Jesse’s Glowfish BTS – Pt.3

And here are Jesse’s final Illustrator versions. We really liked the final version of these designs. But, like a lot of the collaboration designs they had a little too much detail for embroidery.

So we simplified the design but tried to keep it’s same character. And instead of having the detail in different colors we opted for Clink’s signature embroidery detail. Here’s the final Illustrator version and the stitch instructions showing off those scales.

Tomorrow morning we’ll preview the hat. Tomorrow night at 9PM PST Midnight EST the hat will be go on sale.

Jesse’s Glowfish BTS – Pt.2

Check these great sketches torn straight from the pages of Jesse’s sketchbook. I love how full of personality these are. You don’t need to have tight sketches to get you to the point where you’re ready to go into Illustrator.

I also love the differences between the different triggerfish. Some are smaller with more cartoony attributes. Some are big and ominous. And the “BD” is a cool idea. Great work Jesse, again sketches remain my favorite part of these collaborations.

We Like Bier & Walbats.

This was sent to me by Clinker Anton of Germany. He and his buddies have a show were they drink beer and wear awesome Clink hats. Well, Anton wears Clink hats at least. Anyone speak German? Nevermind, I think I can guess what they’re talking about. Bier and being awesome.

Thanks Anton! Next week, behind-the-scenes of Jesse’s great hat the Glowfish. It’s a beaut! Kick this weekend’s ass Clinker’s!
