Comic Book Panel Shelves

Comic Book Panel Shelves

Yet another comic book shelf/display, however this is a very simple concept: the end result looks like panels in a comic book page. This is made possible by using shelves with vertical dividers, populated by comic book holders with images on the ‘spines’ to form the panel art.

To take it a step further, a cabinet door with a comic book cover can be placed on the front:

Comic Book Panel Shelves

With or without the door the shelf would make for a neat display for your comics! Especially if you have a lot of single comics (as opposed to trade paperback books).

One note: it’s probably not that apparent, but I made small slots on the comic book holders so they can be pried from the shelf.

Toy Story Claw Crane Lamp

Toy Story Alien Claw Lamp

Here is a lamp design based on the claw crane game from the first Toy Story film, and it features a “captured” alien that you pull to turn the light on or off. It is the silliest thing I have ever posted.

The mockup above is on the small side to get the idea across, however I would prefer a large lamp populated by many alien dudes. You could even make the lower half a table, and the top half the lamp, if you get my drift. Either way a larger lamp would look closer in scale to its onscreen counterpart (which looks exactly like this, except it has glass partition supporting the top part of the rocket).

Bonus idea: originally I thought the captive-alien-in-a-claw would work as a necklace/pendant, similar to the Zelda design from a few months back.

Breaking Bad Money Bed Sheets

Breaking Bad Money Bed Sheets

Here is a design for your bed sheets that will make them look like stacks of money, specifically the large pile of cash that Huell and Kuby famously laid on top of in Breaking Bad.

There are a million places where you can get custom-printed bedding. Unfortunately a lot of the places I found online look sketchy, or they have production limitations (more on that in a second), or they don’t reply to my email inquiries. I was hoping to make this design a reality, but so far no dice.

The main limitation is that most places will project a single image onto the top of a bed sheet. I want to go a step further and project images onto all sides of the sheet, so you can see the sides of the money wrapped around the sides of the mattress.

If you know of a reputable custom bedding place that can do a “wrapped graphics” approach like this, please let me know in the comments. My goal is to make one for myself and share the art (in several bed sizes) with everyone.

Notes: above is a queen-sized bed, with life-size bills. If I was able to get this made I would include Breaking Bad characters on the bill faces too.

Steam Clock

Steam Clock Valve Software

Well the image pretty much speaks for itself, I reckon. I suppose you could fix it up to actually run on steam, but that’s way too over-the-top. There is one slight dig at Valve Software, so I hope they don’t suspend my Steam account (I need my Peggle fix to function).

Star Trek Desk

Star Trek Tom Spina

Recently I had the privilege of collaborating with Tom Spina Designs, makers of the famous Han Solo in Carbonite desk. The gig was for another desk, this time a commission for a client who wanted something special for their office: a desk based on the bridge from the most recent Star Trek films.

Netflix Blu-Ray/DVD Shelf

Netflix Blu-Ray Library Shelf

Thought this would be a fun way to organize and display your Blu-Rays: a shelf that looks like the Netflix Instant homepage. Now you can organize your films by genres, while displaying your favorite films front and center. Read the rest of this entry

Geeky Custom Deskpads

Custom Deskpad Cover Office Trends

A few weeks ago my friends at ES Robbins (the makers of the excellent NHL 94 chair mat) asked me to try out their new website for custom deskpads and chair mats. The timing of this was freaky because I was in the market for a deskpad, thanks to the keyboard scratching up my desk surface.

I opted to upload my own design, but it took me several days to decide on what I wanted on my deskpad. Did I want an 8-bit NHL rink? The world map from Avatar: The Last Airbender? A RISK gameboard? A map of Middle Earth or Westeros? A giant Magic: The Gathering playing card? The control panel from the bridge of the Enterprise-D? My detailed plans for world conquest?  And on and on.  Read the rest of this entry
