Hello. My name is Cean Irminger and I have a mild case of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. I think everybody has their own form of OCD, really. Whether it is counting steps, washing hands often, carrying a newt in your pocket, everybody has some sort of little glitch. Mine takes the form of drawing truckloads of comic book girls. It starts when I have drawer's block, I'll doodle out a girl to get the brain juices flowing, but then I have to draw out an evil counterpart, then I have to ink them in, and don't forget color, and Wham, it's hours later and I have a pile of useless drawings and my original project has been forgotten. I have hundreds of these dames living in a box under my bed, so when this competition came up I thought, what the hey, I'll pick forty or so and actually do something with them. So here they are, flaunting their spandex and fishtails. Enjoy it while you can, ladies, because you're going back under the bed tomorrow, soon to be covered by hundreds more like you. Anyhow, that's my confession, judge me if you will.

These are SOOO gorgeous! I see these in a sweeping cape or duster coat! Cotton twill or silk!

I was thinking -find the perfect tie patern - set the babes inside the pattern the way best suited - he he he - and inside photoshop, lay out the diagonal digital file so you have / / / / / / / ties in a row ready to cut out and sew up so that the printing(design and pattern) is on a diagonal to match the fabric's weave. I really love the sateen and buy it often.

My husband tells me that some of his ties are backed with a very fine wool; and he thinks that might work to make the sateen suitable, hehehe. Liked your funny. Can Spoonflower tilt a design to the diagonal or would it have to be uploaded that way. I'm sure it could be tilted in Photoshop.
I admit, never once tied a tie.... So, I was hoping sateen would be suitable - HA! MADE A FUNNY!
Hey V! But - that 's what is sooo coool about SF! ~~~~ PRINT ON THE DIAGONAL!!!! It's like magic man! MAGIC!
I've made mens ties, not easy; and, very important to take into consideration, cut on the diagonal. Also, cotton doesn't tie very well; too bad Spoonflower doesn't offer silk.
Ha! I'm afraid if I went to Comicon I may never leave. It's a little too good of a fit for me, truth be told. though I tell myself I'm just ironically liking all of the dorky things I like, it's not true. I love nerdy things! thanks for the hints on how I may be able to actually market this weirdo of a pattern, guys. ties and kitschy shirts are fab ideas!
This would also make a great hawaiian-shirt pin-up-esque style shirt for some smiley guys out there.
You really should go to comicon and pimp out your ladies for sale!
Cotton sateen, men's fashion tie, with the babes at about 1.3" tall... I offer to sew them up for sale on eTsy!
I was thinking miniskirt in cotton sateen or the linen cotton blend, myself, but church skirt, hm... now I see it as an altar cloth in a feminist Episcopalian or Wiccan church. Women power!
thank you so much, Feebeedee! I was thinking the same thing, taking the borders off, that is. I think it would be a fun skirt( but probably not a church skirt, seeing as how it's crammed full of half naked ladies and devilish dames) :)
This is great! It would make a great quilt center, or, after the contest you should change the outside border to make it a repeatable fabric so someone can do the whole back of a quilt, skirt, bag, cotton lawn pajamas, whatever. :o) It kind of reminds me of The Incredibles, but it's definitely got it's own style. Love it!
Thanks so much, ms_corona for your vote of confidence! I may still come in last, but thanks to you it won't be last with only one vote! I will probably put it up for sale to be used for ...something. I don't really think it's baby blanket material, so maybe I'll corner the comic book reading tween wall covering market.
But, I voted for you, a cheater cheater quilt or nay - so you at least have one vote! I admit that I voted for 23! (!) this round, never voted for so many before and I don't get the whole "I got loads of time on my hands to quilt" thingie... Are you going to make it up for sale? It's a great wall hanging!
Brilliant - again - c'mon - do a rubbish one. Dare you. Best of luck, loving your OCD'd ladies xxx
Thanks so much, everybody! Yay, Uzumakijo! It's so nice to find another Heroine addict! Your robogirl was awesome and reminded me that I had all of these ladies, all dressed up with no where to go. After looking at some other entries, I'm not sure that mine is technically a cheater quilt, so I'll probably come in last, and that's okay. Teaches me to skim through the instructions!
These are SO SO awesome!
I don't know where they find the time to work out or get their hair coiffed, but those chicks are monstrously toned and medusa-doed to perfection. They'd make for a great mood chart: 'Today I'm feeling cheeky and likely to spit fire!'
hahaha cean, i don't believe it - we have the same problem, i also draw a lot of comic book girls when i'm supposed to be working on something completely different, my robot entry was a reworked drawing of a girl with mad medusa snake hair i'd done the previous week when i was supposed to be drawing unicorns for the medieval design haha - thats how my entries are always last minute except the robot one which was 2 days early lol! of course we do differ slightly in that i never bother colouring mine and yours are about 100 times better than mine haha. other than that, snap!!! obviously i'm loving your entry and i wish you the best of luck!!!
We should all have such productive neuroses. Fabulous!
The illustrations are absolutely fabulous, but I especially love your title.
Thank you, DecoBot and Lulakiti! I was afraid everybody would hate this entry, but I did it anyway for my own satisfaction. And it's not an imagination, decobot, it's a neurosis!
That is quite the collection of colorful ladies! Its pretty exciting to see them all together like that. You have a great imagination!
here's a few more, ready for their close-ups.
ceanirminger uploaded a fabric image for
Addicted to Heroines :
here's a couple of the duos for a little more detail.
Is it possible, Cean, for you to post some closeups on Flickr? I too would love to see a closer view of some of these ladies!
Wonderful fun. I wish there was a zoom button!
OMIGOD! I LOVE THIS!
