Bootleg Bart/Tigers

 

I've been busy as of late with a few projects on the go,  there have been a couple of note that have been heaps of fun -

- Bootleg Bart - One of the premier art and culture magazines France's Be Street is holding dual exhibitions in Paris and LA this year and are running a competition  inviting artists to submit their own version of bootleg Bart (dodgy versions of Bart Simpson) to have a chance to show their work along side so many amazing artists  ( David M Cook, Kyle Platts, Sexual Youkai, Yaia, Lamour Supreme and more) I'm crossing my fingers that my entry will at least get a look in. At least it was fun to make

- Tigers - My brother in law is a massive fan of the Richmond Football Club aka the Tigers so for his birthday in collaboration with my brother Jay we made him a one off screen printed long sleeve pocket tee, I learned a few things making this, primarily that back prints need to be big! 

I based the tiger design on an old Sailor Jerry tattoo, and the front pocket design is a classic slasher film hand gripping a kitchen knife.

The drawings were screen printed onto a white AS Color long sleeve, which was to be honest not the best canvas, AS Color shirts are quite thin, compared with a Gildan which has a real thickness and quality to it.

 

 Back Design - Sailor Jerry Tiger.
