This shirt was for Big D and the Kids Table’s anthem, “Shining On” off their Strictly Rude album. There’s a lot of Allston references, so that’s what they got for a landscape. More images after the jump.
I was asked to design their skateboard deck, and later asked to rework the image to work as a shirt. Consequently, this ended up being the first shirt I ever had distributed through Hot Topic. Mall-rat fame!
I made these graphics back in high school, and definitely thought I was the man, because they were selling my shirts while on tour in Europe. In hindsight I kind of want to barf when I look at those graffiti letters. The whole thing’s too loud, each letter wants to be to coolest, all jazzed up with arrows. I beginning to head in the right direction with the “girl with no name” aka “the girl who had no name”.
