Each month, our Monthly Legend sends out an exclusive design for $9.99 that has never been printed anywhere else. We could not be more thankful for the artists that take part in this because it allows us to include our entire community in something truly special that they cannot get anywhere else. We also enter every subscriber into a contest to become the Legend of the Month, where they receive a package with a value over $250.
This month’s Legend comes from an artist that we feature often, Arinesart. You can read our interview with him below.
I’m Arinesart (Charlie, or Carlos, in the short distance) and I’m from Madrid, Spain.
Nothing fancy. I was looking to buy some cool tees when I found about Threadless, and similar sites, at that time. I was running EXTRA LOW on money then. So it was kinda 2+2 made 4.
Once more, nothing fancy about it. It’s my surname + the word ‘art’ :/ I was already using that name as an industrial graphic designer, and think it still works for this stuff. In fact, now that you ask (LOL) I really think more people in the tee design business should use true names. I mean, it’s your work, put your name on it. But I digress…
Everything pop culture, geeky and/or nerdy. That means TV, movies, comic-books, literature, art, steampunk, etc. Also, clouds, trees, forests, deep space, nebulas, the world of photography, or anything else I can translate into a photoshop brush.
The super power of memory: That way I can remember those fantastic ideas I got for designs every time I don’t have my cellphone or a post-it near to write up them :/ The only thing worse than not having new ideas is to remember that you had one, and that you’re not able to remember it later xD
Ogggh! Hard one! I hate you guys for asking this one!! xD
I’m old enough to say, without fear to being not hype-ish, that I’d probably would choose Wisdom, lol.
