GOT Alphabet

Season 4 can't come soon enough, so I thought I would tide myself over with this Game of Thrones-inspired alphabet:

Have fun guessing who is who! Let me know your guesses here or over on Facebook. I'll give you one in case you haven't read the books: Z is Zollo.

Prints, shirts, pillows, phone cases, mugs and more are available at Society6 and Redbubble.

Princess Alphabet

I'd long considered a princess alphabet. I knew there weren't enough choices if you just looked at the princesses that most little girls think of when they play dress up, but by tapping into more pop culture icons for inspiration, I was was able to complete all 26 letters. This was even with giving myself the extra challenge of only adding actual princesses, not just characters that are princess-like.

What was especially fun about this was realizing that there are actually a wider range of princesses out there than when you first think of the term "princess."

Good luck guessing who is who. You'll need to consider movies, TV, comic books, video games and books. I'll give you one: Q is Qing Dynasty Princess.

EDIT: Congrats to Sarah Burnett who won a free shirt from NeatoShop for correctly identifying all 26 princesses on Facebook.

Springfield Follicles

I've always been amazed at the vast scope of personalities, professions and characters depicted on The Simpsons. So many characters have made such a lasting impression.

With this design, I wanted to emphasize the iconic nature of these characters by illustrating how identifiable they are even if only looking at their hair (okay, and some hats).

Each figure represents a different Springfieldian. How many can you identify?

Now up for voting at Threadless:

The Periodic Table of the Muppets

A comprehensive depiction of many memorable Muppet characters from throughout the years (and some not-so-memorable ones as well).

Each square represents a different character and indicates the primary Muppeteer(s) for that character, as well as the year and production in which the character made its debut. Borders align with hair/hat colour, background aligns with skin/fur colour, and colour of the abbreviated name represents nose colour (for characters with noses that is).

The separate sections are based on the show the characters were either created for or most often associated with. The icons within each section are then organized by year of creation.

Available as prints and more at Redbubble and Society6.
