Hi, everyone! Welcome to MerchAtttacks! I usually blog from my Facebook page but for now on I decided to announce and run things from this Blog instead since it being my main page for my new brand enterprise n' all. Please gimme love people and let me know what you think, I need your feedback. I'm beginning from page one so... stick around cause we're going to kick things up a bit.
I'm really excited about what's to come in the following months. MerchAttacks is my Store Brand name for selling merch that spewed from my fiendish thoughts inside this dungeonish cage I call a head.
And... what exactly is MerchAttacks all about you ask? I'm glad you did. As I move forward in this competitive and highly personal gratifying venture as an artist & designer I am constantly looking for that, "Wow! Hey look, that actually looks really kool" moments in life. You know, one of those "Eureka!" moments.
Well, to get back on track I have two blogs one for my art & design studio, "Which I am currently running without a name" and the other my store brand name which is obvious, "MerchAttacks!" she is solely there as an outlet for selling my art I create, sending art to printers, and finally stocking the cyber shelves in my stores online and hopefully it all will perpetually happen in that order again and again.
While I do plan on making revenue, I have no intentions or delusions of grandeur of striking it rich I simply would like to make fantastic things for myself and for you to wear, hang on your walls, etc.
That being said I don't plan to charge outrageous prices and i plan on documenting it all here on MerchAttacks! I want to keep you in-the-know constantly by showing you what I'm up to.
The emphasis or influences that drive my creative madness is: pop culture, pulp fiction, horror, sci-fi & fantasy, cartoons, comics, kustom kulture, lowbrow, exploitation, B-movies, grindhouse, basically MOVIE oriented themes because movies are a huge inspiration and motivator for me.
I freelance from a small studio that has help from family and a few friends from time to time with big ambitions of creating clothing, paintings, accessaries, anything kustom made for myself and the world to enjoy.
I've got a lot of posting to do since I've got an overloaded hard drive that's chock full of stuff saved over the years and new things I'm constantly adding to it. I also want to post sketches, inks, colors, and final versions of ideas, designs, and other things so if you can please let me know what you think I'd appreciate it.
So... for starters it's time to smack this post up with some of my new logo designs, banners, and business card ideas I have brewin'. Here's one I've been playin' with and I just finished it today
I kinda' like it better than the first one I had up, here's a shot of it here
Probably reminds you of a few science fiction movies you may have seen, right? Good... that's what I was shooting for. A lot of what I do is inspired by movies and not just sci-fi all genres fuel my fire. Well that's it for now, more tomorrow.
