Tourtoise Tee – Cool Company working with Bands and Artists

February 22, 2013

If you’ve never heard of Tourtoise Tees, check it out!  It’s a pretty awesome company founded with the idea of pairing local artists and local musicians to make cool collaborations.  One of Tourtoise Tee’s design team members is paired with a band to create a limited edition band tee shirt.  Recently, Tourtoise Tee added me to the design team, and I’m excited to announce that my first tee design for the band Panoramic and True is now live!

How it works:

  • Tourtoise Tee hosts one new print-to-order band tee every friday.  The shirt is only available for a week.
  • For every two shirts sold on the website, the band gets one free printed shirt.  The only fee for bands is shipping costs.
  • The artist gets royalties for every shirt sold
  • A local Chicago screen-printer prints all preordered shirts, then the tees are shipped!

Here’s my design!  Click the photo to navigate to the Tourtoise Tee page!

February 5, 2013

Wanted to do some drawing studies of gems and minerals, so I paid a visit to the Lizzadro Museum of Lapidary Art in Elmhurst. It was the perfect spot! Plus it was pretty awesome to pretty much be the only person in there… Here’s some of the sketches I came away with. I used Art Set app and my cheapo Walgreens stylus.
