A closer look at the man behind user dcastle8183 (0)

Last week you were introduced

to user dcastle8183 from DBH for having some awesome talents with the below shown submission. Since then,  I have asked this user (who’s name I now know to be Derrick Castle of Nashville Mafia ) to write up a short description to better introduce himself to his fans, including myself.

Hey ya, Derrick here. I’m a designer and have been in the industry
professionally for 10 years. I have been interested in design since I
was a wee little child, drawing pictures of Popeye and anchors on my arms at a very early age. I have spent the majority of my professional career working in the corporate office culture as a graphic designer. In my evening hours I have done works for numerous client such as Hank Williams III, The Crickets of Buddy Holly fame, Sk8grl Merchandising, CoolGirl Decks, Double D Records as well as many other mom and pops.
I’m currently trying to get my Merchandising brand, “Straw Castle” off the ground.

The Straw Castle

brand is tapping into a lot of my different
influences. I can find influence in many a strange places… whether
it be food, drink, sleep or culture. One of my biggest influences has
come from the tattoo culture through personal heroes such as Sailor
Jerry . You will see a lot of traditional tattoo designs influences
carried through in my work. I’m also inspired by music, in many
different genres, particularly Eastern European Gypsy. I think one of the reasons I like this style is because their sound is so eclectic.
They use many different types of instrumentation from different places and cultures. Like this style of music, I find my self trying to weave different combinations of style and cultures into my design work.

I have few different goals in life, the Straw Castle

brand being one.
I’m currently pushing out as many designs as I can, to cement my niche in the tee design community. I’ve presented some of my work to communities like emptees.com and designbyhumans.com the past month or so and have gotten pretty good feedback. I feel like I have around 10 design concepts in the Straw Castle style that completely kick ass but its been a matter of just getting started. I’m pushing my first design out there to see if there is a market for my style and to be able to finance the rest of the designs. So far it has been a long illustrious career but in the words of The Carpenters “We’ve only just begun…”


Here is Derricks first design for newly launched store Straw Castle titled “Thus Be Judged”. Looks awesome! Yours for $15.99

RedisWhite.com launches online t-shirt competition for the Christian mass (0)

Red is White where you will find unique faith-inspired, super-cool, t-shirts designed by artists from around the world.


Jimiyo has even submitted a design!

RedisWhite.com – I don’t live the lifestyle, but man, I think I could be a force in the Christian tee world. Not because I’m a good artist, but growing up with it, I think I could probably illustrate some hard hitting imagery from the Bible.

rethink clothing @ big cartel (0)

Sure its another big cartel

store, but hey its not "just another bit cartel store". Half of what I have seen on big cartel isn’t worth paying $1 for the design. These guys are moving in the right direction and seem to be moving ahead of the others. Keep up the good work and come out with a few more designs and you might find yourself on my favortie big cartel stores list .

Here’s what Rethink Clothing

had to say:

ReThink clothing started out in late 2007 after I was stressed during school and looking for something that would lighten my spirits. Rethink is really about breaking away and making designs that appeal to a wide range of buyers. We  go from artsy to robots so the style is varied. The real main thing though is that the art comes from only college kids. I believe college kids spend too much money on clothes that they see no profit from. Rethink switches it up gives college kids a chance to make their own style of clothes and see some profit in return. This is the first line out and I hope to add at least one more girl shirt and one more guy’s shirt in the next month


Hamburger Disco? WTF (0)

Got a weird email telling me about a hamburger disco

– I was thinking like it was a sale at Burger King or something but turns out to be a shirt shop lol. Here is a little about them.

“Hailing from Vancouver, British Columbia, Matt & Jay started Hamburger Disco in 2007 to fill the void from never finding t-shirts with a decent hamburger on them. With a slew of artists, and dancing shoes in hand, the duo plan to bring sassy back one t-shirt at a time.”

Oh and did I mention they are printed on 100% combed cotton, American Apparel tees.
