Originally wanted to make a piggy bank design, but then I realized I’m an adult (hey it was bound to happen) who likes to keep coins/keys in a coin dish, so I went with that instead. Nothing fancy about this design, just a Scott Pilgrim figurine standing victorious over a fallen opponent.
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.
The sheets are printed in a way that the front and sides of the money bundles are projected onto the sides of the mattress. It should look good, if the images are aligned properly.
A piggy bank that is just a red plastic box with a black label. It could be illuminated with LED’s and feature sound FX (like inserting a coin into X game), but one less thing to worry about batteries and upkeep is a win-win if you ask me.
The “coin” gap on the left could be a handy place to store bills or credit cards.
You probably remember the phrase “There is always money in the Banana Stand” from Arrested Development, a reference to the large stash of money hidden in its walls, not the stand’s revenue potential (as initially thought). So I felt the Banana Stand would make for a neat piggy bank, but alas other geeks have already thought of that.
So I propose an ATM machine design instead! This way it would be close to the size of the actual Banana Stand seen in the show, and would be in keeping with the aforementioned phrase.
I still get e-mails from time to time asking where this can be purchased, so I decided to touch it up and upload it to Imageready, where you can buy it commission-free, at least until Miramax asks me to remove it (in a violent, yet critically-acclaimed fashion). Hit the link or the image to go to the store listing.

Here’s a piggy bank based on Scrooge McDuck’s vault, the very one where he dives into a pool of coins without injury. I’m surprised Disney hasn’t made this item yet, given their track record for making clever tie-in products. Of all the properties Disney has, this is the most appropriate for a piggy bank, but I’ve been wrong before.
Here is a fun wristwatch design based on the night vision goggles from Jurassic Park. At first glance it looks like something just for the kids, but it has a sporty look many adults would appreciate in my opinion.
