I’ve made a lot of t-shirts in my life. The one for blip.tv is without question one of my all-time favorites.
The shirt had an interesting genesis. I met up with blip.tv’s Charles Hope for lunch the last time I was in New York. While we were waiting for the coffee to arrive, I drew him the cartoon, right there at the table. Within a few weeks Charles had taken the design and turned it into a t-shirt. The rest is history etc.
Hmmmm… Maybe I should be doing more of these…..
[Charles blogged both the lunch and the cartoon here.]
Who do I have to kill/kiss to get one of these? 😉
Nice design! I think you should shy from doing too many. The shirt’ll be cool because of its uniqueness. Too many might make it less neat. I’m sure there’s a middle way.
Charles is simply amazing, and I love the shirt! We were really glad blip.tv came down to Podcamp Philly- you should see the picture of Charles in the Luchador mask. http://www.flickr.com/photos/electricsky/1348458015/
Howdy Hugh, I’ve never been here before. I really like your art. It speaks to me like peanut butter speaks to dry bread.
anyway, out of curiosity, Do you like explodingdog.com?
I have no connection to exploding dog. So this isn’t a plug or spam or anything. I just am interested in seeing if you think it’s cheesy, or if its great.
My 0.02 cents… cut a deal with Threadless to introduce ‘The Gaping Void Collection’
Thank YOU, Hugh! It is definitely my favorite blip.tv shirt.
I can see why – it’s very esoteric.
I love my blip T-shirt! Thanks Hugh and Charles 😉
Wow. I hadn’t realized how good your cartoons look on shirts until I actually saw it.
CafePress might have some of my money by the end of the week.
I second the Gaping Void Collection. I’d pet a skunk to get one. Not that that’s a biggie — hell, i’ve dated ’em and even married one skunk back in the day, so what the hey, right?
I agree with Heath, a limited collection would be marvellous! However, I’d insist on a figure-flattering baby tee for wear in Miami, not a clunky big t-shirt. 🙂
First time here, but what great concepts — very clever. This is genius. Good luck with all — i’ll be linking friends.
About time you got hooked up with Blip.tv, Hugh. They’re the best digital media hosts on the planet with respect to respecting creators.
