Squash's Stash

By ursulav
92 Favourites
I have all the graphic design skills of an injured nudibranch. However, I had the line-art for the chibi squash piece anyway, and I was fooling around in Photoshop, and I came up with this label for a fictional tea (although if there was a brand called "Red Wombat" I'd be all over it!)

Since I have no design skills whatsoever, and really wish I did--there's some artists with very strong graphical skills that blow me outta the water--I should really practice stuff like this more, if I ever want to develop them, although that means you, O viewer, would have to suffer through the Hundred Multicolored Abuses of A Squash, and I'm not a cruel woman by nature. But--Squash! c'mon! Squash! (On a largely unrelated note, this is the first thing I've ever posted in "Pop Art." Madness! Utter madness!)

Also, I think Earl Grey is the only one of those I'd drink. I'm not really a fan of the fruity teas. Except maybe Lemon Zinger.

Prints are available, small and jumbo for $10 and $20, plus shipping, 'cos c'mon, who wouldn't want Squash-themed tea labels in the kitchen? Drop a note, visit [link]

"...the Hundred Multicolored Abuses of A Squash..."

Haha, genius!
I love the designs, excellent work. I don't know a whole lot about graphic design, but they look pretty good to me.

your "artist's comments" are pretty much always as good as your art itself! you cheer me up ^_^ i'd totally buy this tea, by the way.

I think that half the fun of this picture is looking at it without any context and wondering just *where* it came from.

I wouldn't mind having to "suffer through" more work like this :D
Also, besides the fruity teas, there are also cinnamon flavored teas and the like, why don't you try one of those?

Love the labels, I'd buy the tea just for that. Out of interest, what's the font you used for Squash's stash?

I like very much the chosen fonts. I think they fit brilliantly with the drawing's lines, they're both very morbid.

I thought the writing under presents was arabic, and then like a cloud becoming a pony or Cthulhu eating a kettle I realised it says Squash's Stash. I feel silly.

But nudibranchs are COOL! And also multicolored. :)

This would be one of the teas that I'd buy due to the packaging alone. Those injured neutebranchs must be a talented bunch if they produce stuff like this. Nice work!

Mm, earl grey. Pass it over! Hell, I'd FOUND Red Wombat if I had that kinda money. Just for you!

.. And for me, because hey, tea sells well.
