Mountain Bike T Shirt Art

Filed under: Uncategorized — scottnelson @ 4:01 pm

I’ve done a lot of artwork over the years that has ended up on T-shirts.    There was a time that I actually had a small T-shirt business in which I would race my mountain bike on weekends and then after I was finished, I’d sell T-shirts to other competitors.  Lots of fun and I think I actually made some money.

How elaborate a t-shirt design can be has changed a lot over the years.  Back in the day, I think my most elaborate design had 5 flat colors.  Now you can mix that many and come up  with what looks to be hundreds of colors.  Still… people like what they like and complicated isn’t always better.  Case in point– the mountain bike club I belong to (Team Bums) has been around since 1989 and there had been a recent interest in doing some “Old School” Retro styled shirts again.  I jumped at the chance to do them. The team consensus was to only do a few colors on white shirts.  Keep it simple!!!  Kind of fun to do this style of art again and the experience has rekindled my interest in selling shirts again.  Hopefully this time it won’t be from my car’s trunk.
