Freestyle design with GIMP (GNU Image Manipulation Program)

Sometimes when the pressure of creating a t-shirt design is just too much, I like to freestyle create using GIMP (no, you perverts, not that gimp, I’m talking about the poor man’s Photoshop.)  I found these on my computer and realized they are from a while ago before I knew what I was doing (not that I really know what I’m doing now).

Ballad of the Whiskey Robber

Hands down this has to be one of the most enjoyable books I have ever read. What makes it even more incredible is that is actually happened.

Check out the author’s website @ Julian Rubenstein

The main character Attila Ambrus is still in prison. You can check out
his myspace page here @ Attila Ambrus on MySpace

Oh, and did I happen to mention I sell a couple t-shirts inspired by the book?

The King

A picture of Elvis taken when he visited Nixon in the White House. I applied an oil painting effect using GIMP. This photo was on Wikimedia commons listed in the public domain, however your use of this image is subject to copyright laws that may apply to the estates of both Elvis and Nixon. Hey, I don’t make the rules, I just try to follow them.

Cold or hot spam hits the spot!

I can honestly say, I have never tried SPAM once in my life. But this picture makes it actually look pretty good. (make sure you turn off your spam filter so you can view this image…)
