Kompany’s Balloony Head

Another one of my designs straight from the oven. Check out http://www.shirtyfooty.com for more football t-shirts.

Think I may lay off the football designs for awhile and meddle with other subjects. Any suggestions? I’ll give you a cut. Maybe. Or not.

Manchester City took the initiative in the English Premier League title race as they sealed a 1-0 victory at the Etihad Stadium on Monday. It was a fairly even game with neither keeper being tested until the 45th min, when Man City captain, Vincent Kompany inflated his balloony head and floated over the hapless Man Utd defence to knock the winner home.

T-shirts commemorating this epic event are now on sale at shirtyfooty.com. Grab yours today!

C’mon Ref, That’s a Card

My latest t-shirt design is out and up for sale at my online store, shirtyfooty.com.

Titled “Ref-olution”, it depicts a referee’s hand holding up an (imaginary) card, inspired by the recent Roberto Mancini’s imaginary card fiasco.

I personally quite like the white on black design as shown.

Note: The picture is just a mock up. The only way to feast your eyes on the actual printed product is to make a purchase for just USD $23!

No? Well, it was worth a try.

On A Roll

And yes I’m talking about my t-shirt designs. It’s 2 in 2 weeks now and it’s so much easier when you get the momentum going.

My latest design for shirtyfooty.com will probably go down well among Argentina, Man City and ABU (Anything But United) fans. ABU, a loose coalition made up by people who detest Manchester United so much that they will support whichever team that plays against Man Utd. True story.

As part of the Icons football tshirt series, I do up portraits of footballing stars using elements that are representative of the players. Elements such as their past and present club badges, shirt numbers and their nationality.

This time round, it’s Manchester City hotshot, Sergio Aguero to get the Icons treatment.

I added a horizontal dash of white across the design to make it look more interesting and also to compliment the colors of Argentina and Man City. And here is the reference photo I used.

Not a 100% likeness if I do say so myself. Had a bit of trouble trying to nail the expression, but I think I came through in the end. What do you guys think? Feel free to drop a comment and lemme know.

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.

Ahh that’s my man. I remember having a solid 10 minutes discussion with my homies, deciding whether Gervinho was wearing a wig. It’s so unreal. Btw our discussion was inconclusive.

Inspired, this is what I came up with,

Gervinho forehead tee

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.
