I've recently launched a campaign to help me get some t-shirts printed. If I pre-sell 20 before the end of February we go to print. If I don't sell 20 then everyone gets a refund. Here is how the design came about.
The original sketch was completed a few weeks ago during a session where I was experimenting with new feet for my Korpworm character. I'd settled on these 3 pointed feet that, to me, look a little like the corners of a pillow case. I added all the other detail like the feathers, body stripes and arms but then, in order to fix what I thought was missing in the overall composition, I added really big fingers.
Next stage was to scan the design and run it through Illustrator to turn it into a vector image. I knew the image would naturally work as black ink on a white t-shirt but I also wanted to add an option to have white ink on a black t-shirt (because black t-shirts are a lot more popular). So you can see from the image below I've added a small white border.
Now being a poor starving artist I cant just go and pay for 20 t-shirts to be printed (don't feel sorry for me, I love my job) so I needed to mock up what they would look like. Luckily there are a few free Photoshop mock up files you can grab off the internet that do a great job and in past experience have been very accurate to what actually gets delivered.
So the wrinkles are added to make it look more realistic but the first bit of feedback I got was you could have ironed the shirts...so I found a neat little Android app called UMM: Universal Marketing Mock-up that creates mock ups for you on a mobile device.
If the campaign is successful the boys and girls and Sea Dog Print Studio have saved me a spot mid-March to have them printed so you can feel confident that the quality will be super high.
So help me out and pre-order your t-shirt today using the links below.
Huge thanks to everyone that supported th campaign for the Margeworm t-shirt. They have all now been delivered and I'm looking at my next t-shirt campaign. If you are interested in getting involved with the next campaign sign up to my newsletter.
The Margeworm paste ups were so popular at Upfest I decided to run a t-shirt campaign. The catch is I need to sell 20 t-shirts before the 9th September in order to go to print. If I don't sell 20 then everyone gets a refund.
What are you waiting for, support the campaign here.
I worked with 2 great friends this year in Winniemmay and Process. Despite the wind we had a great time painting a large board at Ashton Gate Stadium. Unfortunately I forgot to take a picture and the only one I can find is just a detail shot of my section.
I did have fun with the paste ups as well and unlike my main board there are a tonne of photos of Margeworm on the internet. Here are some favourites I've stolen.
If you like the Margeworm piece you can buy the t-shirt at my shop. Just be aware there is a catch, if I sell 20 before the 9th September we go to print. If not its refunds all round.
Today is the last chance to pre-order one of my brand new t-shirt designs for £14.99 before they go back up to the regular price of £20. Here are a couple of mock ups of what the t-shirts will look like.
