Clutch T-Shirt by NickJustus Clutch T-Shirt by NickJustus
Drew this for a t-shirt design assignment in Bob C. Hardin's class at JKS. Penciled then inked using quill and brush.

It's a design for the rock band Clutch. It's an image of the lead singer, Neil Fallon, inspired by their Burning Beard music video.

Saw them in Poughkeepsie 2-27-09. I only wish I could've had this silkscreened to wear to the show.

Would it be okay to make a tshirt from this? I saw the comment saying you didnt care earlier just wanted to make sure it was still cool. My buddy is a huge clutch fan and I want to make it for his bday. Sick picture

Hi man, I've removed your work from my profile on the site. I apologize for using it without your permission and I meant no disrespect, I just couldn't find any sources or links to it when I searched at the time. I really admire your work and I hope you continue to do more of the same in the future!

Much appreciated. It's not the first time this has happened to me. If you wish to continue using it, you can pay me a flat fee, or give me an even percentage of sales. I'm glad you liked it enough to "swipe" it, and are being gentlemanly about the whole thing. So I'd appreciate a cut from what you've already sold, and we can strike a deal if you want to continue using it. Thanks!

Love your work man. What would be the process I'd need to go through to print your piece of fine art on a tshirt myself?

:iconnickjustus:
NickJustus Featured By Owner Jan 14, 2013
I guess you could do an iron on. At this rate this piece has been bootlegged for all sorts of stuff & I don't expect to ever see any payment for it, so have at it! That or you could save the jpg/pdf to a thumbdrive, take it to a store like Staples and order it on a t-shirt. Probably cost like $25 though.

True. Although, I think Neil and Co would probably enjoy the enthusiasm and increase in exposure. It's the label you'd have to worry about.

Hmm. Why don't you contact the band, or print them on your own? I'm serious about purchasing a shirt. This is probably one of the best Clutch designs I've ever seen.

I posted the image on their message board back when I drew it, it got some positive and negative feedback there. I was hoping they would definitely see it there and want to use it, but no such luck. That's for the kind words. I guess you can go ahead and make your own bootleg if you like, everytime I've been contacted about this particular piece for prints/whatnot, the person never winds up buying one. Or you can actually pay me for a nice print that you can scan and make your own shirt from? Whatever's fine with me. Thanks again!

That's a shame. Thanks. I don't exactly have the time nor the patience to get something like this printed on a shirt, but I'll let you know if I do. I think your problem may have something to do with the fact that this was a drawing rather than a vector or whatever. Easily (somewhat) fixed, but just a guess. :)
