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

2 years, 6 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

@alexmayle, I’m planning to launch within 30-45 days. 2 weeks for designs, then prototypes, making a SICK video for the Kickstarter and other marketing strategies. I want to own this, and then post exactly what I did so others can too.

I’ll try to think of some cool designs and maybe sketch one up in my free time. I don’t have any tools to work with other than pen and pencil, and maybe some coloring pencils for the basic idea for the color schemes, but if I find the time and energy, I’d love to!

@alex, Cool thanks man.

@jwasian, I know! Unfortunately that artist did not want to participate in the project. I even asked to pay him because his work is so insane. No response yet :/

I’ve been wanting to see this shirt for a while. A black and white colored man wearing a suit with a tv for a head. He shoots himself in his 90s television set skull, unleashing an array of beautiful colors. Butterflies, grape vines, just an explosion of beautiful energy colors and figures.

I am a decent sketch artist but I have a tough time getting what I have in my head on paper. If anybody could draw this it would be super awesome and make for an incredible shirt.

@jordan, ric stultz has some ridiculously cool art that could be put on a t shirt. You might try contacting him.
Could you message me the link you discussed with jesuschrist?

@jordan, Cool, I’ll try and get a design to you in the two week window.

And like I said, if you need music for the kickstarter I’d be glad to help out. I know you’re making one for the Montreal community as well, so whatever you need just let me know.

@bobbylloydxd, That’s a sick shirt idea. If I find an artist that has that style, I’ll mention the idea to them. For Photoshop, do you have Mac or PC? I’ll message Ric about the project :)

@alexmayle, Awesome. Thank you so much for offering to help out. I’ll keep you in mind!

@bobbylloydxd, Perfect — just download this and follow the instructions inside. It allows you to crack the official trial download from Adobe into a full version.

@sisyphus, Nope, I’m not a fan of those designs. They feel too sci-fi to me.

@facets, Yes they will be $50 each.

@ahende12, I just emailed you back :)

@jordan, That price seems a little steep for a t-shirt, no matter how cool it may look :P
