Aw – this nerd really thought he could cut it. This cautionary tale just goes to show that if you try and play the big boys’ game you might get hurt..
This great illustration from YAWN shows a great use of perspective and angles to get the point across. Whether you’re the sort of person who’d stand and laugh at the nerd, or (like me), you’re more likely to be the one on the deck with the broken glasses – this is a great and unique design to wear with pride.
Some people do great vector designs, some people do great illustration with more ‘paint’ techniques. Some do great ‘comic’ style.
This t-shirt by Redbubble newcomer Hammo pulls all of those together amazingly well. Not only is the idea great, the characters are just so well drawn and styled. I’d almost go as far as to say – for what it is – it’s perfect.
I’m a creative geek living in Melbourne, Australia who writes software by day, and creates T-shirts and other designs by night. This is all of course when time and motivation allows.
It’s probably accurate to say I dabble in things other than software to keep my creative side happy. I was always a keen musician (guitar, drums and keyboards) but am now happy to dream of the ‘greatness’ I never achieved. I may surprise myself yet… I might also get round to finishing my list of gig attendances one day.
I like to take pictures of things that interest me, and am becoming and increasingly keen photographer.
I occasionally write technical articles, produce the odd bit of freeware, and record technical thoughts on my Codebureau blog. Anything left may end up on this blog – but that's rapidly turning into my world of T-Shirts!
