Camel & Spring Summer 2011

Spring/Summer 2011 is officially posted on Supermaggie  - Yay!!  We have nine new designs this time including Camels and Happy Flowers and 10,000 Circles.  We also have a bunch of new bodies and colors that our designs are printed on.

I thought it might be nice to do a little post on each of the new designs. So first up is the Camel.  Why a Camel - well why not?  The Camel (aka Herman named by Tara of Custard Boutique in Savannah who I believe just received a run of Camel shirts)  has been lingering in my sketchbook for a couple years now.  I decided he need to get out into the world so here he is.

Very awkward original drawing
Cleaned up and scanned into the computer then printed out as a transparency.
Screen for the Camel, inked up and ready to go.
We print the camel on a bunch of different tops and tees for women and men so check out Supermaggie to see all the options :)

It's Done! Well almost...

After an insane amount of hard work Michael has pretty much finished the new Supermaggie website.  We are in the process of debugging and editing a few things and we could use a little help.  If you have a few minutes check it out and shoot us an email if you find any bugs, if anything looks funky or doesn't load properly. We also posted our new spring line but more on that later.

Unfinshed Stuff in the Studio

A drawing and some paintings I've been working on, they are not finished yet but I think there is a t-shirt design here somewhere.

Around the shop.

A few pictures from around the printshop!  We have been printing like crazy for the past week to get our first batch of spring orders completed and out to your favorite local boutique.  What?  Your favorite local boutique doesn't carry Supermaggie - well tell them to get in touch!  I am super excited about the new prints and bodies we have this spring - we will be posting them soon on the website.  Michael has been hard at work rebuilding Supermaggie so it can be viewed on tablets and smartphones (the current site is in Flash) and we are thinking it will be done this week.  Fingers crossed.


Ink mixing table plus too many squeegees.

Roadtrip photos + POOL Tradeshow

Last week Michael and I drove to Las Vegas for POOL to show the Supermaggie spring line. We had a good show, saw some of our regular stores and picked up some new accounts.  I managed to not go outside for three days because the convention center is connected to the hotel.  It's like being on a giant airplane for three days.
Supermaggie booth!

View from our room at the Luxor.  I really don't like staying at casinos.

We saw this alien while passing through Roswell, NM

We saw the Hoover Dam from the new bypass.

We drove really fast across west Texas.

We saw some amazing sunsets.

Hello blog, let's try again.

Ok, it's been a long, long time but I though I might give this another shot. After I smashed my fingers in 2008 it was really hard to type so I kind of lost interest, then I forgot this blog existed.

We have had some pretty significant changes here at Supermaggie. Our beautiful wonderful sweet little dog Joe passed away unexpectedly last year and broke our hearts. After Mr. Joe died, Michael and I decided to move to Austin, TX, something we had talked about but had never gotten around to doing. We moved last summer and we love living in Austin very much.

Oh dear, it's been over a month.

We have been working really hard on a supermaggie update and it is finally done, well almost. After we comb for bugs it should be posted tonight or tomorrow! We are going to have some amazing one of a kind wallets and pouches from Slaughterhead and and bags from Chia plus a new batch of handmade felt scarves! We have been so behind this fall because of the hurricanes, my broken fingers and an inability to stop obsessing over the election ;)

Pictures of some of the new scarves!

In other news we had a mystery-t sale on supermaggie last week and there are a few items left at really great prices. We had years of t-shirt and top odds and ends piled up around the studio and it is a relief to send them to good homes - thanks to everyone that bought a few :) Also I have a box of wraps and t-shirts that I am going to dye, print hopefully post on supermaggie or maybe etsy soon.
