A few years ago I designed a tattoo for myself – something to show how much my adopted home – Vancouver – meant to me. When I showed the design around, I immediately got requests to feature it on t-shirts. Since then I’ve developed more designs, primarily based on the East Coast (trivia note: I’ve also lived in all of the Atlantic Provinces).
Now I want to expand the options available, and so I’ve added shirts for Ontario, Manitoba and Alberta so far, with more to come.
You can find the shirts here, in my Redbubble store. And kids’ sizes are also available.
Well, hey. I guess this is the first big art news of the new year. As you may have noticed, I released a motorcycle calendar in the fall. And it seemed like a natural outgrowth of that to put out a line of bike shirts, too. Here’s a preview of the nine different designs:
As usual, you can find ’em here, in my Redbubble store.
Okay, I’m gonna make a bold statement here. I like drawing motorcycles more than I like drawing women, cars, or guitars.
There, I said it.
I can’t even put my finger on the reason why; I just know it’s really fucking fun. Partly because motorcycles are just inherently badass, but there’s something else there, too. I’ve always liked perspective drawing, so that’s part of it. And figuring out how the parts work, doing the research… that’s pretty huge, too.
I decided back in January that this year’s calendar theme would be motorcycles, and I’ve spent almost the entire year doing research about cafe racers, trackers, scramblers, bobbers, choppers, street fighters…
Once it came time to start the actual work, I learned about sidecars, perimeter brakes, superchargers, even bikes I’d never heard of before. Crockers, for instance.
As I write this I’m on the penultimate bike, a Kawasaki KZ900. Once that’s done, I have to do an Indian – most likely a board tracker.
And then the calendar will be ready for release, and all will be right in the world.
Wanna see some in-progress stuff? If you follow me on social media, you may have seen some of these already. Not all of them, though:
You have seen my 604 skull shirts. They started life as a tattoo design until my buddy Scott suggested putting the art on shirts. Since then quite a few Vancouverites have bought one of these:
Then my brother and I were chatting one night and he suggested doing shirts for people in the Maritimes (AKA, where I was born and raised). Here they are:
You can find ’em here in my Redbubble store.
Another Tuesday, another t-shirt. The hardest thing about this week’s post is deciding which new shirt to release; I actually have a bit of a backlog at the moment.
This week’s apparel:
As always, this can be found in my RedBubble store.
Continuing with last week’s pin-up girl theme:
This and the shirts from round 24, of course, tie in with my upcoming Hot Pink art show.
And you can find this one here in my RedBubble store.
Yes, we took a week off from T-Shirt Thursday last week. We were in dire need of rest.
(Okay, we just forgot, actually. Also, we were drinking. Don’t judge us.)
Anyway, this week we’re back on track with a shirt for everybody who loves Twitter and Instagram hashtags:
And you can buy it right here, in our Redbubble store.
Also, we’ll be back with more next week, and we’ll stop referring to ourselves in the royal we.
