Year in review: The second half of 2012...

August 2012 I found myself out of luck with my business. Some costly mistakes and lack of inspiration on my part. I was ready to call it quits and close shop. Than my wife told me "don't give up, you're doing this to have fun remember?" Those kind words had me excited again. During the month of August I penciled, scribbled and jotted down new ideas to jumpstart my passion again. The goal: 10 new designs based on personal interests and favorites. Nothing offensive of "controversial." Just a bunch of fun designs.

Now we didn't hit 10 total design but I had fun releasing 8, 4 of which hit multiple reprint numbers. We found new fan bases, our loyal customers returned and many folks were happy with my new designs. I've never been more happier and excited about Tony.psd. It was a lot of hard work pumping everything I had back into the business, and to you, my loyal friends, family and customers - thank you. 2013 is gonna be great. Thanks for a strong finish to 2012!

"Dub the Vote:" Stephen Curry vector art

Shop Local: Tony.psd Design Studio events (recap)

My design studio is rarely open to the public unless an appointment is made to meet since I started my new "day job" this past June. During the holiday shopping season that started on Black Friday to the last weekend prior to Christmas, I held 2 events: "Small Business Saturday" & a "Design Studio Event" (held this past Saturday, 12/22) It gave friends, family and customers alike to visit my studio, partake in some snacks (pizza, wings & other tasty treats), converse on similar interests like shirt designs, comic books, toys and the Walking Dead tv show lol. It also gave folks a chance to pick up shirts locally and save on shipping long with a few other perks.

Both events went very well. It felt real good interacting with customers that enjoy my designs and I was happy to have helped cross off a few names in their Christmas lists. From the bottom of my heart, thank you again for all your support! -Tony.psd

Photo set: SJ All Day (second shoot)

Like my "Dubs All Day" design I decided to do a second shoot with my "Sharks" inspired tee "SJ All Day" to help keep the promotions fresh with new photos. What's crazy is with the NHL strike no where close to a resolution, this design has done well without a season at hand. This time around, I've added an assortment of hats and a new beanie I recently got at as a present from my wife to compliment my design. We even included a hockey stick for some added flavor.

I've been organizing photo shoots for 3 years now & I will say its really fun adding these little props as to just having the shirt design on hand. Definitely a fun shoot with Mark, Joyce, Nate & Chris!

Photo set: Dubs All Day (second shoot)

Since the start of the season I've gone through 2 small print runs of my Warriors inspired tee "Dubs All Day" for fans. With the Dubs going on a win streak and their best start in years, promoting my design has been heavy. While I was happy with the handful of pics I did with Jackie & Chris when the design first released I decided to do a second shoot with Joyce (and dig up a few of Chris's from the last shoot)to keep the promoting fresh. A third printing drops this week with all sizes restocked. (men's size sm - 3xl)

Available at: www.tonypsd.bigcartel.com

Photo set: B3ast Mode

Pics taken from my past "Ghost Ride the Beast" shoot with Mark Matias as photographer. "Beast Mode" has been reprinted for the first time in over a year and a half. When this first dropped, I never did a reprint and it sold out within the first week of it's release. No sports color ways this time, this drops strictly for the gamers, the way it was meant to be paying tribute to a special Sega Genesis classic with a similar type case.

Photo set: Ghost Ride the Whip

New pics from my "Ghost Ride the Whip" photo shoot taken 2 weeks ago. Photographed by Mark Matias and modeled by my friends Joyce & Nate. "Ghost Ride the Whip" - In the tradition of my bay area/hip-hop inspired Game Recognize Game & Back to the Hotel mash-up designs, here's another Bay Area Hip-Hop quotable from legendary Emcee E-40 mashed up with the "Spirit of Vengeance" type case.

Bloopers: SFSJ photo shoot preview.

A few more fun pics from last weeks SF/SJ All Day series shoot. We added a few more props for this shoot like baseball bats, hockey sticks and a random orange panda hat I found at the Giants Dug Out store in Valley Fair. Good times, Joyce & Chris came through with some great pics... these a just a few of what happened in between takes. Enjoy!

Warriors: "DUB TLC" illustration

An oldie but goodie updated for our Golden State Warriors 2012-13 season! Social media is running wild with all these fun parody designs of David Lee's "WCW" (white Chris Webber) nickname and now comes all the TLC references to Thompson, Lee & Curry. I wanted to drop some creativity on my part with a "DUB TLC" illustrating poking fun of our current roster with a touch of Run DMC flavor. More to come, enjoy!

Who's house? DUBS House!"

Warriors: David Lee aka "WCW"

For laughs... Shaq recently coined Warriors forward David Lee as "WCW" aka the "White Chris Webber." Had some fun with this growing up as a big wrestling fan. Wooooooo! Warriors Basketball!

Photo set: Stay Paid.

More pics from this weeks photo shoot: “Stay - Nation” (Stay Paid & The Nation… designs) The message behind the design pays tribute to J.Dilla and my favorite Hip-Hop duo EPMD. For me, it’s do what you love, earn a living, put food on a table & a roof over your families head:“STAY PAID.”

My newest design "Stay Paid" has been a personal project invested in both my time & money. It doesn't have the shock value or an offensive approach like my past designs. It's a shout out to Hip-Hop heads familiar with the sounds of J.Dilla and the classic typecase treatment paying tribute to EPMD. Do what you love, earn a living, put food on a table & a roof over your head: "STAY PAID."
