A friend turned me on to this cool new way to offer tee designs: Teespring. I’ve been totally stoked to give it a shot. Here’s how it works: when setting up the shirt “campaign,” the artist identifies the minimum goal. Pre-ordering is free, buyers will only be charged if the goal is reached within a week.
If you wanna rock this shirt, you’ll have to act before February 8th, and share the link with any of your friends that you think will like it. As always, I love love love all the support!
I’ve always wondered what it would be like to give birth. Well, not really. One of the perks of being a guy is that I don’t have to worry about that. I hear kidney stones can be pretty painful, too. But that’s neither here nor there. Luckily I didn’t let the fear of a little pain deter me from parenting a Little Dude anyway. Which of course means I accepted the invitation to design a paper toy figure for this really cool exhibition in Berlin opening on November 1st along with about a hundred other artists from around the world.
The coolest part is they’ll all be auctioned off and the proceeds will be going to charity, so it’s all for a good cause. I had a blast designing and building Spongemau5 into a 3D figure. I documented the building process so I could share it with all you guys on the glorious interwebs. I love technology.
To build this guy I used:
- Epson Hot Press Bright smooth Matte 330 gm/m2 18 mil paper. It’s archival ink jet paper for fine art reproductions (printed on my Epson 1280 ink jet printer).
- An Exacto knife
- Acid-free glue used for scrap-booking
- A 1/16″ hole punch
- One gold colored jump loop
- And a whole lot of love
I’m thinking about designing a kit so you can make your own, let me know if that is something you’ve interested in—I know I would dig seeing pictures of one of these guys sitting on your desk! Keep stayin’ up my friends
After canvasing the streets of Salt Lake City and abroad, it only seemed natural to slap the Ayecon on a shirt (mostly so I can wear my artwork every where I go). To my surprise, they have been moving really fast! Thank you to everyone that has purchased so far, it’s really to cool to find out other people appreciate the creative work that I do.
I plan on making most items limited editions so that your wardrobe can be as unique as you are. We have items for both guys and gals, the Ayecon loves you!
I was raised on a healthy dose of Saturday morning cartoons, so naturally He-Man was the best place to start with some fan-art Ayecon mash-ups. These vinyl slaps just dropped from my friends at StickerApp. I only have a few of ’em, so go grab a pack while they are still available—they will go quick.
