is immediately available to be bought...
Hurray for modern technology giving instant mass consumption a little push in the back!

So, here's my first (and currently only) shirt up for sale on Teepublic:


More shirts coming soon!

2 Ren&Stimpy Designs

Here's two more Ren&Stimpy designs for the '90s are all that challenge:



Also, I think I'm going to take a break from the t-shirt designing so I can focus on other stuff.
