how open are you guys to tshirts that tell a story?
i'm planning to launch a full series which tell the story of a comic character.
selling price should range between USD$20-25. Will be in small quantities world-wide. At most 20 pcs per design.
A comic character, or a comic book style character?
I'm fine with t-shirts having a narrative (I like it even) and I don't mind if that narrative is in "chapters" and doesn't stand alone, but I probably wouldn't wear a tee that had a series of panels like a comic book strip (I might if it was really good, but it'd be an uphill battle for that sale).
In other words it very much depends on how you're telling the story. But yes, in theory I'd be open to that.
Sounds pretty cool. A design can have narrative in it without needing multiple panels, I suppose. I've always wondered if a design that has inherent conflict (ie. plot) tends to stick more in people's heads than designs without inherent conflict - ie., the Nike swoosh (no conflict) vs a design of Coyote about to blow up some dynamite beneath Roadrunner.
it's a comic character, just like a normal comic, with good guys and bad guys, mainly about the story of a lead character. Talking mainly about society in a comic kinda way.
as for narratives, i think not. don't want it to look like a spin-off of a superman or batman classic comic.
no panels like a comic strip of course. I'm still searching for a good tshirt company.
about marketing, i guess i will get a simple webpage done up and also advertise here. You guys might become my first cilents.....haha. Thanks for the feedback guys! really appreciate it!
yes 20 pcs worldwide. I'm based in south-east asia. So it's actually based on 1st-come-1st-served basis. I'm open to all customers who appreciate the work!
