Let’s Not Forget About My Tees
Yup, after all this started as a blog to showcase my t-shirt designs. But before I go into my latest design, big shout out to those who took the time out and commented on my previous post. And nope I didn’t win the Lomography challenge. But thank you guys nonetheless. Feel free to keep those comments coming for my future posts. It gets kinda lonely in here ya know?
So there. I just completed a tshirt design for my website shirtyfooty.com. It was actually a pretty random idea. I’ve previously gotten a fair bit of positive feedback with my cartoony doodles. So I was thinking, why not try that out for my next design? And of course my subject has got to be interesting and unique. And you don’t come any more interesting than Gervinho, an Arsenal footballer with a flamboyant hairstyle/head/forehead, to put it mildly.
Inspired, this is what I came up with,
I added a distressed texture to the design cos that is what I’ve always wanted to do. And boy was it hard work. I spent the same amount of time if not more, distressing the design than actually creating it. Well, practice makes perfect. I’m gonna have to do more and refine my distressing techniques.
So if you’re digging it, or the other designs on my site, now will be a good time to make a purchase or two. There is a shipping promotion from 29 – 30 Oct (yea I know, it’s so short), where US shipping is free of charge and US$9.50 discount off international shipments.

So shop away people! Time to begin preparations for those Christmas presents.
