Comic Book Shirts Commissioned Designs
COMIC BOOK SHIRTS COMMISSIONED DESIGNS! In addition to the complete line of original HEY APATHY! T-shirts and apparel I have used my unique style to design shirts for various other creative projects. These works have included band t-shirts, small company logos, event promotion and limited edition commissioned fine art projects. The process for these works has varied from people who give me complete creative control to produce anything I like to highly customized specific illustrations.
The top images on this page exemplify these two different approaches. The first t-shirt was made for the intelligent-metal band called “Between the Buried and Me”. They simply asked if I could make something really cool for them and gave me the freedom to approach the work however I liked. I listened to there music for awhile and took some inspiration from their title to come up with the imagery of a city sinking mixing harsh aggression with a sensitive passivity.
The second commission was for a community event entitled “Blocks”. It is a sort of treasure hunt that is designed around investigating urban spaces and histories. They asked if I could incorporate the word “Blocks” into a cityscape with both new and old architecture. I wrote the words across the rooftops and while most of the buildings have a classic NYC feel to them I added a few areas with the repetitive glass structure representative of the modern condominium.
These examples basically show some of the different ways I work with clients to create the right imagery for each new project. The other examples on this page include a custom artwork commissioned by the Art Gallery of Ontario in celebration of their grand reopening in 2008 and a Hockey related image for an independent website that not only covers sporting events but also attempts to expose the cultural significance and social-political side of professional sports.
