Good idea V.

I'd like to see more than one design though.

Lots of talented artists here.

anaconda, Richie Goodtimes, Eponymous.

I'd buy one if they were good quality t-shirts in size XXL.

Black is boring.
Title: Re: themelvins.net/forum t-shirts??
Post by: Vcavallo on March 13, 2006, 09:29:39 AM
agreed, black is really boring.  every band t-shirt i own is black, it's really tedious.
i think it should be a nice color, with a really high quality design.  something we can all be proud of.  it doesn't have to say BBS all over it, maybe just some kind of **gulp** inside joke somewhere or something.  it would first and foremost be a melvins shirt, but an exclusive one.  unless of course it was totally awesome and the designer started selling it on ebay or something.
regarding size: i don't know much about custom Tees, but i think the most democratic way to do it is have someone organize the thing [not necessarily the designer] and make a list of people's names, addresses, and size preference, which would be acquired by email.  then whoever orders them only orders those shirts that are wanted, not just 20 xxxls. 
i wouldn't mind paying a bit extra to get the size i want, if the design is good.

Title: Re: themelvins.net/forum t-shirts??
Post by: Lunica on March 13, 2006, 10:32:58 AM
yeah, i have like 100 black shirts, and 20 other shirts. give us some colors, i don't wanna walk around looking like a damn piece of domino!

Post by: CaptainPungent on March 13, 2006, 11:08:12 AM
i think the name the melvins goes perfectly with the color green.
but, any other color than black i'm good with.

You will never see old Schnab in a forum t-shirt, I`m past that age.  :lol:

Are you that cramped? Come on dude, you have to buy that shirt when it comes out.

Maybe we can let Brian ban people from this board if they don't buy the t-shirt. Or we start an alternative forum for buyers only.

A quote would be a nice, but not that one. Imagine all nu metal kids (do they still exist?) come running to this board to order 'our' shirt because it says 'FUCK YOU' ;)

How about a bad review?

'Damn do people get lame when they get old'. Or 'the massive outro of feedback isn't funny.

Anyway, i just had an idea. Maybe this tshirt shouldn't say "the melvins" on it (might be difficult getting permission anyway, maybe) or anything about or refering to the bbs. Maybe just a picture and then we will only know what it means.

"Buzzo vomits a soliloquy of unintelligible atrocities, and before you know it, the band's right there shitting along with him."
also awesome.

i like the idea of a picture of the to-be-shirt on the shirt itself.   
somehow that seems to fit our little backwards community here.
and i like a bad review quote on it.

i must admit, this whole idea is really starting to excite me.  i need a new shirt to wear to pieces

Not really, it's more insane than evil.

You should go with that picture of the Melvins all holding knives with the white eyes if possible. You know, one of those pictures on themelvins.com.

The problem would be the green tint all over the place and the fact that most of Dale's head is chopped off the picture.

it needs to be "darker" somehow.  thats a cool design but for some reason it just seems too light-hearted.  headless person or no headless person.   the theme is cool but the artwork has a slightly "happy" feel.

Evil like a fruit basket perhaps?

and hey brian,   I like your "evil like a fruitbasket" idea.   something about the fact that this fruitbasket is a representation of MELVINS makes it evil,  know what I mean?

For 20 bucks I'm in, of course I pay for the shipping costs as well. I'm sure Rembrandt is up for this as well, I'll ask him when he's stoned, maybe I will right now. Or tonight, or tomorrow morning. I'm not too sure about zium, but I'll buy him one for his birthday. Heck, maybe I'll buy both shirts, one for the weekdays, one for the weekend.

That's three already from such a small country as the Netherlands, I hope this isn't gonna be a problem.

i don't mean to rain on the parade, but i don't really like the ULTRA-graphic look of this.  it's very obvious that it was made on a computer, you know?  the design is fine, but i think this type of thing just looks a little thrown together and rushed.....there's no detail.
i think it should be a high-quality line drawing, like an etching, or some sort of pen and ink. 
i know someone is going to say, "well if you think that's such a great idea, why don't you do it yourself?!"
to which i'd reply, "OK"

i'm no good at coming up with ideas, but i think i'm decent on execution, as far as ink drawings are concerned. 

hit me with some ideas and i'll try to sketch some stuff up.

klump has a great idea for a shirt though, we'll see if we can make a sketch of it.
thanks for the confidence, but i don't really have much time for extra work right now,
i'm pretty loaded with school stuff. (two magazines and a campaign),
but there are 3409234 other great designers at this board!

maybe if i get bored one day (more like everyday) i'll make a suggestion as well :)

Sure that's not copyrighted, Anaconda?...

I'd say it's more influenced by the Japanese artist Yumiko and her pencil sketches, but I'd like to
think I've used that inspiration and taken it up to a whole new level, especially with the line
weights, digital composition, color choice and the placement of the typography. particularly the 'i' in
snivlem falling right over the dog's rectal opening. an accidental, but oh so perfect placement
that pays homage to the 20th anniversary shirt in an odd way. Thanks for your input.

I like it man, maybe not for a t-shirt design, but it's a great piece of art that in my opinion fits into the mysterious aura around the Melvins. Also, I like the fact it looks Ozma-era inspired. Now that I'm thinking about it, maybe it would be a great t-shirt design anyway since we're talking Melvins here.

these shirts are obviously all sketches,
so we will of course give it a little makeover if ours gets chosen.
the end of the shadow will be fixed, and the indeed could be just a tad smaller :)
(not small like oprah after her weightloss), but small as arnie schwarzenegger.
i'm guessing everyone else will be doing that as well.

the colors could be negotiable as well, but i don't want a grayscale one :P
:):):)

so, who will put up the vote?
