Why make SKETCH?
It's hard creating a new clothing brand but, it’s something that I really want to do. My hope, when everyone sees the shirts, I get the reaction of "Oh snap!" or "I love it!" I've been designing since I was in high school and have been told that I should put my artwork on shirts. It’s taken me a long time to pursue this dream but I finally got the push that I needed in college as they encourage students to start their careers early.
So, I present to you, SKETCH, which is my love for art and creativity that will hopefully become a national phenomenon.
What is the story behind SKETCH?
I have been interested in cartoons and drawing ever since I was small. It has been all I've done in my spare time. I took an interest in graphic tees in high school because they showed humor, creativity and originality. It was then that i began to think, "What if I design clothing with my art on it?" I usually drew chibi characters and my own creations. I soon became known for my drawings. My peers commented on my artwork saying, "I’d buy that if you had it on a shirt," which is when I started to think that I should make my own brand of tees. Sketch is a nickname I’ve been dubbed with and I live up to it. I’m currently a junior majoring in Graphic and Multimedia Design and I’ve decided that now is the time to pursue my dream and get a head start.
I have noticed that graphic tees can be quite expensive. So, my goal with my brand is to design awesome looking shirts at an affordable price with the same quality as shirts from top name brands.
SKETCH designs are based off of random ideas and designs that I have done. So I have decided to launch with two of my most popular designs. The first one, Dragoon, is from my dragon set which combines a comic feel with…dragons. The second one, Bezerko, is from my Bezerko Monkey set.
Without further ado, I present to you Sketch.
Where is your pledge going?
I've put a lot of time and effort into this brand to create a sample run for my t-shirt line. Although, if I want to actually put this endeavor into action, I would need extra funds. That's where you come in! With the aid of Kickstarter, the funds raised will go towards my first line of t-shirts as well as shipping the rewards to you. I hope to raise enough money to purchase equipment and supplies such as a heat press, printer, ink and more.
