This one I'd buy immediately, if and when available :-*

 :D

Should I design some more in this style?

Criticize, correct or suggest away. I'm not 'sensitive'.  ;D

My understanding is that the design should have few colors

Not entirely true...

Cafe Press, which is where the DC mugs and T-shirts come from, does great full color printing. The only real issue is the color white on most things that have a base color. Instead of coming up white, it lets the color of the item show through. I have a gray sweat jacket with the left half of this Cody image on it (from 2008), and everything that is white, including Cody, is gray.

Thanks. I could make any next designs using pale yellow or something. Others are doing a better job. I have only owned two, plain dark green sweat shirts and know almost nothing about them  :)

Photoshop. One color, a warm orange-brown (226 - 199 - 115). Layers: 40% transparent line sketch above a couple of layers for lighter and darker 'washes' and above a mid-tone fill layer. The 'washes' were about 15% to 30% transparent blurry edge brushes. It is fast to do. Daumier liked combining ink, charcoal and transparent watercolor for a fresh 'sketch' look.

I really, really like this! Did you draw it with a mouse?

Thanks. I'm glad you both liked it. More to come. Drawn with a two-button mouse, Logitech model M-CAA42.

Sword, if you make a Cody image that is 1662x600 pixels, I will have a mug made and sent to you.  You can have it say whatever you want.
