One of the birthday presents I gave myself this year was to finally start designing t-shirts and putting them online… not necessarily to sell to other people, but so that I could start wearing more of my own stuff.[Edited to add:] If you’re interested in any of these designs, you’ll find purchasing options here:
–> 100% Star Stuff
–> I want to believe: Mermaids
–> I want to believe: Centaurs
Behold, my first design!
Obviously, this one was inspired by my amazing week at the Launch Pad Astronomy Workshop and the famous Carl Sagan quote, “We are made of star stuff.” I’m hoping to add many more space- and science-themed t-shirts as I go.
The other two designs are based on some of my Above World illustrations. I’ve combined them with the famous UFO poster featured in the X-Files for some fantasy takes on “I want to believe.” (In the case of Above World, though, they stand for “I want to believe that someday we can bioengineer ourselves into centaurs and mermaids.”)
I’m using Tiger Bright Studios (my ebook cover design company) as the company name for my designs and have chosen Redbubble as the vendor, although that may change. They use American Apparel t-shirts — nice quality, but I’m a medium in shirts and the XL “girly” t-shirt is almost too small.
I realize this is a silly thing, but even so, I’m having SO MUCH FUN.
