Laser Mon T-shirts!!

Saturday, March 7th, 2009

I was at my friend Jeremy’s house a couple weeks ago, for a drawing session, and I was looking through some old photos he’d acquired throughout the years. There were some really good ones but there was one I was crazy about. I had to borrow it and make something out of it. Here is that picture.


Amazing right? What was that third little lady looking at?

Well, I figured it out. I went ahead and jazzed up the image a bit by adding a Jamaican, love-able, monster that goes by Mon (like “hey man” – said with a jamaican accent). Mon just wanted to give these sweet, little, old ladies a giant hug, but you know how little old ladies can be. One of them felt threatened and had to give ol’ Mon a giant zap of laser power in hopes that he would retreat to his native Jamaican Island. Poor Mon.

I printed the 2 color image on sweaty-shop free American Apparel, tri-blend t-shirts and you can pick them up at Parts and Labour on South Congress right now, and all during SXSW.
