When I was in eighth grade, I had a t-shirt company idea where I would put monsters on shirts and sell them to my friends. I had a notebook full of little monsters drawn on shirt mockups and dreamt of every person in my skateboard crew donning the threads at local City Boardshop events. That was about a two month venture because I soon realized that I didn’t have the money, artistic talent or means to put my little monster doodles on t-shirts. This killed me and even though drawing on shirts with Sharpies looked punk and sort of like my idol Sid Vicious, it just wasn’t doing it for me.
Fast forward 15 years and my first t-shirt design is now live at ryanbrunty.storenvy.com. It’s a little surreal to me and the fact that I’m looking at an inbox full of excited individuals stoked on wearing Yerman has put a perma-smile on my face. I can’t thank you all enough for the support these past few days, this is really a dream come true. Now, I know this is my first foray into clothing design but I can guarantee you one thing, this is a shirt you’re going to love for a long, long time. It’s being printed on Anvil Fashion Fit tees which are comparable to American Apparel 2001s are 100% cotton, the design is being discharge screenprinted so it won’t be a bulky screenprint sticking to your skin in the summer heat and I can’t wait to start seeing my little sad yeti popping up on Instagram, at local shows and I hope you’re just as excited as I am.
Again, thank you for the support and I can’t wait to show you what’s coming next for Yerman.
