Create your own T-shirt for Patrick’s Day

February 16, 2011 2 comments

After Valentine’s Day, Patrick’s Day! For Patrick, I hesitated between the Leprechaun (gnome in the long red beard and green coats part of Irish folklore), a sheep and a four-leaf clover. Finally, there were more opportunities with the sheep and Guinness:)

The hardest thing was to imagine the head of a sheep. Yet this is not what is lacking in New Zealand! I opted for a slightly cartoon style, a head long and narrow, large eyes, but no facial features humanization (such as a smile or eyebrow).

First test: a sheep jumping over a Guinness, a mixture between the expression count the sheep and the fact that alcohol has a soporific effect (at least at high doses).

The second is more of a delusion: a bunch of sheep drinking the Guinness. This version has not yet been reworked … I’ll start as soon as I have time!

The latter came to my working version of counting sheep I thought the coat looked like a lot of sheep in the foam of Guinness … where Irish Taste!

Happy St. Patrick’s all:)

Sweet as a Kiwi

October 10, 2010 2 comments

To please one of my kiwi friend, my last design in the Toon Shop is a small Kiwi. It’s just the vector graphic version of the drawing done last year.

Sweet As a Kiwi
Sweet As a Kiwi – 2010

The title “Sweet As” is an expression from New Zealand which means: cool, ok, fine, all good!

The first version was a bit more rough.

Little kiwi - Petit kiwi
Little Kiwi – 2009

In the mean time, I’ve changed the little legs and added some colours. The second version is in vector but the imported version in the store is in PNG. Indeed the colors number limit accepted by the system is 3 compared to 5 colors used for the drawing: black, white, dark gray, beige, light beige. But this is not the only reason! To import a vector graphic in the store, there are endless rules to follow, as the size of each shape or the distance between each shape. These rules were too complicated to follow with a subject so shaggy 🙂

In the Tshirt Shop, I created 30 new products with this design and discovered how to create categories:

  • Kiwis > I will probably continue to insert some new designs and products
  • The snail who didn’t like water > I’ve got a coloured version in reserve. Hope to upload this one soon 🙂
  • Angel or Devil > My first vector design!
  • Organic > All the organic Tee shirts whatever is the design because even a small gesture counts a lot to us all

Hope this will help you to find the product you like.

What is in your mind?

As I was creating the various products, I faced some questions and would like to have your comments:

Do you prefer the design in the back or in the front for the Men’s t-shirts?

Do you prefer colours or black and white design?

Do you prefer a little design on the chest or a bigger one?

Do you prefer cheap tees, nice jackets or organic tees?

See you soon!
