I’ve been working hard on this project over the last few months. I wanted to create something that Saint Helenians, and people who love Saint Helena, could be proud of. This is just the first of many designs I’m working on in collaboration with some amazing tattoo and comic book artists around the world. It’s been a lot of fun reaching out to these artists and watching the designs develop and evolve as we swapped concept sketches. It was a chance for me to indulge my love of pop art and to give something back to the island I call home.
This isn’t your run of the mill souvenir shirt or hoodie. This is merchandise designed for Saint Helenians by Saint Helenians. This isn't some major tourist company putting together designs for visitors who will end up using it as a duster months later. It's a guy sitting at Thompson's Hill on St Helena, with a sketch pad and a bottle of Castle beer.
I don’t want this project to end. Please share, please purchase, please send me pictures of you making funny faces in one my t-shirts. I can't do this without the support of the Saint Helenian community. Be safe!! - Baz
