Oh Expletive is a project of epic epicness. It is a series of illustrations about ass kicking and mayhem — from zombies to unicorns to knife fights to flame throwers — the series consists of some of the most awesome things life has to offer.
The illustrations were mostly made last fall and were shown at a couple of galleries in Phoenix, Arizona, and now we (James and I) would like to adapt these illustrations into beautiful, limited run, handmade screen prints and t-shirts. And we'd like your support to make this happen.
In return you get to be part of a very small group of individuals who will own these handmade screen prints and t-shirts. The plan is to make a small number of high quality prints and t-shirts that will be produced just once, and will be one of a kind.
There are a total of 9 print options. Each print will be made by hand, signed and numbered. All prints are 8.5 x 11 in size and printed on heavyweight matte paper.
Please Note: These illustrations are a work in progress and I'll continue to tweak things a little bit. The final illustrations may look slightly different.
UPDATE: There are now a total of 6 t-shirt options (instead of just 4). The designs will be printed on high quality Next Level t-shirts.
The designs will be printed on high quality Next Level t-shirts. Sizes range from Small to XXL. Men's shirts come in one style and women's shirts have the option of a scoop neck or a deep v-neck.

Thank you so much for reading this and considering backing this project. If there are any questions we haven't answered yet, please send us a message. Backing this project will surely make your friends say "OH $#@&! I WANT ONE!" Or, at least, we hope that they say that.
P.S. The music used in the video is from Nine Inch Nails' fantastic album Ghosts I-IV that you can get here.
No -- only four of the prints are available as t-shirts. The four t-shirt options are: Zombies, Knife Fight, 8-bit Attack and Unicorns.
Once the project funding ends, I will send all backers a questionnaire asking them for their t-shirt/print selections. I will also ask for shipping addresses at that time.
All prints are 8.5" x 11"
