I haven’t posted in a while, so I thought I would do a quick post on what’s new and going on with me. I haven’t gotten out with the camera much this winter, but I did set up a couple floral shots. Hopefully, with the weather warming up, and grass getting greener, I’ll be able to get out and get some new work!
And one candle image, that is only available on Zazzle.
I also worked on a new photomanipulation. This was intended to be the ‘sequel’ to Ephemeral Partings, but it seemed to get away from the oringal design a bit.
There are also a few new digital abstracts.
Of course the designs are available on other products too.
I was also asked to illustrate a Fire Saftey coloring book, which is in progress, and was able to create some products featuring 2 of the characters.
I also started making business cards designs on Zazzle. You can view them all here, but here are a couple examples.
As you can see, I like the black cards. All of them are customizable, and the colored ones in the middle can have their background colors changed.
Geesh, I guess I have been busy! But I have found time to take my kids to the park.
Additionally, I just sent out a bunch of images to be printed. I hope to be hitting the art show circuit this year. I already have a few lined up. Wish me luck!!
Earth Day is coming up, and what better way to celebrate this glorious planet we call home, than planting a tree. Remember the days when you were sent home from school on Earth Day with a tiny pine tree to plant? Mine never survived, not to mention there really wasn’t room in the yard for another tree. So if you want to help contribute by planting a tree, but don’t have a place to plant one, buy a T-shirt!
A T-shirt? What the heck does a T-shirt have to do with planting trees? Well, I will tell you…
Zazzle has gotten together with American Forests to create “Tree-Shirt Releaf.” This will give customers the opportunity to have a tree planted for every T-shirt they buy between April 16 and Earth Day on April 24! At check-out use the offer code “plantatree09″.
Personally, I think this a wonderful idea! You get a great new shirt, and help the planet! If you want to go a step further, Zazzle offers organic T-shirts! (The all-organic cotton classic t-shirt. 100% organic fine jersey cotton, combed for comfort. Flattering, stylish fit on virtually any body type. Made in the USA by American Apparel.) When you find a shirt you like, just look through the shirt options!
Additionally, in celebration of Earth Day, many of the Zazzle contributors have created some great designs. Check a few of these out!

Even if you don’t buy a T-shirt, GET OUT THERE AND PLANT A TREE!!!!
Once again, I was slowly building up enough images to blog about it, but I now have a new product line at my Zazzle Store for Fire & EMS. Each design is offered on several different products, and I’m still working on expanding the product lines.
FIRE EMS COMBO:
Just a reminder, each design, and variations of them, are available on several other products such as: Cards, Posters, T-shirts, Postcards, Mugs, Stickers, Stamps, etc.
Since I started working on my scuba diving designs, which needed to be vectorized to make good t-shirts, I’ve been screwing around in our sign program drawing other designs too. I can’t quite get the whole drawing and vectorizing in Photoshop, so I have to make do with this other program. So once again, I’m gonna self-promote and share some of my new vector designs! A couple of these are available as t-shirts at my Redbubble gallery, and all are available on multiple products at my Zazzle store.
With my first series of vector image product, I would like to introduce you to Pynki Q! She’s just a lil blob of a thing I drew playing in the sign program.
As you can see, she’s available on stickers, in which you can change the background color. Also she has her own mug, shirts, and more!
And then there’s Pynki Q’s brother (or just the bluer version of Pynki Q), Pynki Q Blue!
Pynki Q Blue is also featured on stickers and is featured in his very own Birthday card!
And here is someone else I would like to introduce you too, he comes in several different colors, but is always happy to see you. I introduce to you Mr. Happy Bones! (I know, the names are gay!)
I also made a few customizable cards with a lovely floral vector I drew, that is also available on shirts. Just click the customize it button, and you can change the background color and the text to fit your needs!
And then there’s the lovely butterfly.
And a cute lil fishy!
The lil fishy lead me to draw this mini scuba cartoon, which I feel is a little better than the last one I tried. It is also available as a mug, sticker, and postcard.
I have a few more drawings done, including a guitar and a frog, but just haven’t uploaded and made anything with them yet. I hope you enjoyed my little preview of some of my new products.
