It’s about time I showed up here, right guys? I’ve been missing for some weeks now, but I’m back. The reason I’m here today is to announce that my design “Party Animal” was selected as an Editor’s Choice at Shirt.Woot. This design has competed two times and finally made it as a real Tee. I was very attached to this design since the beginning, and seen it been featured makes me a happy designer. Thanks for all the votes and comments during those two weeks, and for making this a wooters favorite!
I’m running a contest this week at my Facebook Fan Page (Primitive Tool). So make sure to visit and participate for a change of a free “Party Animal” shirt.
I might update this post later today with some other news that might be appearing during the day ;)
Every week, every derby, every design is a new challenge. And sometimes challenges can be… well… challenging. This past week’s theme was “Personality Traits”. Yes I know, its sooooo abstract. The good thing about this is that you can design almost anything, and still be on theme. It didn’t take me long to commit to an idea (and that doesn’t happen too often – this meant that I really believed in that idea). I chose the phrase “party animal” as my concept. I researched different wild animals to see which one I could use for my design, and when a picture of a rhinoceros came up, I just knew that it was the one. I really love the final result, specially the contrast between his serious and tough face, and the fun party hat. 6 colors (+ halftones) on asphalt shirt. Hope you all like it and vote!
It’s been a while since I’ve dropped by and leave a post. I’ll come back soon and let you all know what you’ve missed. But for now I wanted to tell everyone some Awesome News.
My design “Night of the Ulric” won 1st place on Shirt.Woot’s “Fall” derby and it’s available right now as a Tee or a a Hoodie. Hope you like it enough to buy 1 or 2 dozens ;)
Don’t you hate being the oddball in a group of people. I do too, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have fun while you are with that group. That is what my latest design is about, having fun while being different. Vegetarians can be a pain sometimes if you are the only meat lover around, so show them how you feel with this design!

I am not a fan of shirt designs that are too cute, that’s why this new derby made me feel a little bit out of place. The theme is “Kitties”, that’s right, kitties like in felines. I am an animal lover and I take care of a few of them, including two cats. So yes, I like cats, what I don’t like is the idea of having to design a shirt around them, specially when there are a lot of artists that are pretty good at these kind of designs.
My take on the theme is basically an interpretation of the cover for the console game Portal, using as the main concept a mash-up between a kitty and GlaDos, a robot character from the game. I liked the idea of making a robot cat, specially one that has just one eye and all the proportions are different from what we are used to. Why…? Why not?
