Gifts From Enola tee

Here is the artwork I did for Gifts From Enola for their US Tour which is currently happening right now.




heres the green one... the green might be different though...

They apparently printed white on green tees, so that should look cool. It is not my most favorite drawing I have done, as I am more of an abstract artist then an illustrator, but I couldnt resist when they said they wanted an octopus or squid grabbing the sun. I wish I had had more time to work on it, as I feel I was nearing an acceptable piece of artwork, but I didnt give myself enough time to revise it, and they were leaving for tour. So, hopefully they have been selling them and people arent disgusted with my first attempt at a band t-shirt. Though I dont really think its much worse than the Explosions in the Sky shirt I bought for Lara, which has a similarly handdrawn look of a falcon with a script "Explosions in the Sky" on it...

So, go to see Gifts From Enola, do a search for my previous post on them. They will be playing here in Brooklyn this Thursday the 2nd of August with Caspian and Giants.... I am very excited for this show as both Caspian and Giants are also very good...

If your in town, come say hello, and buy a green octopus t-shirt if you like them. ^_~

I will take pics of this show. I forgot my camera for the Ampere show, so I need to make up for it... Though hardcore is a bit more photogenic than post-rock, but band pics are cool either way...

thanks! haha!! yeah, i was thinking of that today actually...

the swiz one and the rites of spring one...

yeah, i still want to make them, but i am taking the summer off of creating... my job requires me to draw in a way thats not my style, so it leaves me feeling pretty uncreative...

i have a ton of shirts i want to do... all saved up on my comp... i'll get to em someday after the summer is over...
