 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.

Here's some more images of what I'm currently selling on MERCHATTACKS! right now. For now it's just some T-Shirts, patches, stickers and iPhone Skins which I'm going to post here for you in a bit and as I make more and hopefully sell all of it I can make more and post it.
Like these Monkey Division stickers for instance, A lot of you are probably saying to your self... WTH is that? Well, I was in your shoes not too long ago too asking the same question but then I learned where this brand came from. Turns out It's a toy company that faded away almost 30 years ago by REMCO so just about the only ones that are reading this and saying, "yep, I remember that." are the baby boomers of yesteryear.

Here's that name I mentioned above, "REMCO" as a 5 x 2 inch oval patch. This was embroidered by an Embroidering Company by the name of Custom Patches Online. They were extremely professional in that  their speed of the whole process was lightning. Their prices are average compared to most embroiderers out there but the quality and speed out weighs the price.

These two patches were also done by Custom Patches Online. And are for sale over HERE.

Here's something called an iPhone Skin, this one was printed over at Stickermule. They do an excellent job over there so if you ever are in the mood to get something sticky printed they're the people to get it done.

Well that's about it for now? I'll have W I P's later on my next project, well actually I have a few but for now ... gotta go so keep looking, stay in touch and I'll see you later.

Stay tuned for updates of the next design I'm working on. This will be the very first one to grace this page since I just started it. Also I'm going to be showing how I made it so I'll post some pics of the process too. Oh btw this blog, "Merch Attacks!" is the main website, "the mothership so to speak" where anything and everything you will see in the future gets sent to this online store. MERCH ATTACKS!

I had these printed a while back in January of 2012 by MerchSpin, they're located in FL, are very receptive, plus do a kick ass job on the print quality, check 'em out if you are going to have something printed soon. I started and finished with the designs in December 2011 so they are fairly new. 
Stick around, see works in process, show off some really awesome threads, and help spread the word!
