Threadless Artist Shop

Again, I have not posted in a fair while, this is due in part to laziness, and work commitments but largely laziness.

 

 

At any rate, I was asked by Threadless to put together a clothing store as they were breaking into the Print-on-demand industry (market?). I liked the idea as Threadless is pretty well-known and has an awesome community so I thought it would be an amazing opportunity. I’d dabbled with Threadless in the past but not really got that involved due to by peeking approach to the internet at large.

 

AND SO! Just in time for the wrong of Christmas, here is The Murphed Store!

At the moment I have come up with a brand tee, and repatriated a bunch of older designs to the Murphed brand. I am planning on putting together some fresh work to try and strengthen things up.

 

The current roster in includes:

 

 

 

Murphed TShirt Model

 The Murphed Tee! Available in a multitude of different colours. Somebody bought it in black who used to live opposite the military estate I used to live on.

 

 

 

 

 

Eggs men Model

The Eggs-Men! My personal favourite.

 

 

 

 

 

Triangular Model

 Triangular! This looks simple but took a long time to get right..





Bulbous MODEL2

 Bulbous! I am pretty much just pleased with the name.. The illustration is pretty amazing too!




Anyways, I am glad 2016 is coming to a close, it’s not been particularly easy for me so I am looking forward to the opportunities that 2017 will hopefully bring – I have a big plan which I sincerely hope pans out.

 

SO I will take the opportunity to wish everybody a very happy and prosperous and merry and sparkling and jiggy and dope-eo New Year! I hope all your wishes come to pass.

Until next time!

Cheers,

 Eggs-Men – Now a reality!

 

It has been a long time we have last spoken, thats my fault and I don’t want you blaming yourself. Not for one minute. Half a minute I’m OK with.

So I always meant to redo this piece as I was never 100% happy with it but I just never got around to it and so after being invited to open a store withThreadless’s Artist Shop’s I was convinced today to release it as is and it is now available to buy. To be honest I’ve had the store languishing for quite a while and wasn’t until recently that I came up with it’s name – Murphed and put together a mark. I was super keen to incorporate my name into the brand so at the moment I am happy with how it has come out.

To give a bit of interesting information, the piece was done with my dip pen on bristol board and scanned and the coloured using the same colours for Marvel’s comics in the 60’s to give it a retro feel. I was planning on messing around with halftones when I redid it, maybe I will try that in the future but don’t hold your breath people. The t-shirt is yellow, I have stuck with that colour since I used the colour of the garment to colour Wolverine’s hood as well as Cyclops’s eye band thing.

So below are a couple of images and below that a link to where you can buy your very own t-shirt. The design is also available for women and children.
