Have you ever tried doing a crane kick, or imagine what your workday would be like in a montage to Joe Esposito’s “You’re the best around?” I have. Chances are, the word’s “turtle tipping” and “1up” mean something to you & I while the rest of the world just looks at us funny.
I’m AJ Obando and I grew up watching some really awesome TV shows, movies, playing some really awesome video games and well…I never really stopped. I wanted the world to know how much I love these games or TV shows so I came up with PopCultPins. These are fan art as pins I design that are inspired by all the things I love. Games, Cartoons, TV shows and movies. I know I’m not alone in my love for each of these so I decided to make my pins available to everyone!
A PopCultPin is inspired by popular or geek culture, designed on the computer by me and created with lasers! Yes, lasers! Or an army of tiny Charmanders if you’d prefer, but that would cost extra, like WAY extra. You can wear the pin in your hat, on your jacket, backpack, as a tie pin, on your lapel. Really, just about anywhere.
My pins are small and made of natural wood and metal. You could probably even get away with wearing them to work, but don’t get mad at me if you get in trouble, I said “probably.”
Moving forward I’m going to add more designs and expand the products I offer to include more items that we as a community would enjoy. I’m talking wallets, drinking glasses, and even shot glasses (for those 21+ or simply collectors) all made with lasers. If you have any questions or comments, reach out via my contact page! Thanks for checking out PopCultPins!
