I recently had the honor of creating some drawings for Converge’s Blu-Ray box set Thousands of Miles Between Us. I couldn’t be more happier to have worked with these guys – long times friends and one of the most inspirational music groups out there.
I have some new merch available until FEBUARY 16th. Part of news series of limited release t shirts and Apparell that shirts and destroy are doing through their new website.
You can find all my new stuff here
Below is a short press release from Ryan at shirts and destroy about this new direction.
Shirts & Destroy has a new website where the company will house it’s new Limited Edition Artist Merchandise. Consolidating resources with sister company TrueBlack, Shirts & Destroy will continue to release weekly Artist T-shirts and other goods in collaboration with it’s expanding community of true underground genre defining illustrators, Fine Artists, Tattooers and musicians. The previous website will remain fully functional as existing stock is migrated over to the new online store.
The first release on TrueBlackUSA.com <http://trueblackusa.com> is with long time collaborator and friend Thomas Hooper. This collection of merchandise will only be available for purchase for two weeks until February 18th.
Shirts & Destroy is committed to producing all merchandise moving forward on ethically sourced textiles that are MADE IN THE UNITED STATES.
We can no longer ignore the inhumane working conditions, environmental impact and social irresponsibility of T-shirt manufacturing in China, Mexico, Pakistan, Bangladesh, India and other areas of the so called “third world”. Your support allows us to offer an alternative to these practices while contributing to a community of artists who rely on your participation. Thank you for being a part of SHIRTS AND DESTROY!!!
Thank you so much for your continued support.
Earlier this year I was very lucky to start a project with Innis from Fine Light Trading, the premise was to design one skull ring based on some of my drawings and tattooing. This soon be came a set of six rings, a collection was accidentally created.
Hexad MMXIV Six Sterling Silver rings designed by me, Thomas Hooper and made by Fine Light Trading here in the USA.
