The first design I submitted (pictured below) was scrapped because the cards couldn't do full-bleed and it was a little too comic book-y for the store (which carries a lot more than comic books). My intention was to use the cropped comic as just a way of better integrating the store's name and atomic logo, but I can totally understand why it didn't work out. The thing I drew for Strand was mentioned as a new reference point, so the final ended up sort of rhyming with that.
"Rhyming"! I really just wrote that. That Annie Wu, what a douche. Anyway, I'm not sure when the cards with my design will be available, but I'll be sure to do another post when I find out.
In other news, I've opened up commenting to more users. I think a Google or Blogger account used to be required, but now OpenID and LJ and Wordpress and a few others are supported. Yay. Oh, I also desaturated my entire site design because even dark purple eventually felt like too much color for me. So if you want to go look... Do it.
