I’m Making Cancer My Bitch

30 01 2008

This next t-shirt has personal significance for me. My girlfriend and I started off in California, but wee moved up here to Idaho so that she could be closer to her mom. See, her mom has cancer.

Due to some uncontrollable complications my girlfriend has never had the opportunity to live close to her mom. So she is making it a point to spend as much time as she can now with her. Her mom’s cancer is unfortunately in the late stages. Though she tries to downplay how bad it is to save her family’s feelings, we’re pretty sure that it’s stage four. She needs to go to the hospital for fluids quite often, and her arm needs to be massaged almost everyday because of how hard it is getting. Her breasts are literally as hard as rocks, but they won’t do surgery because of how far the cancer has advanced; the wounds would be unable to heal if they did do surgery.

So when I came across this next t-shirt by Chucklenut Shirts, I felt very grateful that someone would take such a serious subject matter and make it funny in good taste. I showed it to my girlfriend and she really appreciated it. It’s a very retro t-shirt design, with a clipart-style picture of a lady saying “I’m making cancer my bitch!”

Stargaze With Wonder

30 01 2008

This watercolor style design is from a shop that just opened up called Susan Faye Originals. She has many colorful images that are perfect for nature lover and cat lovers. Though there are many designs to choose from, this one is my favorite. It’s a abstract picture of beautiful scenery at night, with mountains, trees and stars reflecting off of a river. Normally I’m not a fan of the square shape on t-shirts, but the text both above and below the design that says ‘Stargaze With Wonder’ makes this one work well.

Wow! You really love me!

30 01 2008

I decided to check up on this blog’s stats, just for fun, and was quite surprised to find that there are still tons of people coming here every day! It seems like a waste of potential to just ignore it just cos WordPress won’t allow Google Adsense on it. Ironic really, as the Google search engine seems to just adore WordPress.

I do like the layout and structure of the site…oh, what the hell! I’ll go ahead and blog at both places. I’m sure I can juggle multiple blogs. I’ll just post some of the more recent entries from the other blog to get this one up to speed. See, now you have a choice.

Fresh Tag In Blue

17 01 2008

I’m not sure what made me do it…perhaps it was the recent obsession with Samurai Champloo…but I decided to explore some graffiti art designs. I came across this really cool pattern made by a guy who calls himself Crayone. I must have picked someone good, because his shop says that he is a world famous graffiti artist from the San Francisco Bay Area. His specialty is hip-hop style tags.Fresh Tag In Blue

Green Eye Art

16 01 2008

Some might think this abstract art piece to be absolutely gorgeous, while others may find it to be just a bit creepy. You’ll know within 0.1 seconds of seeing this next design which category you fit in. It’s what looks to be an airbrushed painting of a green eye, and it looks very life-like. It’s from a basic Cafepress shop so I’ve included an enlarged thumbnail of the design on a long-sleeve shirt. I would like to see this idea expanded into a premium shop with several other eye colors to choose from.

This ornate floral vector art makes for a really groovy t-shirt design. I just love these abstract pieces! This one has a variety of different flower shapes amidst swirling stems.
