Hot & still looking ‘Shark as a Knife’

Hallo allemaal, ons weerbericht is HEET & still looking ‘Shark as a Knife’. Smooth as jelly, slippery when wet.. We hebben net een heerlijke korte vakantie achter de rug. Artwearness moest zich even ontladen en opladen. Daarom hebben we onze vakantie gebruikt om ons weer te laten inspireren. Zo zijn we naar te gekke musea geweest in Praag en Wenen en hebben ons gelaafd aan mooie natuur. We presenteren onze frisse, verse discount aan jullie ‘ Shark As a Knife’ voor elke ‘sharp dresser’ zoals jij zelf, natuurlijk. Dus check onze website en bestel jouw shirt.

een selectie van onze shirts is ook verkrijgbaar @ warehouse Blauwdruck, Zwolle.

Oh ja, onze web shop heeft tijdelijk een iets andere aanblik. dit heeft te maken met ICT issues waar wij zelf geen weet van hebben. Het is verder niet nadelig voor jou als klant behalve dan dat het er minder slick uitziet dan je wellicht gewend bent. Wordt aan gewerkt. excuses voor enig ongemak.

We houden je op de hoogte!, echt de coolste, edoch onontdekt door enkelen, t-shirt print design web-shop

Launch of design Surreal!

(scroll naar beneden voor de Nederlandse versie:)

Yesss! today is the day that our new design will launch. Design ‘’Surreal’’ is now a reality! Normally I don’t wright blogs, but today is an exception. My name is Damiën Eektimmerman (One of the artists featured on the ‘’More artists page’’  Artwearness and creator of the surreal design). And as guest blogger for today, I’m gonna tell you a bit about the process of the ‘’Surreal’ design.

When I heard the theme for this design was ‘’Surreal’’  I immediately got exited. Surrealism might be one of my favourite forms of art, so this assignment suited me very well.

During the first steps I came up with several concepts, but I wasn’t really feeling it. Until one evening Salvador Dali and his iconic moustache just popped up in my head. I could see his moustache spelling out the word ‘’Surreal’’, and knew straight away that this would be a great base for the design. Once I had the idea my head it seemed so obvious. Dali is a legend when in comes to surrealism, furthermore his way of looking at the world has been a huge inspiration for me.

Design Surreal shows his Royal surrealness, Salvador Dali. Man’s madness and genius captured in a surreal image it-self. What can we learn from the outrages art of Dali? Well, what we can learn from artists like Dali is creating that art is a process of a total fusion between art & soul. A little strangeness is more than welcome and helps by staying mesmerized and bewildered. An artist is really not in the first place a merchant; he’s the enchanter we are all longing for in this time and age.

Yesss! Vandaag is de dag dat ons nieuwe design online komt. Design ‘’Surreal’’ is nu realiteit! Normaal gesproken schijf ik geen blogs, maar vandaag is een uitzondering. Mijn naam is Damiën Eektimmerman (1 van de artiesten die te vinden is op de ‘’more artist’’ pagina). En als gast blogger voor vandaag  ga ik jullie wat vertellen over het process van het ‘’Surreal’’ ontwerp.

Toen ik hoorde dat het thema ‘’Surreal’’ zou zijn werd ik gelijk enthousiast. Surrealisme is misschien wel een van mijn meest favoriete vormen van kunst, dus dit thema paste perfect bij me. Tijdens de eerste stappen heb ik een aantal concepten bedacht, maar ik was er nog niet echt tevreden mee. Tot ik op een avond plotseling Salvador Dali en zijn iconische snor in m’n hoofd had zitten. Ik stelde me zijn snor voor die het woord ‘’Surreal’’ spelde, en wist gelijk dat dat een goeie basis was voor het ontwerp. Toen ik het idee eenmaal had leek het zo vanzelfsprekend. Dali is een legende als het aankomt op Surrealisme, en daarbij is zijn manier van naar de werd kijken voor mij persoonlijk een enorme bron van inspiratie.

Design Surreal toont zijne surrealistische hoogheid, Salvador Dali. De mans gekte en genialiteit zelf,  gevangen in een surrealistisch portret. Wat zouden we kunnen leren van de buitenissige kunst van Dali? Ik denk dat als we iets  kunnen leren van kunstenaars als Dali is het wel dat kunst maken een proces is van art en ziel. Dat een beetje raarheid meer dan welkom is en helpt bij het betoverd en  het verwonderd blijven. Een kunstenaar is niet in de eerste plaats een koopman, hij is de tovenaar waar we allemaal naar verlangen in deze tijd!
