Dang! Okay, so it was a SFY shirt…and well, it isn’t looking too dissimilar in concept to the Grandslam Summer design, to be honest.
I know Stuart is the current designer. And he’s fabulous…oh, but to just DREAM of something like that! One break! One special one off. And not even for monetary gain or anything, but just to be able to say “Frigging wow! What an honour! The band I love are allowing me to design a shirt!” It would be unreal.
But there we are. That’s not how the world works.
Still, one could argue I’ve had my five minutes.
Damn! I hate when my green-eyed monster rears its ugly head. But, god…it would just be so amazing.
I always want more.
I tell you what – I wish THAT was the bloody prize! To be allowed to design the next shirt! OMG…that would be AMAZING! And…in my dreams! Seriously. Nothing would make me happier!
Anyway, it’s not what this is…but you can win a new SM shirt, so…go for it!
A shame I can’t make any more. The fans want it. Like…really!
I really, REALLY want to do this! And…oh, how I wish I could.
This shirt is a ONE-OFF for a fan that approached me and asked if I could design a shirt with this imagery.
I KNOW it is copyright…but it is ONE SHIRT for ONE PERSON only! I have NOT sold it for profit! And I have NOT made multiples!
But, it shows what I can do. And I wish more than anything in this world I could do this for a living! This band is my ENTIRE UNIVERSE and nothing makes me more happy than sharing the love I have for this band. So…I continue…at my own expense to spread the love…and possibly get myself hanged!
Perhaps I can think about once again, having my own designs, with no wording, on t-shirts?
I don’t know! I never want to rock the boat. Piss off the band, management…Jim…get my arse kicked by “the powers that be”. But, this stuff almost makes me cry. Because…I’m good. I know I am FUCKING GOOD! And I WANT TO DO THIS!
I like the merch you can get from the Simple Minds shop…but I want Jim on my shirts…so I make them up myself. I *had* to have one of “The Swivel Chair”! He’s too beautiful! And i just realised, his head will be right between my chesticles…oh, dear *grins devilishly*
EAR MUFFS! Lol
Lol. OH MY GOD…I’m a fruit loop! Lol
I really went ahead and did it! Lol. I got the shirt made! Lol. It does look awesome though! At least I’ve helped security with their job! Lol
Oh, I am kidding! As much as I adore Jim…I’m faaaaar too embarrassed to go anywhere near him! If he had ever accepted my “doughnut date” offer…lord knows what I would have actually done!! Lol. Other than cower in a corner and pretend I wasn’t there. Pretended to have given him a dizzy.
What girl in her right mind would EVER stand him up, though? Must have rocks in their heads! Or be…BANANAS! Lol
And because I adore this man…I had to do this…it might be my Acoustic Tour shirt :-)))
