General Grievous

General Grievous, Doodle Dojo style. are having a Star Wars dark side competition, so naturally I had to get involved. General Grievous is one of those characters that gets a bit of a bad press, which is a shame, because he looks awesome. Not to mention that in the Clone Wars he is awesome. So I thought I'd try and do my bit to make him a bit more awesome. The added bonus is that if this shirt gets enough votes, there is a chance that it will get made into an officially licensed Star Wars design. If you can spare a few moments to send a score my way it would be very much appreciated! Just click through to WeLoveFine to vote.

Utopia Jetset

Where is Jessica Hyde?

"Most torturers tend to have their favorite areas of the body to work on. Genitals, teeth, soles of the feet. With me… it’s the eyes." I don't know how many people saw the awesome show Utopia on British TV recently but I did and I loved it. So I thought I would do a design based on it. I've always liked the simplicity of Jetset style shirts so this was my opportunity to give it a go. You just need a really memorable bit of text to make it work, and to me this was the most memorable scene in the entire series. If you haven't seen it I really recommend giving it a go, its violent and thought provoking and visually fantastic.

If you have already seen it and want to get yourself the shirt, head on over to Redbubble or Society 6 to get hold of it. All the details are on the Doodle Dojo Store.

Solo Smuggling

Captain Solo runs the best smuggling operation in the galaxy.
Captain Solo's Smuggling is the best in the galaxy. Ideal for those times when you need to avoid 'imperial entanglements' (that does cost you a little extra though). Time sensitive deliveries are a speciality, if you need to get stuff delivered in twelve parsecs or less, he's the man to trust.

I haven't done anything Star Wars related for a while so when I came up with an idea for making a logo for Solo Smuggling I thought I may as well go for it. I started out working on modern corporation style logos but as I carried on sketching it started to turn into something a bit more old fashioned and typographic. I got a bit carried away with the filigree patterning as well, which was fun to do once you get properly in the zone!

This one is available on light and dark backgrounds at Redbubble and Society6. All the details are at the Doodle Dojo Store.
