If you recall, I was working an illustration for a sugar skull theme.(Click here to view) Here is the final product that has been printed by Branded Baron. The black on white is a classic colorway that makes the art stand out. The Latin phrase that is above the head is, “Respice post te, mortalem te esse memento” translates to “Look around you, remember that you are mortal.” I was inspired by the Day of the Dead and all sugar skull art, so I decided to work on my own design. It is great to see this t-shirt printed.

Here is the final stage:
I would like to share some typography done by designer Chris Parks aka Palehorse. Chris has created various graphics from websites to package design to apparel graphics and I decided to focus on some of his typography pieces. Another interesting fact about him is he ran the Back In Black exhibit which focuses on t-shirt art done by today’s hottest artists. The best part about the exhibit is that you choose what design you like that is showcased and you can own that design on a t-shirt, as it is silkscreened right then and there.
There is a super limited to 11 on navy that will never print again, 9 hoodies and 50 of the black tees done by Miles To Go Clothing. This will most likely be the final print of this tee, ever. Pick yours up now. I bought my hoodie and t-shirt. This design was created by Godmachine and this illustration is probably one of my favorites coming from him.
Also, the mediums in Navy are sold out and I don’t know what else has sold out, but buy before it’s gone FOREVER.
If you haven’t heard of Electric Zombie, it’s definitely an interesting brand to check out. Kyle Crawford runs the company and the shirts he releases have good graphics. Sometimes they’re bright and sometimes they’re a little bit darker toned, but that’s usually during the different seasons. His upcoming release looks promising, so check it out. Which t-shirt appeals to me the most? Hmmm.

This is a cool short little typographyc video. It’s certainly an interesting and new approach that I think does a good job. So check out this Chris De la Rocha video that applauds one particular font and it isn’t Helvetica.
All is well

Simply Complicated was rooting for the Rams to win their football game today and they won. They promised a discount code, so “GORAMS” will get you 50% off all orders for the next 24 hours. I’d take the opportunity to purchase if I were you.
