I love working on t-shirts. Slogins logos.. I almost said slogos that should be something new a slogo I think I should coin that term. Whats your slogo well it belongs on a shirt. HAHAHA…
The thing about shirts is you can get creative and that it is living breathing art. It allows people to express themselves through your work and that, in my opinion, is an honor many don’t get to feel.
The above is a little example of my drawing skill… or lack there of. Heh. If you were in recovery you get it if not then don’t worry about it it doesn’t affect you. Remember my shirts are not supposed to be cynical but instead a little tongue in cheek or perhaps even dark humor. The point was to present something they had not scene done before.
I love this shirt because it implied that sex is not spiritual, something I firmly do not agree with, but it also speaks to objectification in every day media of which I am still on the fence. But all in all it is just funny and I liked it… this one did fairly well in the shop.
The company was Sicker Thann Others and I have always wanted one of those loud ass muscle cars that you can just feel hum in your chest. Well after giving it some thought and even though the GTO is my second favorite, only bowing to fords Mach1 (sorry my dad was ford guy), it did have something I needed. I needed a reason to put it on a shirt. Well look close at the emblem on the front of the car… hehe.
This was done after I did a very successful movie called Somewhere. I did it in flash and for sometime it was all over the web. I did find it funny that many people on Myspace who disagreed with my podcast and thought I was the most evil thing that ever came down the pike had this little movie on their page… rofl
In the rooms I have often heard people use the following saying and pardon my French but “He is such a piece of sh*t.” Or “I am such a piece of sh*t”. This got me to thinking about excrement and how we viewed this stuff. Then I was lead to how the universe sees it… nature… it is rich in good stuff that plants and bugs need… these bugs and plants feed the things we eat… unless ofcourse we are eating the plants and bugs themselves. With out this part of the process we would have nothing to eat. Nature wastes nothing. Everything has value to something. Its awesome! Humans are the only creatures that create things that have no value… and we do it to people to… we create people with such low self esteem that they feel they are of no value… and of course they are, nature is pretty clear on that point…
So in recovery we take something that seems to have no value and make it valuable… people.
Ok they where just cool not to mention the relationship between guns and defects… they are both used as a means of self-defense. And in a perfect world neither would be needed. This also did fairly well in the shop.
It should be noted that these are all vector based objects that are easy to screen and print. I learned a lot about the silk screening process in doing this project.
It was loads of fun!
