Blast Off with the Space Rangers

Blast off with the Official Junior Space Ranger Club! Become a member and you can enjoy an out-of-this-world collection of imaginary goodies – including a Space Ranger membership card, an official club newsletter, a secret decoder ring, a Space Ranger patch and even a super sonic ray gun! You won’t actually receive any of these things but you can pretend anyway 😉
Our excitement for space exploration and technology during the Space Age period had a huge effect on popular culture and entertainment. From children’s toys to television programming and even cereal boxes – everyone joined in on the fun! This design is inspired by my love of vintage ads and of course…. space! 🙂

Check out my design on Threadless!


Threadless Sneak Peek

Drum roll please… I’m super excited to announce that I will be opening a shirt shop on Threadless! Yippee!!

Threadless recently created an Artist Shop program that allows individual artists to showcase and sell their designs. The program is currently in Beta and shops are available through invitation only. Thousands of artists have applied but only a few dozen shops have been selected and opened so far. I can’t believe that I will have the opportunity to open an early shop. I’m so happy.

Here is a sneak peek of the designs that you will initially see. I’m only allowed a maximum of 12 designs at first but will be able to add more once the shops are launched for the general public.

You can check out some of the other artist shops here (while you are waiting for my awesome shop to open 🙂

I will post an update as soon as my shop goes live! Super awesome!

Eeekk! The X-Files!

Just a couple more days until the premiere of the X-Files and I’m so totally frickin’ excited! I remember watching The X-Files in college with my floor-mates (including my super awesome future hubby.) It was the highlight of the week. We used to make tacos, drink strawberry slushies and huddle around the TV to watch the greatest show in the history of television 🙂

We are anticipating a blizzard this weekend with 2-3 feet of snow… if our power goes out, I’m going to cry.

Science Makes Me Awesome

Science makes me frickin’ awesome!  OK… science doesn’t really make ME frickin’ awesome – but it does makes actual scientists frickin’ awesome.  So I made a t-shirt for the frickin’ awesome scientists (and anyone else who really likes science) so that they could be even more frickin’ awesome 🙂

Works as Designed

As a tribute to all of the super awesome and nerdy developers in the world (my hubby included,) I created this silly little design for Threadless.  It is a sarcastic play on the classic programmer “excuse” that a defect isn’t a bug.. it’s a “feature” of the software 🙂

Check it out on Threadless!

I'm a feature... not a bug

Book Nerd Man

It’s a bird… It’s a plane… No!  It’s Book Nerd Man!

I finished a couple nerdy book illustrations this week – one for Threadless’ Nerds Rule challenge and the other just for fun (because I’m pretty much a super nerd myself.)

Here is my nerdy orange “Read Me” book man illustration…

And here is the version that I submitted to Threadless…

Book Nerd | Nerdy Book Illustration by treemanJAKE | for Threadless


Book Nerd Man is so super happy.

I posted the orange version to Society6 in case anyone is interested.  The blue one will be posted later if it isn’t selected for Threadless… but I’m really hoping it will be 🙂

Reading Makes Us Awesome

I was so excited about the supreme dorkiness of my latest Threadless submission that I decided to upload it immediately to Society6 🙂  I tweaked the design to make it more kid-friendly and added a geeky girl version as well.

I really want to get a few of the mugs for teacher gifts this year 🙂

If you want your own geeky goodness, you can find the nerdy girl version HERE and the geeky guy version HERE.
