You can grab a high-res poster here.
I haven’t done a new poster in a long time, so I thought I’d tackle the Steak House print seen in Ron Swanson’s office. It looks a little grainy here (darn you, WordPress!), but the actual print is very detailed and high-res. I’m not the first to make this poster, but I wanted to create a larger and more show-accurate version.

A few weeks ago Adventure Time featured some “Canadian Maple Syrup” guards (they hail from the Breakfast Kingdom), and as a Canadian I thought they were hilarious. I mean, they were standing on guard fer crêpes sake.
Anyways I think it would be awesome if a maple syrup company produced a collectors bottle to look like this character. Granted, the dude is a throwaway gag, but I still want one.
I was in my neighborhood Staples recently (What? Even us lowly bloggers need practical office solutions), when I saw their famous Easy Button gag gift, which is a button that serves no function. So I thought if I wanted a geeky non-functioning button on my desk, it would be the Independent Thought Alarm from The Simpsons.
Sure it could be wired up to something or make a buzz sound when pressed, but I’d be happy with a plain trinket that I’d park on my desk. I feel it would be a hit with teachers and other people in positions of authority (bosses or supervisors).
I’ve been looking at electrical switch boxes and press buttons for a DIY version, so stay tuned for news on that.
UPDATE: My first foray into crowdfunding has ended, and the Teespring campaign to offer these t-shirts did not reach its goal. I’m bummed because people tell me all the time to Kickstart this or Indiegogo that! Oh well, them’s the brakes. Obviously I won’t be attempting to crowdfund apparel items again, mostly because there’s so many outlets for that kind of merch online.
Recently I did the art for this Dinobots tee for 80’s Tees (the hilarious idea was theirs), so do check that out.
UPDATE: My bad, there are already products on the market like this! They’re from NECA, and you can buy one now. Original post as follows:
When you go the extra mile to conceal the wires stemming from a wall-mounted TV, it looks great. Sometimes concealing wires is not an option, so here’s an idea: have Batman and Robin scale the wires like they are climbing up a building (a “Batclimb“, as it was known in the 60’s series).
I used over-sized Lego Minifigures here to demonstrate the idea, but you’ll probably be better-served by something like these.
Batman and Robin work great here because there are usually two cables hanging from the TV (the power cord and HDMI cable), so they’d cling to one cable each. If additional cables are present you could use Batgirl and Nightwing too.
There are other approaches too (such as Luke Skywalker heading up to an AT-AT), however the dynamic duo look at home climbing up the wall.
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.
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
Yesterday I posted a Zelda pendant, and in that post I mentioned my original intention was to make a design based on Attack On Titan. I’ve gotten quite a few responses asking about the discarded AoT design, so I decided to share the mock-up.
In the Zelda post I sort of implied that the 3D Maneuvering Gear would be used as the chain in some way, but I was probably a bit vague in my wording. My bad.
The reason I went with Zelda is that it would be more compact and, well, cute (I’m keeping my man card, thank-you). I felt AoT would be a bit too busy, despite the fun aspect of turning its wearer into a titan of sorts.
If this were actually made, I’d put the swords back in their sheaths to make this pendant less pointy.
