    May not be raging warriors, but it's damn good.

    Love that portly Hawiian guy the best, and a really wonderful job for the limited color selections.

    Hey robo, these are really cool, I love the smooth mix of illustration and graphic design. Very smooth. I'm assuming this is all done in adobe illustrator? Nice character design too.

    thanks everybody, glad some of you laughed...I like to think I'm pretty funny and I like to put that in the work I do...

    answers to questions:
    all the work is done in Macromedia Frehand, it's IMO more screenprinting friendly than Illustrator...

    I do the illustrations and the color selections, must of the time it's limited to what the client is willing to pay since they pay a per color charge. it can become a real challenge when you have this image of multiple colors, but the client only wants 3 colors...including the underprint. challenging in a good way of course.

    I currently work at Native Sons screenprinting and embroidery, where I'm the senior designer as well as lead illustrator...big titles, basically means the art director picks the jobs he wants and gives the rest to me, unless there's some real drawing that needs to be done and then that gets thrown on my desk too

    I'll keep this thread going as the work gets done.
    thanks again ya'll

    it's nice to see shirt designs in here, keep posting these as you can. Also see if you can work more mullets into your designs, you know you'll always score with mullets.

    Hey, don't discredit yourself! This is very sweet stuff. I'd even sport the pink one just because the girl is so adorable, haha. I actually really envy artists who can make very simple designs look amazing. Because I have to try to convolute my work with too much detail soemtimes

    Cool stuff!

    I totally agree with you on Freehand being the program for screenprinting. I used to do T-shirt designs way back when for Birdlegs and they used that program too. It was fun but didn't pay enough.

    Are any of these designs out on the market? I think I may have seen a few.

    I'm feeling the same way about the pay at the moment...
    most of these shirts have been printed and a few have not....for the Native Sons shirts, your going to have to come to myrtle beach and buy one at our retail store ( @ broadway at the beach) or wait a few months and buy them online....

    Holy crap that's a big update. ;P Lovin' those first sets of shirts in this update. Reminds me of something I'd see at glarkware or something.
