I design offensive & funny t-shirts, some people buy them, some people actually wear them! End result is just awesome :)

All work and no play!

Who knew designing Tshirts could take up so much of your time? A typical day in my life is:

I get up around 6.30am and drive over an hour to my day job, traffic usually sucks and makes it worse! I then work all day (I’m a web designer) and put up with all the stupid office politics then drive overer an hour home at the end of the work day. I get home and spend about an hour or so with my son and my partner. Then I hit the pc again to check in on the days activity.

Promoting myself and my company is such hard work, engaging with people on Facebook and twitter, checking out the competition, creating my own art work, uploading to Facebook, deviant art, red bubble, zazzle etc… It all takes allot of time. It’s all worth it, don’t get me wrong… But don’t ever think designing Tshirts is easy and sales are a given! Quite the opposite in fact.

I never stop thinking, every minute I think of a slogan, or a movie which has good quotes in it, I actually can’t watch a movie or tv without thinking “I could make a tshirt out of that” my mind never stops, 7 days a week! I’m mentally exhausted lol.

All the support from fans helps though, Its nice to know people like what you do at the very least, so if you like something you see, let me know, it keeps me going!

Ps. Buy my Tshirts lol :)
