Linkachu

"Linka linka... linka-chuuuu!"
My latest t-shirt design is a Pok√©mon/Zelda mashup titled "Linkachu" and it's currently up for voting on Qwertee. If you like it, please vote and share it, thank you!


Otherwise you can always...


This was the design that took me the most to complete so far. I mistook it for an easy task, but it actually took me an enormous amount of work to come up with the final look. Drawing Pikachu was easy, but everything else proved to be a challenge. Drawing the sword and the shield was time-consuming, and I had to experiment a lot on the lightnings, hat and blouse. I tried at least twenty different ways to draw the hat for example. I deeply thank everyone in the Facebook group Italian Tee-signers for the precious advices.

An example of a few tests

After all the time I've spent on this design I must say that I love working with vector graphics! I'm having a lot of fun designing t-shirts and I thank everyone for their support, comments and advices! Thank you guys!

As always, I've made available for free the wallpapers. You can find them here.

My Neighbor Jabba

Jabba just wants to be cuddled!

"My Neighbor Jabba" is a mashup between Star Wars and My Neighbor Totoro. Here we have a cute little baby Leia rubbing Jabba's nose, just like Mei did to Totoro when they first met.

My Neighbor Jabba is up for voting on Qwertee. If you like it, please vote and share it!

This is my eighth t-shirt design and the second one that I drew with my new Wacom tablet. Since I had a lot of fun drawing and designing Han with Friend, I decided to give another shot at the funny/cute Star Wars theme. This time though I didn't use Photoshop at all and worked 100% in Illustrator.

It took me roughly two weeks of work to come up with the final look of this design (not full-time of course, I'm doing this in my free time). While Jabba's face was ready within five minutes, it took me a lot of trial-and-error to design the logo and to balance everything "correctly".

As always, you can download freely the wallpaper at this address.

Han with Friend

It's dangerous to go "solo", take a wookiee with you!

"Han with Friend" is my seventh t-shirt design and my tribute to May the 4th (Be with You), the unofficial Star Wars "holiday". I had a lot of fun working on it and I'm quite happy with the final look.

"Han with Friend" is currently available on my TeePublic, RedBubble, Design by Humans and NeatoShop portfolios.



Previously, it went on sale on Qwertee and OtherTees for a limited time.

This was actually the first time I've drawn 100% digitally a design, thanks to my new Wacom tablet, and it was fun to experiment with this kind of technique. First I drew the sketch, then I re-drew in vectors every line, experimenting with stroke size and shape. When the drawing was complete I played around with colors and halftoned the hair/fur shades and red cheeks. The finishing touches were the shadows and the white outline.

First rough sketch

As usual, you can download freely the wallpaper at this address. Don't hesitate to ask if you need a particular resolution.

Testing my new graphics tablet...


Recently I bought my first graphics tablet: a Wacom Intuos Pen & Touch. Last week I was busy testing it and trying to get used to it. It's a great product but it isn't easy to adapt to this way of drawing. But I think I'm slowly getting into it... and it has a ton of potential! I'm deeply satisfied of this purchase!


Here's my precious!
