It’s never been so sweet to give the gift of nerd!”For the quote Tees Eckstein has worked with fellow fangirl, Anne Convery, as a guest designer. Convery is a self described “suburban nerd,” graduate student and wife of Star Wars: The Clone Wars Supervising Director Dave Filoni. “I had a blast playing with the iconography,” said Convery. “For example, Doctor Who has such a rich universe for us all to play in. When Ashley and I brainstormed the ‘You are the __ to My __’ shirt, it really brought home to me just how key the relationships are in Doctor Who.””When I think of the iconic Geek Girl, I think of Anne,” said Eckstein. “She is such an inspiration to me. I have been picking Anne’s brain on designs for a few years now and it’s about time that we collaborated on something for Her Universe!”

The Star Wars, Doctor Who and Star Trek Quote Tees are available to order now at Make sure to order no later than February 6th to guarantee delivery by February 14th, Valentine’s Day.

About Her Universe

Her Universe was created to directly address the expanding market of female fans by entering into its first agreement with Lucas Licensing to develop and produce a line of female-centered Star Wars apparel and accessories.

About Anne Convery
Anne Convery is a self described “suburban nerd, wife and graduate student whose major fandoms are J.R.R. Tolkien, Neil Gaiman and Doctor Who.” She also has a good vocabulary for the Star Wars universe, but, as she claims, due mostly by osmosis as it jumps from her husband’s (Star Wars: The Clone Wars Supervising Director Dave Filoni) head and into hers. She has no other way of explaining how she knows random trivia like the working title of the first Star Wars movie or what planet Togruta are from.

Ashley Eckstein revealed today new Her Universe quote tees, perfect for Valentine’s Day, featuring insider sayings from Star Wars.
