My Designs on Zazzle
Besides client work, I have developed a growing number of designs at Zazzle. These customized graphics are available on custom products in the Thoughts and Design Store in the Zazzle Marketplace. You’ll find my graphics on products such as t-shirts, mugs, labels, bumper stickers and more.
