Calling all artists, I have an opportunity for you :) — Jordan

2 years, 3 months ago

Hey HEthens,

I have a opportunity for all of you crazy artists out there. I’ve doing a Kickstarter in a few weeks for a clothing company I’ve dreamt up called RaveNectar. The mission it is to appeal to the human sense of wonder by creating loud/beautiful/obnoxious/vibrant/insane clothing.

We’ll be using a new printing technology called ‘Sublimation’ that allows printing on every inch of the shirt, in extremely saturated colors, eg: http://imgur.com/a/G2V90

The other side of the mission is to support artists. The shirts will all be original art from independent artists. 30% of profit goes straight to the you, which will be about $8 per shirt. Each artist will also have a detailed profile on the website with bio, gallery & links back to their own sites, Deviant profile, facebook page, etc.

Here’s the splash page that I created with some sample designs I grabbed off of DeviantArt and one of my own (on the right): http://ravenectar.com

If you’re interested in being a part of this or have any questions, let me know! I’m looking for just 3 artists & 3 designs for the launch.

EDIT:

– You can email designs/ideas/portfolios to jordan[AT]ravenectar.com
– Checkout the template for the shirt here: http://www.mediafire.com/?97nx838jr98wrac
– Get a feel for what kind of designs I’m looking for with my DeviantArt favorites: http://jetlej.deviantart.com/favourites/

Much love,

Jordan

Someone should use math fractals to create a design.

Btw if when this all succeeds, I’m going to detail every single step of the way to show how simple it can be to create your own ‘lifestyle business.’ Kickstarter is the some serious awesomeness, and I think it’s still an untapped gem.

@jordan, I will try. I want to know though, what sort of image layout is required for the printing process? Should the design be created over the shape of a T-shirt shape laid out flat 2 dimensionally, or are you mostly looking for concept design that you will then interpret into the form of the shape of the clothing?

@jordan, I’m interested in the idea too since I am on the verge of doing t-shirt printing myself. How would i submit a design? I have quite a few designs which are mandalas/fractals. I suppose I could upload some of pics in the photo section but this may not be the right place.

I’m not much of a ‘color’ guy but I’ve been getting more and more into it…

Let me know if I fit the bill – most of the stuff isn’t designed for T-Shirts.

Take a look at TeeVee Monstah, just add color.

more abstract;

Style of the tree may be easy to transfer to new t-shirt ideas;

@kellah, @yougottobefree, @snowcrash, @johnsyd, @tangledupinplaid21, You can email your designs/ideas/portfolios to jordan[AT]ravenectar.com. Once I see your work, we can talk more specifically about designs :)

@danfontaine, I just emailed the printing company to ask if they have a specific template so you can really fine-tune the design to the shirt. Ideally the entire shirt will be covered in a design.

@ijesuschrist, I especially like the Zen Tree design. I’m open to black and white designs, but the content would have to be pretty insane to make up for color. Do you think you could expand that into a full-shirt design? Also if you’re just not a color guy, I could probably find someone to color it for you. In fact, I’m sure one of the HEthens in this thread could!

your stuff reminds me of some upper playground stuff. if this doesnt work out maybe you can try to hack it with them. i dont make anything trippy really, or anything thatd look great on a t-shirt but doesnt hurt to throw it out there

@jordan, I completely forgot I had a deviant art account so I posted lots of my work there. If you have the time check them out.

Here is a link http://drsnowcrash.deviantart.com/gallery/39430167

If I emailed all my stuff it would take ages!

@snowcrash, Ooh I especially like 4, 29 and 31. The only thing is that they look a bit unpolished compared to designs like this: http://www.threyda.com/artandgoods/printoftheweek.html. I want each of these shirts to be absolutely breathtaking. If you think you can put in the time to expand one of these fractals to have detail like that, I’d love to have you onboard!

@jordan, Yeah, I could. I don’t think I could compete (time-wise) with graphic artists though for a fully detailed shirt…

Ehh.. I’ll give it a go tonight, something large scale, drawn quickly, add some color, depth, detail… let me know if you FEEL it or not. I always thought it would be cool to have a photoshopper color my work, though. I would totally do it myself but photoshop is a pain in the ass to pay for.

@ijesuschrist, I’ve never paid for Photoshop :) Let me know if you’d like a link to the proper torrent. I’ll definitely let you know if I FEEL it haha.

As for time, take as long as you want. Even if you don’t get in on the initial batch, you can always be involved later on. Art shouldn’t be rushed.

@jordan, Cool would love to work on one some more for t-shirts. All the ones one deviant art are only 1000×1000, the originals are 5000×5000 which can be zoomed in on quite a bit. Even at six gigs of ram though I run out of memory on most of these… Will give it a shot anyway. Nice link, some awesome work there!

@jordan, Awesome!

I work in a lot of different mediums, and if any of these are of interest–whether it be concept and/or formal aesthetics, I’d love to support
