Dangerous Accessories

I don't know what I'm thinking. Maybe I'm thinking I'd like this to become something cool. Yeah! And I think maybe I'll work on it some more as soon as I get back from 1992.

Game Buddy "Cardboard Edition" Package Design for Attract Mode

I mentioned last week that I had designed some unique box art for Adam Robezzoli's brand spankin' new video game culture shop Attract Mode, but this is the first chance I've had to see the design out in the wild. He had this idea to hand print his mailing boxes to make them look like an old handheld gaming system, and I think they turned out FANTASTIC! :D I'm floored! And I can't wait to put in an order so I can get one of my very own.

Sea Podling Treequarium

The colors are temporary, whilst I figure out what is actually going on here. Though I like that minty color.

Glug glug!

Naptime in the Podling Nursery

A zany idea for a Threadless design which I clearly haven't thought up a good name for yet.

Nakatomi Invitational Season 2 Now Available!

Holy hell! Look at that incredible list of names! Kevin Tong, Guy Burwell, Jeff Kleinsmith, Nick Derington, Jim Mahfood, Jay Ryan, Craig "Fucking" McCracken, and... Spacesick? That's gotta be a typo.

No, it's true! I was one of 8 peeps invited to be a part of this year's Nakatomi Invitational at the completely awesome Nakatomi, Inc. I'm so honored and excited it's SICK. You may ask, "Mitch, how in Crom's name were you lucky enough to even be mentioned in the same SENTENCE as these talented people?", and all I can say is "Hey, screw you too, buddy."

Read all about it here!

This year's theme is Robots, and each month a new limited edition T-shirt/poster combo will be released. Now dig THIS: you have the option of getting yourself the T-shirt for $20, the poster for $30, or BOTH for just $40. That's awesome! And each of the artists' prints and shirts are limited to just 100 each, so you know you're getting something special.

Kevin Tong's amazing design became available today, as well as the option to go for the whole shebang at once and purchase one of the extremely limited Series 2 Subscriptions for $300- only 10 of which will be sold. If you're a bad enough dude or dudette to afford something that epic, I suggest you drop your NES controller right now and hop to it before they all sell out!

P.S. - I'm not reading any of that

Computers: Those Amazing Machines (1985)

Brian Cook blogged about this AWESOME retrotastic book he picked up last week, and I just had to have one of my own. Within minutes, one was already on its way. I'm sick in the head like that.

It's the COOLEST! :D Take a peek inside here on Brian's flickr!

The Wish List (A Handy Conversion Chart)

I'm super tired, so I can't tell if this has potential right now. I guess I'll just have to take another look at it when I wake up tomorrow. I mean today. I mean zzzzz.
