If you’re in the UK, you probably have a sweet accent, you know about the original, superior versions of The Office and House of Cards, and you could just walk into a Next retail store and grab my hilarious "Let’s Face It" t-shirt.
If you’re not in the UK, you can order it online and continue not knowing about this bad mofo.
A sneak peek of some upcoming products at Ohh Deer with designs by myself, Laura Gee, Jaco Haasbroek, and Gemma Correll.
I’d like to point out that just this once, I’m not responsible for the profanity and coarse humor you see here.
The other day I heard someone say, “I’m so over the whole superhero movie thing.”
I very cleverly replied, “Well, I was never under it in the first place.”
This person just continued to speak without even pausing to acknowledge my bon mot.
In fairness, that was the only course of action available to the projected image of an entertainment reporter on my TV screen, and in this it case happened to be the correct one.
The “Above Bored” t-shirt
Two more designs have been added to my range of greeting cards at Ohh Deer, and I trust you to navigate the mixed message they appear to present.
Btw, everything on the site is 15% off at the moment.
"I went into a McDonald’s yesterday and said, ‘I’d like some fries.’ The girl at the counter said, ‘Would you like some fries with that?’" - Jay Leno
… and you said, “No thanks, I’m trying to avoid carbs.”
Come on, Jay Leno, you finally tell a good joke and I have to finish it for you?
The “Discounting Calories” t-shirt
The shirt that’s also an intervention.
My "Let’s Face It" t-shirt is available in Next retail stores as well as online: here for UK, and here for USA.
Process: “Careless Whisker”
1. first I did some research, indulging in a formidable cat gif binge - not sure exactly how long it took, but at least enough time to finish a bottle of $4 wine and an entire sleeve of thin mints. my first concept sketch attempts to illuminate the nearly invisible thread I detected running through the source material.
2. next I had to find a pleasantly (yet thoroughly) insouciant cat to use for reference. Luckily, the first one I came across happened to give precisely zero fucks.
3. the technique I decided to use for the finished design was a sophisticated paring down to the essential geometric structure - similar to what toddlers do with their first set of crayons.
4. reflecting the following morning, I felt that ultimately the result was but a single step in the artist’s journey - namely, the search for truth, understanding, and a diner that offers free coffee refills.
This is Vinz from Italy. He doesn’t always wear shirts depicting items he’s currently holding in his hand, but when he does, he prefers my "Brewmance" t-shirt from Threadless.
