Final Threadless/Marvel submits for 2016

My final 5 submits for the Threadless/Marvel tee shirt contest. Here's: Hellcat, Spider-Man (Black Costume), Ghost Rider, The Green Goblin and Dr. Octopus.  

I think I did about 30 of these for 2016.  I'll continue this series with other characters for years to come- don't know if I can keep up the 2016 pace! As always, much more work to do, --Lance

Abraham Lincoln- Gettysburg Address

I'm a huge history fan/nutjob/crazyperson. Always have been. I'm constantly reading biographies, non-fiction books, Wikipedia, history websites and watching documentaries.  It's a little crazy to say the least.  My favorite person in history (by far) is Abraham Lincoln.  While looking at pictures from Matthew Brady & Alexander Gardner I started this piece back in February (Mr. Lincoln's birthday month)  I noticed how much he aged from 1857 to 1864.  I think we know why.  He had a stressful job.  Anyway, I combined these pictures and here's what I came up with.  I worked on it all year and finished it in time for the 153rd anniversary of The Gettysburg Address. 

Threadless Pictures, Cotton Bureau/Pinterest, etc

Well, I'm still dancing over my first Threadless print.  6 years of work and submitting pieces to them- and then to win a Marvel, Spider-Man contest? I'm knocked over to say the least. Here's what it looks like on their website.  Yes I took lots of screen shots.

Also, as I'm want to do- I'll Google image search myself.  Last week I stumbled upon a tee shirt I did last year for Cotton Bureau and found it on someone's Pinterest board!  Talk about a happy accident!  Yes, another screen shot.
