Who wants AWESOME clothing?
« on: 10 Mar 2008, 23:10 »

I've always wondered who get's payed so much to print a brand name on a shirt and charge 40 dollars for it. So, I decided to be that guy. Except with sweet art and way less money.

Things aren't in full production yet, but it's well on it's way. You buy? This is just some of my art, my sister's is slightly different but the style is going to remain somewhat as is. Make sure to see the full size of each one to catch the detail. I'm going to be pumping out more art for a while so if you're into it, you're F5 keys got another workout to deal with now.

Maybe you should practice designing for a while and then come back to trying to sell things.

People pay lots of money for brand name clothing because it is a brand.  You have to establish that brand first and make it something that people think will get them laid.  Then, they will pay you ridiculous money for simple crap. 

On the other side of things, if you are going in the artistic niche, small run, well designed shirts can often fetch $25 a pop. 

Not to be a dick, but half your designs are just a custom shape object dragged around a few times.  I am sure that there are people that will like it, but there are several people that will see it as lazy design.

first "this is to be a dick but unfortunately the truth" post.

Your designs are the zellers equivalent of the expensive "indie" brands. There are some really great tshirt designers out there who have some original and fantastic work out there who charge much less than the big streetwear companies, but if you're into the streetwear scene, then branding is everything and price tags are part of that image, so its a moot point.
you could have been fine, you could have made it, you could licked the lips of god but you chose the pavement.
