There’s nothing better than functional art. I love seeing others wearing T-shirts that I have designed. Whether you’re a band that needs affordable shirt and button designs for your fans, a company promoting an event, or a business needing uniforms for your employees, I am ready to get to work for you.

Bad Apple Records Tenth Anniversary T-Shirts

Bad Apple Records 10th Anniversary T-shirts

Bad Apple Records

Bowling Green, KY

These shirts were printed to commemorated the tenth anniversary of this seminal independent music label. Bad Apple has released records in several genres, including efforts from my previous bands Stellar Kin and Redfoot. Both shirts feature variations on the Bad Apple logo that I designed circa 2002: the complete “grunge text and apple core” design, and a parody design of the Converse Chuck Taylor All-Star shoe logo.

Brick House Blend “Afro” Shirt

Brick House Blend "Afro" Band T-Shirt

Brick House Blend

Lexington, KY

This is the first shirt designed for my band Brick House Blend.  I had been working on a few more straight forward “logo” shirt designs, but none of them were particularly inspiring.  During an afternoon run, this idea came to me.  We all share a wacky sense of humor, and a shirt that reflected that was definitely in order.  I reimagined our singer Ande as a 70s era diva with a huge afro and blinged out jumpsuit.  The rest of the guys peeking out from her enormous hair style just adds to the hilarity.  Topping it all off is the “Fillmore” font, found on psychedelic concert posters in the 60s and 70s, with a waving “Warp” effect.  This version is printed on “Daisy Yellow”.  The shirt is also printed on fun summer colors “Pistachio Green” and “Light Pink”.

Main Street Costumes

Main Street Costumes Christmas Shirt

Main Street Costumes

Greenville, KY

The Giant Skull returns!  This time the shop’s grotesque, yet lovable mascot is spreading holiday cheer, as Santa Claus and his reindeer fly off into the moonlight.  I enjoyed blending the shop’s “street sign” element with the “North Pole” marker to make this shirt extra-Christmas-y.  Also check out the 2009 “Mascots” design I created for Main Street Costumes.

Shirt Design for WWE’s Daniel Bryan

Daniel Bryan “Angry Teddy Bear” shirt

T-Shirt Design for WWE Superstar Daniel BryanWWE Wrestling Superstar Daniel Bryan was a favorite of mine from watching him over the years in promotions like Ring of Honor (ROH) and Dragon Gate USA.

He was briefly let go from WWE in 2010 after a controversial (i.e. sponsors didn’t like it) incident where he was scripted to choke out an announcer with a tie. While he was back out on the independent wrestling scene, Bryan decided to capitalize on the publicity the angle earned him and had a contest for his fans. The premise was to design a shirt, four colors or less, depicting him as an angry teddy bear, preferably brandishing the infamous pink tie. I sprung to action, drawing the anthropomorphic, scowling fur ball, posing in Danielson’s signature robe.
