T-shirt Art February

Content Edited (9/17/09)

I was recently commissioned to do some t-shirt art for a couple of bands. I was really excited to do some art for Dan Auerbach, of "The Black Keys," who is putting out a solo album. The "Keys" are awesome, and from what I have heard, Dan's album "Keep It Hid"sounds like it will be great too. I did one creative 70's feeling design (top), another based on 60's Jazz Art and Ohioan pride (center), seen in previous "Keys" apparel, and a more Head Shot approach (bottom).


This design is for a Country rocker I had not heard of named "Jonathan Singleton." I was told to take inspiration from Bob Seger t-shirts/posters. I found a photo of "Singleton" live that worked well. "Singleton" is touring with Eric Church and I will have a design of his that I will show in my next post. IF and MAD will have to wait.

I hope the musicians dig my ideas. If you get a chance, please let me know what you think.

There will be much "celebration" and jubilation when designs go to print.

Really like the top one..One comment on the Ohioans and Tigers and Bears Oh my one...great concept. Being a transplant to the great state of Ohio from the MUCH greater state of WV (WV 76 tOSU 48)...Ohioans commonly referred to as Buckeyes regardless of college affiliation...(I get slurred all of the time with that when I go back to WV) Would it phonetically flow better with Lions and Tigers and Buckeyes Oh My? B sound traded with B sound...(not trying to talk down to you by any means but over explaining as a result of dealing with high school kids plus the fact sometimes things only make sense in my head)...Not sure if the Ohioans is a reference to where the singer is from or this is going to take place in Ohio so that might or might not be too vague...just my two cents...

Thanks for visiting!

The Black Keys are one of my top 3 bands. Dan's solo album is fantastic. I've seen the Keys live 3 times, and hope they come around Madison or Milwaukee soon.

Really great work. I really dig the the light blue and yellow ones at the bottom. Not sure if you've heard of Bon Iver, but you should check out his music.
