If your softball team seems to be mired in mediocrity and nursing a 2 and 8 record, there really is only one solution to be had - new uniforms. In between jobs last week and general paying gigs, I put together a new t-shirt design in hopes of a more productive finish to the season and a play-off berth. Thanks to a design by cousin James last season, we led the league in fashionable t-shirts, and I'm hoping with my contribution this year we can at least be a reigning dynasty in well-outfitted-ness.
P.S. - If you're in the Williamsburg/Bushwick area, go check out the Archive! It's great place runs by great people.

Another one for Rachel Perkins at the LV Sun. Jim Gibbons, the current governor of Nevada and political maverick/constitutionally confused whackjob has just become the fist incumbent governor to lose the primary in the state's history. Thus not being allowed to even run for his office against his democratic counterpart, he is now a stupendously lame duck - thus the overly large duck transport vehicle. I had a lot of fun on this one. Gibbons has a perfectly square head that's really fun to draw, and since I rode an overly large hollowed out water fowl to school for six years of roughest years of my life, I was happy to rock one here. I'll leave you with this quote - “Racial profiling should be for terrorism. If you look like and act like a terrorist, if you’re coming across as a bad person, you’re going to do harm to our citizens, whether it’s deal drugs, commit crime or commit a terrorist act. Absolutely we ought to profile everybody that looks like a terrorist. I don’t have a problem with that. But if they want to have a racial profile of Irishmen, then I’m going to question that.” - Soon to be former governor, Jim Gibbons (R).

Had a fun job for the super nice Rachel Perkins at the Las Vegas Sun last week about the Senate race Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is struggling in. Basically, all of Reid's attacks have been aimed at Sue Lowden, while Sharron Angle has toiling away in relative safety and is now surging in the Republican Primary polls. This one actually made the Newseum Top Ten Front Pages of the day which was pretty cool. If you're a news nerd like me, the Newseum in D.C. is a pretty interesting concept.
