As you guys know we occasionally send out DC mugs to members, like these:
3dcmugs.jpgDC Mug/TShirt Designs that would be nice to have an artist for..

It would be nice to have a couple more designs for different purposes, like a mug/t-shirt design for programmers who release a bunch of Coding Snack tools.  There might be other occasions that would be nice to honor as well (graduation? military service?).

I'm just posting this in case any DC members who are artists stumble across this and want to give it a shot.. I know we are all faithful to our beloved DC member Nudone and his Cody artwork, but I know he wouldn't mind if we had some alternative designs just to mix things up.

Sounds like a fun project. Ideas:
Cody on a coin. Like a Roman Emperor or full body. Laurel wreath optional. "D C C" on it. Different metal, (gold, silver, bronze, brass, lead). Coin phrase: 'birds of a feather', 'coin of the ml', 'avian emptor', 'in code we trust', 'in hoc signo'. 'pecking in order to'.

'Bar Cody' holding a beer mug. Cody shaking feathers with a Penguin or Turkey or Loon. Bird brained Cody with an Ostrich feather.

An old-fashioned style Cody rubber-stamp would be nice -
if anyone has the skill/software to create that

Is there a Cody vector available? Would make it easier to come up with something.

For Coding Snacks, I was thinking of a lunch truck (maybe in a hippy van sort of style), with Cody at the window, either as the vendor (inside the truck) or as the customer (standing on the outside, placing an order). Where a lunch truck would usually have the name of it displayed, above the window, it would say "Coding Snacks". Depending on how comical one would want to make it, the text above the window could be done to resemble sloppy hand painted letters.

I will try a T shirt design. My understanding is that the design should have few colors so I will try one in the style of Tiepolo. What dimensions or formats are best?
Possible style influence: Tiepolo, Daumier, Klee, Goya, Manet, Rembrandt, other.
Based on: watercolor, ink, charcoal, pastel.

Tshirt samples. Separate colors easily changeable.
