HEY GUUUUUUUURL! I’ve always sorta-kinda tossed around the idea of a BlondeNerd.com t-shirt but I’m, like, this thing called not artistically talented. Hell, even if I knew how to draw legitimate stick figures I would be still be stuck with the task of deciding WHAT would be splayed across the shirt, so the entire idea was put on the back-burner. But on one, fated day (AKA a random Monday a month ago) Allied Shirts hit me up with an offer for one of their free, custom t-shirts.
ALRIGHT! I was going to take this opportunity by the horns and make me a custom piece of garb…and…uh, I still didn’t know what to design and still couldn’t draw. (I really should have put more skill points in that talent when I was born.) But that’s when my good ol’ buddy ol’ pal Mark came in. He is an insanely talented artist and you may remember him from the Zombie Sonic t-shirt giveaway we did a few months back! He graciously agreed to help me out. But I still needed to decide what to design.
So, I thought about what encompasses me as a video game blogger, what my main passions are and what I’m kind of known for. Mark and I kind of diddled around with the design and VOILA!
Of course we have a zombie, a hot wing, Link and ALISTAIR ZOMG IT’S ALISTAIR AND HE’S LOOKING AT ME LIKE I’M THE PLAGUE. Of course we know that this isn’t how it would really go down IRL, but it’s okay — I’m willing to take one for the team.
Anyway, we both would love your feedback. I’ve only printed one shirt (the one I’m wearing in the photo) and I’m wondering if I should make the circle smaller, or move it somewhere else…but I’m thinking with a circular design it can only really be in the middle. ANYWAY! Please let me know what you think! Eventually I would like to make a bunch of these (in all colors and sizes!) and use them for promotional purposes, giveaways, etc.
Thank yoooooooooou! <3
Here’s another thought — I could always put the design on the back for Men’s shirts. HMMMM. BRAINSTORM WITH ME PEOPLE!
(An extra HUGE thank you to Allied Shirts. I’m extremely satisfied and was very impressed by the quality of the shirt. There wasn’t any tearing, fading, bleeding or anything. YOU GUYS RAWK.)
