One of my goals for a while has been to design my own mug, and get a commercial outfit such as tiki farm to take the design and sell it.

Well, I was thinking about this the other day, and I realised my pirate tiki was a mug in the making. So I did up some design sketches.

The original art piece:


The mug design I came up with:


Im not sure about the back, but I thought I would throw it out there as something different.

What do you think? Would you buy one of these mugs? How does tiki farm work their deals with artists whose designs they use?

Any advice and feedback will be greatly appreciated.

I second that, and maybe try for pierced ears? I know Tiki Farm has made mugs with piercings so it's do-able.

Thanks for the feedback peoples!

Ill sketch up another with a bandana lid and big hoop earings. I simplified the design for mug producing capabilities.

The treasure is found when you raise the mug to your lips

Not only is that a sperm whale - its a guard whale. He protects the treasure from those who are not worthy of finding its expensive loot.

I managed to negotiate a deal with a parrot wrangler. I think it would look better sitting on the "TE" in pirate though. Like its sitting on the shoulder of the text. That supposed to be pirate hat and patch on the parrot too.
