Vandals Of The Universe / New T-Shirt

After a couple of sneak-peaks i have finally holding my new t-shirt (design) in hands today.
The design/concept came along while working on that "Moment Of Toy Unboxing" t-shirt design for the comic convention in Mexico City last year. It took a while untill i found some time to finish up the complex illustration. Also i wanted to give it a retro/vintage look'n'feel. So i made some oldschool silkscreen miss-print effects and rough grid for mixing colors by using only 4 original colors in purpose. I have to admit i like the result!
Finally i came to terms with some childhood memories (Hi Xavi!).
I am also planing to do a limited print run soon after my upcoming travels then.

The t-shirt is available now in limited stock here at the supermarket:

DAF (Dicht-Am-Fisch) just released this new t-shirt i did the design for them. They are doing fishing related street(river!?)-wear and so this time i wanted to tell a bit of the story of things happen when you go out for fishing but your catch just... escapes! True stories!
