Gallant Designs comprises of two 4th year Graphic Design students, Adam (that’s me) and Cody who currently live in the beautiful and always eventful central Iowa where we herd cattle and in our free time design t-shirts and iPhone cases that we thought may interest the wonderful people of Tumblr.

We all have our fandoms that we dedicate countless hours to, but for the most part, we came to realize that the shirts that we wanted to wear weren’t being produced for the most part, and if they were, they weren’t very cute. But then we had a revelation! Why wait around for someone else to make them, when we could do the work ourselves…we are design students after all.
Sailor Moon R Part 1 Redux
Just over a year ago, I created my second Sailor Moon print in which I intended to create about 10 total.  It was chronological, and covered the Doom Tree saga found in the first half of the second season.  I spent a whole lot of time on it (a whole lot) and, in the moment, was happy with how it looked.  Now here we are a year later, and instead of moving on to the surely exciting Wicked Lady stuff, I have been sitting and stewing on how much I hated that poster. 
The colors were all over the place.  The ghostly Moonlight Knight and Sailor Moon looked tacked on and completely out of place (they were).  The haphazard array of secondary colors did not evoke DOOM TREE, but more so LISA FRANK.   
I finally had a moment last night were I took a moment (or a few hours) and Ironed out all of the issues I had been having.  
So here I present, the new and improved print.  It takes everything I loved about the first version, and makes into something much more powerful and beautiful.  The Doom Tree arc may have been some weird-ass filler, but it didn’t lack the emotionally charged punch that I have come to expect from my Sailor Moon.  
Prints and Cases available at redbubble

And for those of you who have been waiting a year, I am already working on the next in the set.  I have sketches! It will happen.  I kind of took a break from design over the summer, because after working in design all day I just wanted to be lazy and play video games.  But now that fall is in full swing, I have been working diligently each day.  Expect big things! (Or expect little and get pleasantly surprised)

NEW shirts uploaded to the shop!

If you follow my personal/art blog, you know that I started making these pokemon icons a few weeks ago with the intent of making all 150.  As predicted by me, I did not quite make it, stopping at 15….so close.  However, I really liked these, so I thought it would still be a nice shirt design.  

You can find them on our redbubble shop in classic black, white, and some cute colors here, here, and here. Let me know if any of you guys are interested in phone cases.  I can make that happen as well.

I have some other thing in the works, hopefully you will hear about them by the end of the week!

Momentai everyone!

Here is the first piece in a new series of assorted “School Photo” designs.  The first one being Terriermon from digimon Tamers, looking all cute and sporting his winning catchphrase.  You can find it as prints, t-shirts, and most importantly, the cutest throw pillow in existence, on our two stores.  

Until next time,

The Mightiest, Morphin’est Kids you Know
It has been a good long time since we posted some new stuff, and a lot of that was due to life getting the better of us with work, holidays, etc, but another large chunk of it has been the fact that I have been working on this poster for the last month.  
It took a lot of planning and a lot of drawing, but I am very pleased with the conclusion. 
As always, prints, cases, and clothing are available on Redbubble, and Society6 (if that is more your thing).
Please let us know what you think! And I promise that we will get some more frequent updates going on.
Until next time,

DKR - Diddy Kong Racing Set 1 of 2


Here is the first part to my DKR Signature series.  Here, Signature is being used literally as I had each racer sign their name to a piece of paper, which I carefully scanned and added to each snap shot.  For real guys.

These are all available as iphone cases on our redbubble store, and I can make them into other things if there is interest.  

Remember how much fun this game was when it came out.  Don’t you want to remember each and every time you look at your phone?

Comments welcome! Always feel free to contact us through ask or whatever, and until next time! (which will be in 5 minutes when I upload the second set)

Bye!

So, this is a culmination of things that I have been working on for the last week.  I made all of these cute sailor moon related vectors and had been trying to figure out some way to make the henshin into graphic art.  This is what I came up with. I hope you enjoy them! If nothing else, this exercise did a really good job of showing me which Sailor Senshi had better color combinations than the other ones….

Per always, all of these are available on our Redbubble Store.

Sailor Moon R Part 2 - Things Adam Likes
This took a really long time to come together.  I know that not everyone loves the Doom Tree arc, so I decided early on to make two separate posters for the second season as to give all the villains time to shine.  I tried to keep it simple and really keep the focus on the tree itself, but other stuff kept creepin in. I almost didn’t put Sailor Moon on the poster at all, but it felt strange. And I couldn’t pass up a chance to put the Moonlight Knight on it, because everything about him is ridiculous and great.

 I uploaded it on Redbubble  and once I get back from Paranorman I shall get to work on the iphone case.
