My friend Joe likes to mash his name into things. Like when I pick him up and don’t let him leave, he calls it Joe-Napping.
He also likes quoting Conan the Barbarian (sometimes appropriately…sometimes not).
Therefore, for Christmas I made this beautiful image for him. He was ecstatic!! In the photo he looks super grumpy about it, but I assure you he loved it. He’s just trying to make the same stoic face as he appears in the image. Though, nothing can match that majesty. Just look at how glossy those pecs are.
the whole process took me a little while, and it’s not completely perfect, but I’m extremely happy. When sorting my images in Picasa, the Google Algorithm that does face matching guessed that this picture as well as the original Conan the Barbarian source photo I used both appeared under Joe’s name, so I consider myself successful in this endeavor
We made a new piece! It’s called Dragon’s Breath. A special request from a dear friend of mine Samir Balwani made it to the top of our list. He requested a drink that would be ideal for shots, totally unique, and cool. Easy enough

These were the steps taken to make this particular brewery label.
First we start with the sketch, and there were lots of ideas going back and forth. General guidelines and feelings, but for the most part the client was receptive to new ideas and was willing to leave a lot of the creative elements up to me. I enjoyed this project quite a bit, mostly because of the people I was working with.
First we started with sketch work the client had done previously, ideas he had, thoughts on the topic. I asked him what his goals were, what kind of feelings he wanted to evoke. Asked him what styles he liked, showed him a few varied examples to get an idea. Fortunately, his ideas were mostly simple, elegant, and clean designs. I enjoyed that.

Yay, I filed for an LLC. That makes me a CEO. Kind of cool I guess. I don’t feel any different, am I supposed to be getting a package in the mail that teaches me how to be a jerk, or will that just happen over time? ha ha, just kidding.
Seriously, though: Geekglassware.com is also now live, and so is the Etsy page, facebook page, and twitter account. Also made the subreddit for a small nest of future planning that I’ve got in mind with the help from my best CEO-friend, Samir Balwani (he owns and runs SiteFox.com. I traded him tech support for advice and all that
The homepage for geekglassware is just a landing page, takes you directly to my Etsy account (which I am both proud and sad to say is nearly sold out of inventory). More glasses coming soon!
Serenity Firefly, not the bug firefly.
Just a teaser, I’ve made a Firefly (Serenity) glass, and another glass as a surprise gift for someone, which will be posted here after I give it to him/her (vagueness!)
Here were some templates I recently used (I totally forgot to take pictures of the actual glass after it was done)
To be honest, I kind of wish I never called this a steampunk monitor, because people have certain expectations of steampunk. It’s a provocative buzz word, and I’m guilty of trying to appear in search results. Really, this is more of an “industrial grunge” or an “End of Days” monitor [Editor note: I originally titled all my posts Steampunk Monitor but have since changed them, and the accompanying URLs]. Anywho, onwards!
I’ll just leave this here….
