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

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.

Easter Bot

Humanoids aren’t the only ones who enjoy a visit from the Easter Bunny.  Robots can have fun too – especially when their Easter baskets include Shrink Ray guns and Brach’s jelly beans (yes, I’m still obsessed with those delicious balls of sugar) 🙂

Meet Killbot Irontail.  He may be a wee bit unconventional but he is unwavering in his mission to spread Easter joy to all the good little baby bots in the world.

Robot Easter Illustration

I have an odd thing for rewriting the words to songs or poems.  I wrote a song about the Alaskan Iditerod to the tune of “Jingle Bells.”  I rewrote Shakespeare’s “To Be Or Not to Be” soliloquy to facilitate an internal debate on whether I was going to use powdered sugar glaze or royal icing to decorate my sugar cookies.  And now, I rewrote the words to the classic Easter song “Here Comes Peter Cottontail” to share the adventures of Killbot Irontail (a little known and completely made up Easter icon.)

The song is especially fun when you sing it out loud.  Try it.  Just don’t do it in front of your husband who has never even heard the original Peter Cottontail song and simply thinks your crazy (that totally didn’t happen to me.)

If you are dying to have your very own Killbot Irontail (or know of someone really cool who might want one as a gift,) check out the Easter section of my shop!

And if you are a robot… be content knowing that Killbot Irontail is on it’s way to spread some Easter joy to you and your baby bots!
