For those of you who follow me on Twitter, this might not be nearly as exciting news. But for those of you who don’t, I’ve had an extremely busy month and a half filled with both new projects for work (I’ll link you when they’re done), real life projects (learning to drive, making loud, sarcastic comments at the presidential debates), and a good old-fashioned heavy dose of writer’s block.
In the midst of all this busyness, I finally ordered the Wacom tablet my parents promised me for Hannukah years ago but I’d been dithering over which model to get ever since. For any artists following me, I honestly cannot recommend a tablet highly enough. Every piece of artwork I used to post was scanned and then cleaned pixel-by-pixel by hand and colored in in excruciatingly slow detail. I’m honestly amazed I ever posted any art at all. But getting a Wacom finally allowed me to do what I’d been dreaming of doing for years – creating designs clean and professional enough to send in to Threadless.
This is my first design, which I originally made for a Gap Kids contest that I didn’t make the deadline of. I ended up loving it so much, though, that I decided to just submit it anyway. If you love it too, it would mean a ton to me for you to go rate it highly on Threadless at some point in the next five days. I’ve also made this design available as a wallpaper (it’s 800px x 1200px, and I’ll be happy to re-size it on request).
Hopefully my projects will soon start finishing up and my writer’s block will go away and I’ll be able to post more. Until then, you guys who stick around are the best. You’re the wind beneath my wings. I love you. You’re awesome.
Now go vote for my fucking t-shirt.
