Arrested Development Shirt Set (The Bluth Boys) UPDATED


So, after I made that shirt of myself earlier today, I had decided not to dismiss the entire idea of it. I really like the design, I just think its ridiculous for it to be of myself. I ran with the idea and decided to mock up a set of shirts from my favourite television show Arrested Development. I am so happy with the result that I am thinking about taking the idea to the printers. If I can drum up enough interest to do these shirts, I will.

Now this is just a mock up idea, so the colours arent perfect, and the sizes are off (the final printed tees will most likely be scaled to fit on an 11″x17″ screen, still pretty big). I would release them one at a time, over the course of a few months. I would limit runs to 50, if I can get enough pre-orders to justify that, and smaller if not. I would also try to figure out how I might go about making a one time “buy the set” type deal, but I don’t know how I would go about doing that right now.  If this picks up, I would also be into taking suggestions for other people to do this type of shirts for (movies, bands, other T.V. shows, etc.). I am really into the simplicity of it all. Please gimme your thoughts in the comments, and if you think someone you know would be into this little project, please link them.

UPDATE: I spent the better part of today re-doing all of the designs as half-tones, rather than 2 colour “vector” types. I think they look better now, and also will cost less if they go to print. Savings I will then pass on to the buyers. Win-Win, I figure.

UPDATE 2: Due to bugetary constraints I cant justify printing these shirts and hoping they will sell. Maybe in the future, probably never.

I want the whole set. Make me a deal.

Yeah, you should have a flat price for all 6, but it is less than if one would buy all 6 separately.

Ernie February 28, 2010 at 8:50 pm

Yeah, but then I would have to pay to print all 6 designs at the same time.

BonnyBoy February 28, 2010 at 10:17 pm

I’d probably get the whole set

Kyle February 28, 2010 at 10:22 pm

I was recently searching on for images of Tobias Funke from
the television show, Arrested Development and I found the vector image
you put on a shirt of Tobias’ face. I was wondering if you would be
willing to send me the vector image of Tobias so that I can use it for
my team’s softball t shirts. I don’t have the program or artistic
ability to do this, so I figured it was worth a shot to email you and
see if you could be kind enough to hook me up with the vector image.
Just let me know what you think.
