HenryVTablet1I see you stand like greyhounds in the slips,
Straining upon the start. The game’s afoot:
Follow your spirit, and upon this charge
Cry, ‘God for Harry, England, and Saint George!’

The bag depicts a minimalist version of Tom Hiddleston’s Henry V, as portrayed in “The Hollow Crown”, and is stitched on off white cotton canvas with contrasting black strapping

Our Tablet / Netbook bags have an interior measurement of 12″ wide by 9″ tall and 3.5″ deep. They feature a wide elastic band against the back wall, to hold your iPad, netbook, or other electronics securely in place while leaving room for other items in front.

Funicular du Vieux-Quebec. I was going to use a pic I took when I was there in 1988, but I seem to be rubbish about saving photos that old, and can't find them.....

Here’s a thing you may not know. I don’t care how much you love your job, or how much you enjoy what you do. I don’t care if you work for yourself or for somebody else. Your brain WILL go into vacation mode a full week before the vacation actually begins.

That’s where I am today. I know I have orders to fill before we leave, and I’m working on it, I swear! But all I can think about is Quebec City, and what we’ll see and what we’ll do, and what should I pack? And the things to not forget. Full on vacation mode.

So, I thought reminding all of you that this was imminent was a good idea! We will still be accepting orders while we’re gone from August 28 through September 4, but obviously we won’t be filling them until we get back.  The next six days will be spent madly prepping every order that comes in between now and then, so that hopefully we’ll have nothing hanging over our heads while we’re gone, so if you want something in a rush, get it ordered now!

YellowSign1Our latest bookmark is a bit of a mashup, combining the Yellow Sign from Lovecraft’s King in Yellow with the line from Shakespeare’s Hamlet – The play’s the thing. (Trust me. If you know the King in Yellow, this is brilliant!)

It is said that simply looking at the warped triskelion known as the Yellow Sign, the sigil of Hastur and his avatar, the King in Yellow, is enough to drive one mad. We don’t believe that will happen if you use this bookmark, but we make no promises.

This new bookmark is available both in our Etsy shop, and on our website.

AnkhToday’s new item is more properly an improvement on an item we were already offering.  Previously, we had done this ankh as a stand-alone patch, without a separate border. However, we were never able to get the corners QUITE as neat as we would have liked them, and we felt that the quality wasn’t really up to our usual standards. So we decided to try setting it in an oval instead, and the results are stunning! I love the way the gold and silver colors stand out against the black background, and the quality of the patch as a whole is many times better than our original ankh patch was.

This patch is available in our Etsy shop, and also on our website.

CartoonistCharles Schultz. Bill Watterson. Berke Breathed. Gary Larson. Great creators. Great artists. Great cartoonists.

The art form may look childish on its surface, but never underestimate a cartoonist’s skill as an artist — or his or her power to entertain, educate, and enlighten.

This new design depicts the artist at work, laying inks over his non-repro-blue rough sketch and, to add a bit of extra whimsy, places the title of this Geek Merit Badge inside a word balloon. It is available as a patch in our Etsy shop and on our website, and as a sticker on Redbubble.
