I've been thinking of trying my hand at's t-shirt contests. I love designing shirts, but haven't pushed it more because the logistics of running a t-shirt business while STILL being a comic artist are a nightmare. So having a reputable place like Threadless handle is looking more and more appealing.

I had this design from something I submitted to OBEY, but always wanted to retool it and make something fresh with it because I love the drawing so much.

This is by no means done. I want to add some art into her belt buckle, and the face on the print isn't done yet. Haven't decided if I want the "beat up" version or the clean one.

Anyway, feel free to pass you thoughts in the comment section below.

this looks dope. i actually think it's funnier with the straight pic of che. but i like art that has ambiguity to the meaning, so less to me is usually more.

Shit, I guess I wasn't clear. The girl's mouth/tongue would stay, the only question is if I should use the distressed looking print or the clean one.

Sorry bout that.


Samax said...

lol! then i would go with the clean one!

Mike Hawthorne said...

Ahh, cool. Wifey said the same thing.

Sorry for the confusion.


Samax said...

not a big deal. it's still dope.

plus, my wife pretty much asks my opinion and does the opposite every day. I already know my opinion only matters as far as the tip of my nose.

after that, all bets are off! lol!

Well, THIS time your opinion WILl count. I'm gonna make the switch to the cleaner version.

Thanks :)
