Awesome tees for awesome-r beverages!

Hello folks! Luis here! We recently partnered with the great people of Novamex to design some tees for some of their Summer marketing initiatives. If you're Mexican, know Mexicans or just love Mexican food, you definitely know who they are or have at least [repeatedly] tried their products. They're the saints that bring us Jarritos, Sidral Mundet, Sangria Senorial, and the delicious hot sauce, Cholula (the one with the wooden cap), just to name a few.

We had the task of designing for my personal favorite sodas (honestly), Sangria Senorial; which, as the name suggests is derived from the alcoholic beverage Sangria; and Sidral Mundet, an apple-flavored soda that comes in two flavors: red and green apple. Below are the designs (the monster tees did not move forward, but we still loved them, so wanted to show them off ;).

It was such a rewarding experience working on this project, not only because they were such a blast to work with (nicest people in the world!) but for me, it's a brand I grew up with and brings back so many fond memories of my childhood. Read about the two beverages here www.sangriasenorial.com and www.sidralmundet.com and see what other products Novamex distributes here: www.novamex.com/.

Thanks Novamex and thank you for reading!

Fun Target Bedding

Mel here dropping in to share some bedding I was able to work on last year that has finally hit store shelves this season! When you are asked to design bedding and the content is pretty much "use dots & stripes that appeals to mass market" you have to rely heavily on placement, fabrics and color to make it feel fun! And that's what (I hope) happened here :)

Los Luchadores Maravillosos

 Hello! Luis here - The Chicago Comic Con is fast approaching and we're scrambling to create some new pieces for the visitors this year. We'll being some old favs from last year, but people want the new. We'll be posting some other projects soon, but until then here's the latest pieces. For as long as I'll live, I'll always remember my summer vacations as a kid to Mexico where we'd visit our family. Long car rides to Acapulco without air conditioning, is something I won't soon forget, but more unforgettable were the many, many times my uncle would take us all to LUCHA LIBRE at the local arena. It was AMAZING! The flips, the characters, the toys and most of all, the masks! I had a personal collection of my favorite luchador masks (El Ultimo Dragon was numero uno!). For this personal project, I thought it'd be cool to interpret some of my favorite super heroes as luchadores. The masks are totally lo-fi and what you'd expect to see from the luchadores back then. I took the liberty and creative freedom with the names as well. I imagined my mother saying Captain America's real name Steve Rogers as Estevan Royers (her Gs aren't always there). What do you folks think of the aged paper textures? Keep? Thanks and enjoy!

We got printed!!

One of the things we love to do around here is design tees. Especially when it's for our demographic. Threadless has been a great outlet for our creativity in our spare time and our second selected tee just went on sale!! Check it out here or click the photos below:
We're also going to do a version more suitable for printing. Check for that soon over at Society 6. Thanks for all who voted!

Hooray for nerds!

We came across this cool nerdy site yesterday, Geek Rest, and lo and behold...they had posted some of our work we had done for Wizard World 2011! A lot of our work is whimsical and very stylized, but on this grouping we wanted to explore some simpler designs. There's also a Spongebob piece we did which they didn't include. Check it out: www.geekrest.com/2012/03/stylized-superhero-designs-by-idea-monster/.

Anyways, we are prepping  for Wizard World 2012 and we're putting our heads together to see what kind of fun, new surprises we can cook up for all of the awesome people we'll meet this year!! We'll recap for sure! Stay tuned. Different Bat Time, Same Bat Channel!! POW!!! BAM!!!
