What is your favorite design from your shop to create - even if it is not a best seller? and why is it your favorite? *


I've loved the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy ever since I first read the books. When I got the idea to make a series of images featuring places to eat from science fiction books, Milliway's came to mind right away. In my mind, Milliway's has a 1950s tacky Palm Springs or Las Vegas feel, so I let mu imagination run wild with a Vegas neon sign.

I then thought of the tourist shirts that have a cheesy slogan, and again the idea came instantly: I had a Pan-Galactic Gargle Blaster at Milliway's -- and Lived.

I don't remember if Milliway's had a gift shop, but if they did, they would definitely sell these!

If you could get your item on any TV show - which item would it be and what show would it be on....and why??? *


I watch very little TV, but this is a shirt that could work on several geeky shows, such as Big Bang Theory, or any show with a science fiction theme. It makes me think of an old kid's show, Zoom, which featured kids exploring the world, doing interesting experiments, etc. The words around the false-color image of the sun, "The Sun is a mass Of incandescent gas" are from "The Sun Song" made popular by the group They Might be Giants.

This image is available on shirts for all ages and sizes, and a wide variety of other products.
