Some of my favorite illustrations to look closely at, are cross-section pieces. To see how an artist has envisioned the inner workings of any given being or mech is really fun. I had an acquaintance in high school that would do very intrigue cross-sections of anime robots. It was really enjoyable watching the process in person. To this day, I do not have the patience to work out the intricacies of mechanisms nor to draft them.

That’s how I set up my account when I was collecting everything and had a place to house it all in. Now anything I “purchase” from EE either becomes a gift, is resold, or is one of those rare items that I attempt to make space for.
From time to time I’ve created some fun characters or redesigned a public domain character and decided to put it up on my TeePublic shop. To my astonishment some of my OCs have been purchased by a few fine folks out there. The fun just keeps going even after I finish my pieces.
Today I hit 1500 designs on my TeePublic account. Not all are winners, but there are a few that some folks have really enjoyed. I still have yet to see one of my shirts out in the wild, but I have a few friends who have sent me photos of them sporting my work. This weekend TeePublic is having a sitewide sale so if you ever wanted any of my designs as a coffee mug, a sticker or some sort of wearable, please check the sale out. Right now, it’s one of my main hustles and I love doing it. That’s all for now… I am going to get back to designing now. Cheers!
The following five designs are some of my top selling on TeePublic.com. Last November I featured the Top Five, this time I wanted to give six through ten a signal boost. While most of my top designs are not my personal favorites, I am stoked that they are other people’s favorites ^_^
When I was a child, I wanted to wear something like this. MFA was my favorite television show in 1977, it only lasted one season. I can recall learning how to swim like the main character, Mark Harris. Now they call it the Dolphin Kick… back then my Father thought I would drown if I tried to perform it 😉
Inspired by Samurai Mempo (armored facemasks), this was designed using the shapes tool in photoshop. The Mempo was another tool to incite fear in opponents. Now I just hope it turns back, or lessen the load of Viruses.
Kirby Crackle. Not much to explain about this one. Attributed to the late, great, Jack “King” Kirby; These dots convey power and energy on the comic page, and now they can be on multiple products.
Go Green with this Green Ranger mask. Sentai is near and dear to my heart, and this was created using nothing but Photoshop shapes and gaussian blur tool.
The Mach 5 was the first car I could name… even before the Bat-Mobile. Speed Racer and Ultraman were my first two favorite shows. This is my homage to the anime that helped shape me into the nerd I am today.
