Part 1: in memoriam

03-30-2007 06:27 AM by scottb | 30 comments »

A recent string of chatter had me post an obit spoof as a potential t-shirt idea. Chip, Greg and Dr Sawdust (put in for about 3 dozen orders) and suggested I post this as a bonafide blog to gauge a wider audience… Oh, Obi and Karson like it too! So fellow jocks, does anyone else out there need a little wardrobe enhancement for the new season? Shall I add something along the lines of the text that follows (with some nice appropriate art – I am a graphic designer afterall!) to my...

Part 2: sneak peek at the next one

04-14-2007 05:54 PM by scottb | 10 comments »

It’s taken me a little longer than I thought to come up with some art for the “woodworkers obit shirt” (in days, not actual hours of work). After looking around for inspiration, I eventually came up with the perfect solution! on using…. A coffin smoother! I like having a couple layers of meaning, if not a little but of punny-ness. Here is the line art of what I have so far… The art still needs some finessing, (shading, detail, some typography… but...

Part 3: (lack of) progress report

06-16-2007 04:32 AM by scottb | 3 comments »

So often, as was the case with my comic, I had notebooks full or partial ideas. Lead-ins lacking an ending, or punchlines in need of a delivery… all I could do was collect them as they hit me. Eventually I’d have a complete idea. This worked for comics, art projects, and even some writing I’ve done over the years. My comic stripping days are behind me (4 years in college, one brief stint a year or so after, and another six month run a decade hence. Yet, I find my creative...

Part 4: Summer's Here!

06-22-2007 06:31 AM by scottb | 6 comments »

To add a little variety to your woodworking wardrobe (if you’re feeling a little cheeky now that summer is here and school’s out) I now have 2 shirts available – and with the move over to – plenty of color and size options. Tee’s Tanks, baseball jerseys and even sleeveless. The latest design for the offering features the Top Ten (Knotty) Woodworking Terms Sure they sound naughty, and may raise an eyebrow to the shop outsider… but you...

Part 5: another sneek peek

07-06-2007 06:17 AM by scottb | 7 comments »

There’s a quote, something to the effect of “I’m so far behind I’ll never die”... If that’s true, and we need to finish everything we start, I’ve come quite far in my quest for immortality. Why is it that I never seem to get anything done? Could it be the 60+ hour weeks? Trying desperately to cram projects, familytime and relaxation (you know, naps) into every weekend. Could it be jockeying for computertime, attempting to maintain three other blogs...

Part 6: Number Three - the "Air Plane" Tee!

08-04-2007 05:42 AM by scottb | 9 comments »

Here’s what all the fashionable jocks will be wearing the rest of the summer: (especially those with a nice off-kilter sense of humor and/or wordplay like mine…) Not only is it an “Air Plane” but it’s gone one step further and is a remote controlled (model?) air plane!This was a fun one to design, and I can’t wait for mine to show up in the mail! I’ve also reduced my (small) commission on the sale of these and my other shirts at printf...

Part 7: Save $5.00!

09-08-2007 07:15 PM by scottb | 4 comments »

You can now wear white after Labor Day! Just went in to check out my (dusty) online store, and I noticed that I didn’t select White T’s as an option (as I finally went to get one for myself). So I edited the store and in addition to several color options, Plain white is also one, and surprisingly, $5 cheaper than the more colorful offerings, and not to mention white goes with everything… I’ve also reduced my (small) commission on the sale of these and my...
