Jimiyo Takes Us to Church (0)

, under Advice .

If you haven’t heard of Jimiyo yet, then you must be new to the scene. The guy has been a t-shirt designing pioneer for quite some time now. He started out winning t-shirt design competitions on the regular and parlayed that into employment for TeeFury/Design By Humans as their art curator. In short, when Jimiyo speaks….we all listen.

He recently created a post at Emptees titled “How I Made $7500 in 3 Months With My Art

” where he lays out the different approaches to getting paid for your work. It shows the different outlets for sales and serves as an overall gameplan for distribution of your designs. A must-read for all t-shirt designers…


T-Shirt Designer Spotlight – Wotto (0)

What better designer to have in the spotlight after Jimiyo than to have another master of t-shirt design, Wotto. Craig Watkins is his birth name and designing is game. See what makes Wotto run this shizz.

What is your favorite part of design?

It has to be doodling ideas and trying to pour the mess out of my head onto a page. It’s great when a design comes out on paper close to how I visualized it. It doesn’t happen often but that’s what makes it so golden. I think the drawing stage is very important, there are way too many ‘illustrators’ out their just tracing stuff and not actually drawing.

How would you describe your style?

Dark. I like to draw characters that have a narrative, a life of their own. I like to create little stories and lives for my creatures. I know it sounds weird.

What inspires your work?

What doesn’t? Pretty much everything I look at. Artist wise I get inspired by painters like Joe Sorrel and street art has always played a part in my art work.

What are five websites that you can’t live without?


Dekay Clothing
Design By Humans

What trends do you see developing in the future of t-shirt design?

I hope to see less 80′s inspired tees and I hope character design will remain popular. I donno about future trends, I try to steer away from mainstream design.

T-Shirt Designer Spotlight – Jimiyo (0)

Talk about the Taddict bringin’ it with the first Designer Spotlight of 2009….none other than Jimiyo! I can’t think of a t-shirt design competition that he hasn’t put his mark on. The kid has skills, now see what makes his style go round:

What is your favorite part of design?

Near the end of finishing a design, after a significant time investment, there’s a point sometimes I step back and evaluate my design and think, “Hell Yeah.” That is a favorite part of designing. It’s doesn’t happen all the time unfortunately.

How would you describe your style?

Distinct, highly detailed linework using custom baroque style flowing embellishments woven throughout specific images of symbolic significance. Usually contains animals and quotes.

What inspires your work?

I receive inspiration from many other artists. Alphonse Mucha, William Bouguereau, HR Giger, Gerald Brom, Audrey Kawasaki, El Mac, the list is endless.

Also having to pay bills, inspires my work. Gotta get my one toof cleaned. Gettin some bling on that mutha.

What are five websites that you can’t live without?

Dear Computer

Merriam Webster
Boing Boing
*One Bonus Site

What trends do you see developing in the future of t-shirt design?

I’m not really a maven regarding trends. I would say great blogs like… Taddict.com are better informed on the upcoming trends by certain cues they see being replicated in several designs.

As far as what I am going to do for 2009, my trend is going to be kicking ass, takin names, Yeeeeaaahhh. JOKES JOKES! Seriously though, I’m going to create some traditional acrylic paintings and digital illustrations next year and try to expand my market into different venues.
