T-Shirt Ideas, Which One Your Like?

  1. Agreed. The bottom one's the best. The middle one is too shoddy - not enough embellishment or stylization. The text in the top one is out of place and obscures her fingers, and her tattoo's details don't show through.

  2. Your glamorization of gangster life is ridiculous dude. I say scratch them all. You need to think about what you are portraying.

  3. Stop writing graffiti - gangs do it!

  4. I don't see anything here that implies any sort of endorsement of gangsterism. It's a chick throwing up MAC's initials (you would really have to stretch your argument to make a connection to stacking gang symbols, IMO). You can find black bandana's on any budding black blocer. Is it her tattoo? I mean, if she was nude, rolling around in stacks of cash, surrounded by expensive alcohol and guns, then I'd probably be suspicious. Of course, that's clearly not the case.

    Crudo enjoys the aesthetics of hardcore rap - give him a break. I'm stirred by the sight of urban ruins and broken cities. Does that mean I'm some bat shit crazy eschatologist who wants reality to collapse into an even bleaker future? No. Seriously - fuck political exigencies and the movement's priorities. I could probably do without the mind boggling fonts that crudo uses, but I don't see any infringement of anarchist seriousnessnessism (not that I would care if it was! rebellion FTW!). If I was going to critique this I'd probably complain about how it could be a shallow attempt at making MAC accessible to the youth culture market. But I'm not in the mood.

    Yeah, so... anyways... the bottom one definitely punches the face of god. The other two need to go back to crappytshirtopolis and serve time for not being gangster enough.

  6. Just to be clear about these shirts, they will have the image on the side of the shirt, bottom right, and will have some text in the middle, probably just read Modesto Anarcho, etc.

  7. bottom, although i don't see why it has to be on the bottom-right of the shirt? seems like it would look pretty weird.

    i have to ask though is it good to rep the crew by having a member , however masked-up, displaying prominently a very identifiable tattoo?

  11. I think the tshirt idea for a crew isnt the greatest idea in general.

  12. Well the idea I had was to use that image and then just have the text say "modesto anarcho" which would be general enough we could use them as fundraisers.
