Pirate Poker at TeePublic

Pirate Poker T-shirt design by Jayme Art

  Once a year Pirate cats from the seven seas would meet for a high stakes poker game. It was held in a secret cove and attended by the most infamous cat Pirates. ‘Bloody’ Paws McGee, Captain ‘Claws’ Calico, and Jack Sparrow-Eater were all there, as well as the meanest kitty of all, Fluffy.  They played for a golden doubloon which was rumored to have magical powers…

Experiencing Technical Difficulties

Hello! Today my blog is experiencing some technical difficulties.

Now might be a good time to mention that I’m in the process of making a new blog about T-shirt designs. I’ve been wanting to focus on designing wearable art for some time.

I keep a private spare blog to test new themes and such. I had uploaded a copy of this one to my spare, via a wordpress XML file.  After deciding to use the spare blog for the new T-shirt one, I began deleting the copied stuff from here. I’d made it through all the media files when I found out…

…I had actually deleted it from this one, my primary blog.  :[

So, I’ve uploaded the latest copy of the XML file and am hoping to restore the media files. Maybe this will be a good tip for those who haven’t done it before: Make copies of your blog.

Well, this doesnt look good… Note: This will ONLY export your posts, pages, comments, categories, and tags; uploads and images may need to be manually transferred to the new blog. The current version of the installation gives you the option to import uploaded files, but the blog you are importing from must be live and serving images properly in order for it to work. So, do not delete your blog until after media files have successfully been imported into the new blog.

~Hope you’re having a great day. I’ll post more about the new blog when its finished.

SketchPort is a social network for artists.

A huge part of SketchPort is the community. Users from all over the world come to encourage others and give feedback.

In fact, you don’t have to be an artist. Drawing is a medium for communication where producing and consuming are equally important.

You can make vectors at SketchPort.

SketchPort Vector is a new type of vector based drawing application. The canvas is infinite, there is no pixelation, but you still get to draw freehand.

 There is a SketchPort draw and guess game.  A Broadcast mode allows you to watch and broadcast drawings in real time.  There are additional Games, Challenges and more…

Odosketch is Retiring


From the Odosketch page:

Friends & Supporters,

After an amazing eight years and over 600,000 sketches we are sad to say that we are retiring Odosketch.

Odosketch was the love child of a handful of amazing people at Odopod. Over the years, our focus has changed and we have come to the difficult realization that Odosketch no longer has a significant role to play in our future.

We want to thank you for all of your support and, more importantly, your drawings. They’ve been a source of inspiration and countless laughs.

For those of you that would like to save your drawings there are two options detailed below. Be sure to collect your images before August 30, 2013. They will no longer be available after that date.

Keep drawing,

The Odosketch Crew

So long Odosketch,  It was fun while it lasted!

Making a Dragon or Dino Puppet

Making Puppets

My daughter and I decided it might be fun to make puppets. We had ideas of what we’d like them to look like, however we hadn’t made puppets out of these materials before. We figured it out as we went and picked up some tips for next time. The following film highlights our experience puppet making.  –It was fun.
