In Canada we have this cruel annual tradition where Cadbury Creme Eggs are sold from Jan 1st until Easter, then poof, they’re gone. I would like a year-round variant that combines the eggs with the Caramilk bar. If this became a thing, all of the turmoil that plagues our great country would be completely eradicated. No pressure, Cadbury.
Thought I’d offer a new spin on those classic McDonald’s Halloween pails: safety lights for Trick-or-Treaters. These tiny lights could be clipped to shoes, lanyards, wrist bands, or anywhere really.

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. 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).
This one started as a case design for the upcoming Super Smash Bros. for the Wii U, but I felt that drink coasters would be more appropriate. The coasters are based on the “chips” used in the player select screen, and they are stored in a very familiar crate. This set makes for a fun and colorful design that would look at home in your living room or rec room.

Yesterday the special edition Blu-Ray case for Breaking Bad was announced, and I really dig the barrel design, almost as much as my design (which could also work as a slipcase, now that I think of it). That said I think the many barrels seen in the show would make for a cool set of drinking cups.
The larger barrels that would double as mugs and the smaller barrels would function as shot glasses. Completing the set are drinking coasters in the shape of wood pallets (the kind you’d find in a warehouse).
I coined the idea for the coasters on my own, but I’m happy to say many others have beaten me to it — you can buy them from several places right now. One difference is my coasters have no gaps on the top where the drink sits, to help prevent fluids from getting to the surface you’re trying to protect; the ones currently on the market don’t appear to be effective in that regard! Those other coasters don’t respect the wood, if you get my reference.
I’ve been getting many requests to make a few of my posters available at other sellers because my current Imagekind vendor can be a wee bit pricey for overseas shipping!
Here are your options:
Zazzle: Best for international shipping. Here is the link.
Imagekind: Best for North American shipping. Here is the link.
Both places feature frequent promotions, numerous sizes, paper types, and framing options. If you’re frugal you might have to head to the checkout for both to see the best price.
