Coffee with a Butt

Hey Everyone!  In case any of you have missed my #buttsonthings drawings I am posting every Friday on my Instagram account I have decided to turn one into a t-shirt design for the latest Threadless + Coffee design challenge!  If the design is selected to print I will stand to win $1,000 and it will be printed as a shirt!  Let’s add a few more butts to the world!

Teeny Press: Series 2 is here!

Great news!  I’ve been at it once again with my miniature printing press! I will be launching 3 new food pairs through this year!  The first 50 sets of “Rolls” and “Salty” are already printed and ready to order!  Remember that they are limited to only 200 hand-made prints by me and after that the plates will be destroyed and they will never be printed again!  If you can a set be sure to order yours NOW!

Order on Etsy!

If you want to check out process videos and read more about the project head over to teenypress.com.

Here’s a little preview of the prints
