Metal Travel Mug

Bending Mountains Before Work

by Jeffrey J. Irwin

Talk about steely good looks. In addition to a 360-degree wraparound design, our metal travel mugs are crafted with lightweight stainless steel - so they're pretty much indestructible. Plus, they're double-walled to keep drinks hot (or cold), fit in almost any size cup holder and are easy to clean.


This is a pattern created from two different pictures. One picture was of the mountains south of Bend Oregon and the other was of a sunset taken just outside of my house. I mirrored each picture four times and then laid one over the other. To cut out straight line differentiation I took a piece between the bottom of one new image and the top of the other and content aware cut them to make them flow together. Now with two long strips of pictures I mirrored that new image horizontally and then flattened the result. I took the new image and mirrored that four times. Now that I had a pattern created I created yet another image from a gradient map I made of a background from a popular TV show and then took the well worked on pattern and overlaid the gradient background, then faded that overlay as a difference.
I made the t-shirt a seahorse pattern.

Enjoy. =)
