power up

31 Jul

blog powerMy artistic vision? Betabrand power pants. Oh, don’t get me wrong. The design is plenty gamer-centric enough to be featured as a lead line. Here’s why: 1. Its a great fit with the brand image. you gotta have a little chutzpah to put these babies on. Basically, it’s a go with the disco line. 2. I’ll admit it. There’s a little innuendo here. Maybe I think it’s a good thing to have power pants. “I’m wearing my power pants today” would just kinda set the right tone for the work crowd, don’t you think? Bonus: they’re loading, so that means you’re paying attention (at least to the red head). The 8- bit Challenge Alright, so this design is a throw-back. “Rainbows, really” You say. But no! There’s more. In an earlier version of this design, I catalogued all the colors in the 256 Hex library with charming chevrons: 8 bit chevron Yes. It’s a working library, and each color is labeled with the correct HEX number. It’s kinda a habit of mine … I really need to spend less time on the computer. Step Right this Way! We’ve got power bars showing that energy levels are rising and plenty of pixel – byte ratios to keep you thinking about it while you go forth to conquer the world! I give you power pants. Enjoy.


Legend pattern on Spoonflower

25 Jul


Meet legend, my latest little spoonflower creation. It’s for the highways and byways competition. I wanted to take map icons and remix them to create a work of art that is interesting and playful. So a few extra icons also had to jump into the mix. First, England has a new prince and I wanted a part of that in the mix, so the baby blue crown is above the crossing sign, signaling a royal change. There is an astronaut claiming love in the name of his country, a film camera watching, the restaurant icon has food in the spoon and on the fork, a dinosaur considers fast food, the question mark next to the TARDIS, and a few other little visual puns for fun. Thanks for checking out my little design. Please feel free to share it with your friends, and of course it is for sale in my spoonflower shop.
