I'm taking a BIG risk, (on a printer quality perspective) but this is well worth it! I've always done sign designs for Warrior games using Vector images. Using Adobe Illustrator, the final product is crisp and clear free from pixels and fuzziness. But this... I had to do it on Photoshop, make sure the resolution was calibration settings were perfect and I had to rep it right. Yea, it'll be a little pixelated and blurry but at 19x24 in size... this'll do the job during opening night. Stephen Curry and Anthony Randolph are 2 Warriors I am really excited about. What better way to start the season than with a classic cover from Eric B. and Rakim redesigned for Warrior Fans. Don't forget to holler opening night at the Oracle, it's GSoM Night 7 and I'm mad stoked!

Welcome to Golden State Stephen!
I had fun with this idea during the summer but the file resolution was too low to make as a sign so I redrew it on Illustrator and added a few team mates. I'll see you all opening night (GSoM Night 7) tomorrow with this new signage. Kick back, relax and enjoy some NBA Basketball, it's gonna be a great time out! Lookin' forward to seeing everyone, don't forget to say what's up!

Kobe Bryant's nickname to Stephen Jackon... "YOUNG FELLA" ...and all hell broke lose!
I'm a big Stephen Jackson fan and I'm not ashamed to say it. The guys ALWAYS been super nice to my wife and I off the court and has always given me his approval of my work. On the court, since his arrival and the following season after that, he always brought a sense of excitement that made me want to cheer for the guy. Yea last season was shaky but I had always been a fan. With all this trade talk, its a shame... I just wanna see him play, but things change. I don't hate the dude but this parody explains it all... Let's get it: Trade Motivation 101. (Trade him, and lets move on)

Wow... on the real, I take this blogging business seriously! It hasn't even been a year and I've come up with 200 posts. I love it. Having a "blog" where you can share new and refreshing design idea's. It's super easy to maintain and it gives me more time to get creative than worry about broken html links, etc. Plus, it's given me the chance to network with some of the most inspiring and creative people from all over the world. "Blogging with Tony.psd" gives me the chance to express myself and share the different projects I have the opportunity to work with. Whether it's with good folks over at Kingdom 209 or Bomb Hip-Hop... You know I get busy on the daily with Golden State of Mind over at SB Nation and almost anybody with a great idea I'm willing to work with. Thanks for letting me share my world with you all... here's to 200 more posts!

From left to right... original flavor via X-Ecutioners (left) flipped for the Golden State community! (right)
Out of all the Photoshop parodies I've done for Golden State... THIS is my favorite. I wouldn't represent our team any other way. Plus, I'm all drained out reading about Stephen Jackson, this is what I'm looking forward to... All these guys right here on the court!

Torn between color comps... Oakland or San Francisco? Reverted colors?
I'm running low on my first stack of business cards purposely reppin' The Warriors City Colors! With reprints on order I'm torn between San Francisco and Oakland MLB based colors LOL. This shouldn't be an issue... oh well, lets see if my printer will go with half options! Personally, I'm feeling the Oakland yellow and green! Happy Saturday ya'll.

Out of my entire summer collection, my original "Back to the Hotel" shirt was my favorite. It was a recognizable piece that threw people off and had folks chuckling at the parody. I loved the colors and the classic 80's vibe it set off. For the upcoming Xmas rush, I was planning on reprinting the now sold out original. It had me thinking "why not do up a sequel?" It wouldn't hurt, It's the same shirt but with "Part II" stamped on it... sort of like a 2nd printing. Plus the logo's a little bigger in height so we all get our moneys worth. I'm not expecting folks to pick up this one after getting the first one. I'm just shaking up the print run... how often can folks say they made a sequel out of their first design, LOL...

It's a day early on my blog... premiers on GSoM tomorrow! Enjoy!
It's become a tradition over at Golden State of Mind that I honor our Warriors team alongside our favorite NBA basketball game, The 2K Basketball Series with a variant cover for our loyal fans. We've been doing this for 3 seasons now. For this season, 2K Sports let fans custom create their own covers to this years 2K10 series. The last 2 seasons, I had to scrape, cut and paste a convincing looking cover. This season, you can grab a high-res photoshop template with the whole cover in Photoshop layers. All you need to do is paste in your favorite player. (folks got it made easy!)I've seen a handful of beautiful pieces I couldn't even compete with but appreciate tremendous respect and I've seen a handful of cut and paste jobs that weren't as exciting as others.
For me, I just wanna do my thing and have fun with an idea we tried out 3 seasons ago that people seem to enjoy. I didn't treat this like work... it was all fun and that's what it's all about! I know there are some issues with Monta, but he seems to be one of our driving forces right now, hence the cover spotlight. I wanted to do a Curry or Randolph spotlight but there just isn't enough hi-res material out there for me to use. (I'll get em' next year!) I also threw in a second cover with our Bigs on deck (Ronny, Anrdis, Anthony and Brandon) for some added fun and flavor. Anyways, you know the drill, each cover is print ready and yours to enjoy. Just copy it on your desktop and print away... for FREE! Enjoy, T.psd.

One of my favorite parts of a new shirt release is physically getting the shirts, folding them and preparing them to ship out. I don't wanna just throw em' in a bag and dump it in the mail box. I like em' sealed for freshness so when it gets to the persons spot, it doesn't look like it was just given to them. Anyways, the shirts ship out Saturday morning, and it isn't to late to com em' from me- all sizes are available! (2XL sold out, sorry)
