Always a good time with Uni Watch

What is a Uni Watcher?

To quote Mr. Lucas a Uni Watcher is

One who dedicates themselves to the finer points of sports uniforms in obsessive and excruciating detail. It’s not about fashion — it’s about documenting and maintaining the visual history of sports design, and about minutiae fetishism as its own reward.

A Uni Watch can be many things not the least of which is a literal Uni Watch…  you know of the tick, tick, tick variety. So with tongue firmly in cheek we present the Uni Watch analog(ish) digital version.

UPDATE

Shameless Plug: Mr. Lucas reminds me that he has a real world version of this watch face available for sale here.

Amsterdam City Scenes

Nothing better than after a long ride cycling through the city is to …. find a place to park. This is pretty much the norm and not bad at all. This city, full of colorful homes, canals and bridges, is one of Europe’s most picturesque capitals.

“Some tourists think Amsterdam is a city of sin, but in truth it is a city of freedom. And in freedom, most people find sin.”
John Green, The Fault in Our Stars

Must-sees on any visitor’s itinerary include the Anne Frank House, the Van Gogh Museum and the world’s only floating flower market. Rent a bike and join thousands of locals navigating Amsterdam’s labyrinthine streets, or just take in the sights on foot

Welcome my imaginary friends to the redesign of the site.  Just what the web needed!

Welcome again, yes we have a redesign, with extra user interface action (in theory). Once again I hope to present the things that I find necessary.. work samples, artwork for clients then and now showing the best that I can muster.

 “It is my intention to add my bit to the world wide web, that although not unique… may be worthy of your attention.”

More than anything I want to share the art and images that I find worthy of a second look. To my friends and soon to be friends I again say “Howdy”! I am looking forward to putting the best that I can muster here. Or at least what I think is the best. Okay mebbe someone’s idea of craptastic but who cares.

So here we go… I want to thank all of my imaginary friend in the world wide web who viewed the first post and offered to give me… art lessons.

Interlink, you are a cruel mistress.

George and Cindy (Updated)

This is artwork for a good friend who is getting her Beatles on.  A lifetime fan of the late great George Harrison, I thought she would find this tribute to the bands original cartoon show with her dancing along would be a keeper, now updated and completed.  Thanks for your patience.

Uni-Watch Man

Here is a t-shirt concept for the Uni-Watch blog site.  A website that obsesses itself with the the obsession of things uniform. Sportswise that is.  Pointing out uniform oddities, rarities and downright uglies from the wide, weird world of sports merchandise.   We are living in a golden age of sports, literally, and the clothes & kitch they shill spill over to literally the entire real world. Ask any kid from Bolivia who sports a Carolina Panthers super bowl 50 championship shirt.

This artwork features a character that bears a striking resemblance, although a much hipper one I might add, of the “Minute Man”,  the Union 76 Oil Companies “Madmen Age of Advertising” character.  He is dapper in wearing his baseball gear with the appropriate amount of stirrup showing. Trust me, the peeps in the Uni-verse would notice.
