Custom T's

I guess it was around last September or so, one of my workmates and I were talking about Skrillex merch and how it was, well, not too impressive. Logo shirts and some other kindergarten looking doodles on another... that was about it. (at the time any way) So I worked with him on a design and this is what I came up with for his custom shirt to wear to the concert...

Best part about the original design... I painted over the girl in glow in the dark paint, so my drawing was visible even in the dark. It was definitely pretty sweet.

It was met with a pretty nice response; people wanted to know where they could get one. So, I created a silkscreen version to print the basic design out on the tee's and then go back and add my personal touch with shading, splatter, etc. I'd definitely say the most fun part is donning my full-body mechanic suit, taking each shirt out back, and letting out some pent up aggression. ... slicing through the air with brush in hand, splattering the scene in black... it's fun :)

I've got them for sale in my etsy shop. Each one comes signed and numbered by yours truly... The most recent sale was in the UK, which was kind of cool. Also, Germany hee hee. Das is awesome.

And below is the lovely Bianca, a happy customer showing off my work :)
