Week of May 23rd, 2016 | I Choose My Own Path + Is It The Weekend Yet?!

You're only seconds away from shutting down your computer at work, grabbing your sunglasses and beach bag to head down to the beach or hang out pool side with some friends ALL weekend long. Mmmm...I can smell the grilled hamburgers and sun tan lotion already. 

Before you get your relaxation vibe going on, check out what's been going on this week in the studio and my new T-shirt release.

My quote t-shirts have become pretty popular and they are my absolute favorite designs to come out of my studio.  So popular in fact, that I've received requests for certain characters and even to combine some that I've already done. This week I decided to go with Finn, from The Force Awakens, to add to my series. "I Choose My Path" was based off of Finn's story of being taken as a little boy and trained to be a stormtrooper, FN-2187. His path essentially being decided for him. After the battle on Jakku, FN-2187's faith was shaken after witnessing the blood shed and his friend FN-2003's death.

"I'm done with the First Order. I'm never going back."

―Finn[src]

Finn makes the decision to leave The First Order and pursue his own path.  I think a lot people can relate to this character in the sense most of us grow up, being lead on a path that we think is right, and later realizing we have the control to make our life what it is. We all can choose our own path.

"I Choose My Path" is now available on my Teepublic shop in a variety of styles and colors. The best part is that it's on sale all weekend long too. So when you're lounging around the pool or getting buried in the sand, check out my shop on your phone and get this awesome new shirt for a great deal! 

Next week I'll be releasing a new T-shirt design that was requested by an awesome fan from the UK, Emma! I know she'll be super excited once its released. 

Speaking of the UK, don't forget July is Star Wars Celebration in London! If you missed your chance to celebrate in person this year, don't worry. Next year's tickets are already on sale for Star Wars Celebration in Orlando, FL.

Also make sure to follow me on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter. Next week is my birthday week and I've already got a few special gifts that I'm showing off. Like this one:

Sorry for the short post this week, but I'm ready to start off my Memorial Day Weekend. Also remember this weekend just isn't about BBQ's and sun. It's a day to remember and honor our fallen heroes. Please look up ways you can honor our veterans in your community this weekend before you fire up the grill.

And as always, May the Force be with You!
