"MONSTER SMAAAASH!!" Retro Videogame Inspired Apparel
An run of limited-edition tee shirts and hooded, full-zip sweatshirts based on 31 vintage video-game titles.
This project will only be funded if it reaches its goal by Sat, June 1 2019 3:59 AM UTC +00:00.
Let's do the smash, the Monster Smaaaash!! This project features a smash-up of 31 different vintage video-game titles as illustrated by artist, Kyle Kubik. Originally created for the INKTOBER 2018 event, Kubik reached out to friends and followers for suggestions regarding which vintage video-game villains should be represented. That image has now been re-purposed as a mind-numbing design with some of the dopest 8-bit and 16-bit baddies.
Like my previous campaigns, the goal is to fund a limited edition run of this artwork on apparel and print. If successfully funded, this limited-edition apparel will be made to order for the backers alongside a small-batch run to be sold at conventions and shows. Like ARKADO, EFEMERECO, and WINNERS DON'T DRINK DRUGS, once all these shirts have been sold, no more will be made. And for the first time ever, I'm offering hooded, full-zip sweatshirts!
The tees will be silk screened with White, Hexachrome Cyan, and Hexachrome Magenta C ink onto Next Level 100% Ringspun Cotton Black Unisex Tees. These tees are available in size EXTRA SMALL through 4XL. Please click the images below for more information about the apparel (i.e. size options, measurements, fabric blends, etc.).
The sweatshirts will be silk screened with White, Hexachrome Cyan, and Hexachrome Magenta C ink onto Gildan Adult Heavy Blend Black Full-Zip Hooded Sweatshirts. The front will feature the "Hot Blooded Challenger Club" logo, a new vintage video-game inspired art apparel series, which will be kicked off with this design. The back with feature the "Monster Smaaaash!!" design. These sweatshirts are available in size SMALL through 4XL. Please click the images below for more information about the apparel (i.e. size options, measurements, fabric blends, etc.).
Appreciate the arts but not an apparel person? That's cool. At a $10.00 pledge you'll receive a signed 11" x 17" poster.

Risks and challenges
All print production for this campaign will be done on Long Island and most will be sourced through the printing company I work for. The greatest challenge will be obtaining the funds required for the production run as this project is my most ambitious to date. It features multiple designs and multiple style options; however, I have handled projects similar to this for private clients, so I feel confident that I can complete this project within the deadline give if successfully funded. The only plausible hurdle I see relates to lack of exposure, so if you (the backers) want this limited apparel to be produced, please share this campaign with as many people as you can through as many avenues you can (Twitter, Facebook, podcasts, word-of-mouth, etc.). It would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your support.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
